Today I am feeling blessed to have attended the baby shower of a very dear friend. She has been mentor, colleague, and friend and I feel fortunate to have shared this special day with her.

I wanted to bring something yummy to the shower, so I brought out my favourite recipe découverte of last year: raspberry swirl meringues.

Scrumptious raspberry meringues

These are just the most scrumptious, melt-in-your-mouth treats. I made them last Christmas with a salted caramel sauce (you can get my recipe here) but they are every bit as delicious without the sauce.

Hindsight’s 20-20 here, as I should have tried making blueberry meringues since my friend is having a boy, but there you go.

The recipe is dead simple (and is adapted from Style at Home magazine of November 2013):

4 egg whites

1 1/2 cups of icing sugar

1/2 cup of seedless raspberry jam

Preheat your over to 200°.

1. In a bowl, beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until soft peaks form.

2. Increase the speed and begin adding the sugar, a bit at a time until is it completely incorporated.

3. Continue to beat the sugar and egg white mixture on high speed until firm, glossy peaks form. (AKA when you can lift the beaters and the mixture stays in a good, thick peak. It took me way too long to figure that out, but no-one really tells you what “stiff peaks” means. You’re just supposed to know. Somehow. This is why I used to hate baking.)

4. Plop a spoonful of the jam into the egg white mixture and swirl it in one section of the bowl with a spatula. Dollop spoonfuls of the swirly mixture onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

5. Repeat that step until you’ve used up all your jam and egg white mixture!

6. Bake the meringues for 2 1/2 hours in the middle of the oven.

Et voilà: la perfection!

Simply delicious raspberry meringues

I hope your Monday is marvellously meringue-ful. That’s a word now. (I know what you’re thinking: “Stop trying to make ‘meringue-ful’ happen.”)

Have a great week, all!

  1. They look divine! I love meringues, but I’ve always been a little intimidated to make them. I’ve learned how to make pavlova since moving to New Zealand, and the recipe looks pretty similar. I may have to be brave enough to give them a try, because they look too good to resist!

  2. I love meringues! So simple. My mom always used to make them when I was growing up and I thought they were so fancy. I almost always go chocolate-filled, but I love the idea of adding raspberry jam to them – I’d never considered that as a possibility before. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi there! Visiting from the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop. These look so yummy! I’m with you on the “stiff peaks” part!

  4. These sound yummy!! Did you really bake them for 2 1/2 hours?? Hey I would love if you found time to stop over my place and shared your stuff on My 2 Favorite Things on Thursday Link Party …going on now!! I’d love to have you!! and I Pin everything!! 🙂

  5. You know what? I just made meringue today (for the third time). I think I got the right texture. The problem is they taste ‘eww’… Maybe my cream of tartar expired already without me knowing. I didnt’t know you could make meringues without cream of tartar. 🙁 These look so cute and meringue has always been a favorite of mine. Thanks for sharing and having these at the party. Have a lovely weekend! Happy FF! xx

  6. These are so elegant. Perfect for a Mother’s Day Tea :). Thanks for linking up to the Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party at Creative K Kids! I’ve pinned your post to the Tasty Tuesdays Pinterest Board

  7. These look wonderful! I’ve always wanted to make meringues, but I may try it with some strawberries. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday. Pinned.

  8. Beautiful! Meringues are one of those things I will not even try! Too intimidated! Yours are so pretty!! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! Have a wonderful day!
