These mini passion-fruit meringues are easy to make and packed full of fruity flavour. With a gooey meringue centre, these sweet treats are perfect for serving at a dinner party or kids party.

Ingredients

  • 4 passion fruit
  • 2 med egg whites
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1-2 baking sheets, lined with nonstick liner or baking parchment

Method

  • Set the oven to 110-120°C/250°F/Gas Mark ½. Scoop the passion-fruit pulp and seeds out into a bowl (or pan). Heat in a microwave (or over a low heat) until the mixture boils and some of the liquid evaporates and it thickens slightly. Cool.

  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff and then gradually whisk in the sugar, a spoonful at a time, until about half the sugar is added. Fold in the remaining sugar to make the meringue.

  • Spoon 6-8 rounds of meringue on to the lined baking sheets. Add a small spoonful of the passion-fruit purée to each and swirl it over the top.

  • Bake the meringues in the centre of the oven for 1-1¼ hrs or until the meringues are dry. Turn off the oven and leave the meringues to cool in there.

  • Once they have cooled, place the meringues in an airtight container until serving.
