Ingredients

For the recipe  Easter Meringue Nests

For the meringues:

4 Dr. Oetker Free Range Egg White Powder Sachets
200 g Caster Sugar
Dr. Oetker Pink Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr. Oetker Yellow Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr. Oetker Blue Extra Strong Food Colour Gel

To decorate:

100 ml Double Cream whipped or use a can of whipped cream
50 g Chocolate Mini Eggs

preparation

Preparation

Step 1: Heat oven to 140 C / 120 C Fan /  Gas

Step 2: Make up the Egg White Powder as directed on pack and transfer to a large grease-free bowl.

Step 3: In a large mixing bowl, using a hand-whisk, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the caster sugar, one tablespoon at a time, whisking continuously until you have a shiny, stiff mixture.

Step 4: Spoon the meringue into three separate bowls and add 4-5 drops of one Dr. Oetker gel food colouring to each bowl. Stir the meringue through a few times to create a marbling effect with the food colouring – be careful not to over-stir.

Step 5: Place a piping bag with a star nozzle fitting in a jug and fold down the edges. Carefully fill the piping bag 2/3’s of the way with one of the meringue mixes. Twist the top of the piping bag to secure it.

Step 6: Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Pipe a small amount of meringue under each corner of the parchment paper to secure it.

Step 7: To pipe the meringues, start by piping a circle around 3” in diameter from the outside in. Pipe two more circles on top of the outer edge to complete, so you have a nest. Repeat this seven more times using all three meringue mixes.

Step 8: Transfer the meringues to the oven and bake for 1 hour. Once cooked, turn the oven off and leave the meringues in the oven for at least two hours, or overnight if possible.

To decorate

Step 9: Once the meringues have cooled and set, pipe the canned whipped cream into the centre of the meringues. Top with mini chocolate eggs and Easter confectionary to serve.
