Ingredients

  • egg whites 3
  • caster sugar 150g
  • cornflour ½ tsp
  • white wine vinegar ½ tsp

WHITE CHOCOLATE CREAM

  • white chocolate 100g, broken into pieces
  • double cream 400ml

ROSÉ SYRUP

  • rose wine 300ml
  • caster sugar 150g
  • raspberries 300g

Method

  • Step 1

    Line two baking sheets with baking paper and draw 3 x 10cm circles on each piece of paper.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oven to 170C/fan 150C/gas 3. Put the egg whites into a large, clean bowl and use electric beaters to whisk to firm peaks. Add the sugar 1 tbsp at a time, while whisking, until the mixture holds stiff peaks and is shiny and glossy. Carefully whisk in the cornflour and vinegar.

  • Step 3

    Divide the mixture between the 6 circles on the baking paper, then use a dessertspoon to make into rounds with nests in the middle. Put into the oven and immediately turn the temperature down to 150C/fan 130C/gas 2 and cook for 40 minutes, then turn the oven off and leave inside to cool for 1 hour. Move onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Step 4

    For the white chocolate cream, put the white chocolate and 150ml of the cream into a small pan and gently heat until all of the chocolate has melted. Pour into a bowl, cover the surface with clingfilm and chill until cool and thickened.

  • Step 5

    For the rosé syrup, put the wine and sugar into a small pan, and simmer until reduced and syrupy. Leave for 15 minutes to cool, stir in the raspberries, then leave to cool completely.

  • Step 6

    To finish the white chocolate cream, whip the remaining cream to soft peaks, then gently fold in the white chocolate ganache, whisking again to thicken, if needed.

  • Step 7

    Put the meringues onto plates, spoon on some cream, then finish with the rosé syrup and raspberries.
