These rhubarb mallows have a gorgeous gingery aftertaste- the perfect treat for kids and adults alike!


  • 450g (1lb) rhubarb, trimmed and chopped
  • 175g (6oz) caster sugar
  • 15ml (1tbsp) stem ginger syrup
  • 2 medium egg whites
  • 10ml (2tsp) chopped stem ginger


  • Place the rhubarb, half the sugar and 60ml (4tbsp) water in a pan. Heat gently until the sugar dissolves, then cover and simmer for about 10 mins until the rhubarb is tender. Stir in the stem ginger syrup. Cool.

  • Whisk the egg whites in a grease-free bowl until stiff. Gradually whisk in the rest of the caster sugar to form a firm and glossy meringue.

  • Half-fill a frying pan with water and heat until gently simmering. Drop small spoonfuls of the meringue mixture into the water and poach for 2-3 mins until just set, turning once. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

  • Divide the rhubarb between 4 serving glasses and top each with 3-4 poached meringues. Sprinkle with the chopped stem ginger. Serve immediately.
