Swiss Meringues

24 May

Meringues is named after the Swiss village Meringen and was invented by an Italian chef  Gasparini (Wikipedia). It is crispy airy sweet dish and children would simply love it.  In my home, as soon as Meringues was ready, it got over in no time. Planning to make the second batch soon with different colors and shapes.


  1. Eggs – 2, only the whites ( use the yellow for other recipes)
  2. Sugar – 100 gms
  3. Corn starch – 2 tbs
  4. Vanilla Essence – few drops
  5. Sugar sprinkles – 2 tbs


1. Add the egg whites to a bowl and whisk it using  electric whisker. Gradually add the sugar and continue whisking for till the mixture becomes frothy and a airy dough .

2.  Add vanilla essence. Corn starch should be included if the dough is little loose. The right consistency would be if you take it in a spoon the dough shouldn’t fall itself until you drop it.

3. Preheat the oven to 100 c and spoon the dough in to the tray. I used a piping bag to pipe the dough to tray. Sprinkle sugar colors on top.

4. Bake it for 40 minutes.


1.  Mix with food colors to make different colors. Use piping bag to make some beautiful shapes.

2. Use the egg yellow to make some cookies .
