Try this delicious strawberry dessert!


  • 4 egg whites
  • 1⁄4 tsp cream of tartar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp orange liqueur (optional)
  • 4 cups strawberries, halved


Step 1

Beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt in a large bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Beat in sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, until stiff, glossy peaks form. Beat in cornstarch, vinegar and vanilla just until blended.

Step 2

On a baking sheet lined with foil, spread meringue into a 25 cm circle with a raised edge and a slight indentation in the centre.

Step 3

Bake in a preheated 120°C oven until firm to the touch, about 1-1/4 hours. If it appears to be browning, reduce oven temperature to 105°C. Remove from oven and let cool.

Step 4

When ready to serve, peel foil off back of meringue. Place meringue on a serving plate. Whip cream until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in liqueur, if using. Spread whipped cream over meringue leaving edge of meringue visible. Top with strawberries. Cut into wedges to serve.
