Method

1. Preheat the oven to 150ÂșC/gas 2. Draw two circles, one with a 25cm diameter and one with a 28cm diameter, on separate sheets of silicone paper.


2. To make the meringues, whisk the egg whites in a large bowl until stiff. Gradually whisk in the sugar, a teaspoon at a time.


3. Mix the vinegar and corn flour to a smooth paste, then fold the mixture into the meringue with 150g of the hazelnuts.


4. Divide the mixture in half and spread it onto the two silicone paper circles, each on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the remaining hazelnuts over the top of the smaller circle.


5. Bake the meringues for an hour, turn the oven off and leave the meringues to rest in the oven for another hour. Remove and cool.


6. Whisk the cream until soft peaks form, then fold in the raspberries. Spread the filling on the larger meringue and put the smaller meringue, right side up, on top. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Just before serving, dust with icing sugar.

This is a delicious meringue - chewy and gorgeous sandwiched with raspberries and cream. To make it even more decadent, I topped it with more cream and more fruit. I did not have flaked hazelnuts so I just coarse ground whole toasted hazelnuts and added it in. MAGIC! Would feed 8- 10 .

I prefer one layer of meringue as I think it looks impressive with the fruit displayed on top - but either way it tastes light - just right for a large party in the Summer. 5 stars
