Nutella Meringues 

This is Bake Off challenge number 25. We were going to make simple meringues from one of the Bake Off cookbooks until we saw this recipe for Baci Meringues! This recipe is from “Meringue” by Linda K Jackson and Jennifer Evans Gardner. We made 10 meringues with 1 egg white and a quarter cup of sugar. How amazing is that?! 


Beat 2 Egg whites with a tiny amount of cream of tartar to soft peaks. Slowly add 1cup sugar while beating. Beat on high until peaks are stiff. You can stir in 1 1/2 cups of ground hazelnuts and 1 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa. We don’t have easy access to hazelnuts and we wanted to make a small amount so we left them out. Adjust the sugar level to half if you do that. 


If you feel like being fancy you can use an icing bag to pipe swirls onto baking parchment. The recipe just says to use a teaspoon which we did. Make sure the parchment paper is on a baking sheet and bake at 200F for 90 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the meringues in there until cool.

Spread with yummy Nutella! 


These are so good! Light as air and full of chocolatey nutty flavour. 

Happy baking!
