Baking for the boyfriend: Meringues

May 4, 2012


Three posts in one week? You never post three posts in one week! That's right, but I will (try to) from now on! After mastering the "two posts a week"-thing I'll try my best to make it three. I'm not sure how this will work out for the next two months though. My finals are coming up and at this time my whole life is about books, books, and more books. I recieved my exam schedule last week and let me tell you, it's going to be crazy. But I'm up for the challenge!

So, what to do when you have the afternoon off? I thought I'd make Kenneth happy and make him on of his fave treats! Meringues are not the easiest things to make, I know. I often mess them up myself but this time they were just perfect! Completely dry on the inside, crispy and sweet. Kenneth loved them! I used this recipe from bbcgoodfood.com and it's honestly the best one I've tried so far! Almost fail proof and it makes for delicious meringues. I know so, because every good chef tastes before she serves!

  4. You are so brave to take those on - I'm so intimidated by merengue. And I'll look forward to reading more posts. :) Have a great weekend!

  10. Why did you have to link me this right in the middle of my meringue craving :p hahahah! They look lovely! I can never get them right either - they always go really REALLY chewy in the middle when I make them haha! (can you believe I went to catering college?! - I'm the worst baker ever haha) but I may just have to scramble around the kitchen and make these if I can be bothered. Hope you had a lovely weekend! :)

  21. I'll admit meringues totally scare me. I haven't event tried them yet so I really don't know what scares me about them. They seem so easy to mess up. But kudos to you for perfecting a batch!
    You have one lucky boyfriend! :)
