Call it Dr. Daniela from Tel Aviv University that has made a research about the sweets’ effects on our body. In the end of research, she implied with the tagline “Go for it!” for the sweets. Even if you still disagree, then consider some other ways to enjoy the sweets without worry, making a dessert with healthy source for example! Just like how we make one Pavlova we call fruits of the forest meringue nest here.
How To Make Fruits of the Forest Meringue Nest
You will need:
3 egg whites
240 g (8 ½ oz) caster sugar
480 g (lib) mixed berries (raspberries, currants, blackberries, strawberries or a packet of frozen mixed red fruit)
300 ml (10 fl.oz) whipping cream
- Using a spotlessly clean bowl with no traces of grease, mix the egg whites (which have no trace of yolk) with the caster sugar.
- Place over a bowl of simmering water, ensuring the base of the bowl does not touch the water. Use a whisk to mix the sugar and whites until the sugar has dissolved and the egg white is warm to the touch.
- Remove from the heat and beat with an electric whisk until cold, thick and glossy. Use a piping bag and medium star nozzle, pipe in a spiral on a silicone paper to produce rings of approximately 7 1/2 cm (3 in.) in diameter.
- Pipe a border around the outside of the ring. Preheat the oven to 170°C / 335°F / gas mark 3 and bake the ring for approximately 15 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the meringues in overnight to dry.
- Once the meringues are cold, beat the cream and pipe a border of cream around the outside. Arrange the mixed fruit in the center and dust with icing sugar.
