Meringue Nests

  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 100 g Caster Sugar
  • ½ tsp Lemon Juice

White Chocolate Ganache Filling (Optional)

  • 150 g White Chocolate
  • 70 ml Double Cream
  • Strawberries To Garnish (Optional)

Strawberry Coulis (Optional)

  • 150 g Strawberries
  • 50 g Icing Sugar


Meringue Nests

  • Preheat your oven to 100°C (80°F or gas mark 1) and line a baking tray with parchment paper
  • Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Put the egg whites in a large mixing bowl and add half a teaspoon of lemon juice.
  • With an electric whisk, whisk the egg whites on a low setting until the egg whites begin to foam and look frothy.
  • Whisk the egg white mixture on a high speed, adding a tablespoon of sugar at a time until it's all in. Keep whisking until stiff peaks have formed.
  • Put the meringue mixture in a piping bag, on the baking tray pipe a circle. In a continuous circular motion, fill in the circle.
    Then pipe another layer on top of the outer circle. See the video for a visual guide on how to do this.
  • Bake in the oven for 1 hour and 45 minutes or until cooked.

White Chocolate Ganache Filling

  • Put the white chocolate and double cream in a microwave safe bowl. On a medium heat, microwave for a minute or until the chocolate has melted.  
    Whisk the mixture with an electric whisk until thick and creamy.

Strawberry Coulis

  • Remove the hull from the strawberries and slice it into quarters. Place the strawberries in a pan with the icing sugar. 
  • Simmer on a medium heat for 10 minutes or until the strawberries have broken down. For a smooth sauce, blend the mixture into a paste and pass it through a sieve.
  • Once the meringues are baked, wait for it to cool down before piping the ganache inside the nest and topping with chopped strawberries and homemade strawberry coulis.



TIP: Do not overheat the white chocolate and double cream or it will split. If this happens add extra double cream when whisking to combine the ganache together.
