I have tried making meringues, but they don’t work quite right. Does anyone have a good meringue recipe they can share?

  • i made that a long time ago from my mum’s recipe book and it turned out great!

  • There are some good meringue recipes in the recipes section on this site. Very cute mini meringues. Maybe search and have a look. Might be just what you need?

  • My tip is to make sure your bowl is super clean. Any grease in the bowl can stop the egg whites from expanding. Lemon juice is good bowl cleaner or even a bit of vodka.

  • Can not remember the recipe but be sure to take the eggs out of the fridge a few hours before using so they are at room temp, and use a slow oven eg 150 or lower if its a fan forced oven. and do not over beat the eggs.

  • I will never forget my first meringue pie at my home economics class in my high school days . First , I struggled with making the shortcrust pastry . Next whipping the egg mixture seemed easy and baked successfully in the oven . Then the most important final step is the whipping of the egg white and sugar which I FAILED immensely and turned into a big white flop instead of a fluffy meringue . The funny thing was it looked really horrid but it tasted delicious . I attempted making a pavalova a few times and now for some reason I am able to whip up a meringue more easily now . What I think is because you must be patient and slowly pour the sugar a bit at a time and not all at once while you are whipping it . So be careful of that final step and it should turn out great .
