- 3 egg whites at room temperature
- 155 grams caster sugar (3/4 cup superfine sugar)
- ⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 cup homemade whipped cream
- mixed berries – strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries – your choice!
Preheat oven to 250F
Whisk the sugar and cream of tartar in a small bowl. Add egg whites to bowl of a stand mixer with the balloon whisk attached and whisk at medium speed until the eggs begin to look foamy. Add the sugar mixture slowly at medium speed until all is incorporated. Increase the mixer speed to high and whisk until you can put a little bit of the mixture between your fingers and you don’t feel the sugar crystals.
Line a baking sheet with baking paper. Place mixture in a piping bag or plastic bag with the corner cut and place the tip near the paper and squeeze until you have a small mound. This mixture will make four small mounds.
Then take a knife and flatten the top and make swirls around the sides. The swirls help to keep the meringue upright. Bake for 30 minutes and then turn the oven off until cool. I left these in the oven until serving (dont forget them if you are preheating the oven for something else!)
Remove from the paper and place on plates. Top with whipped cream, then berries.
