Berry Swirl Meringues

Berry Swirl Meringue

These meringues are a real treat. If you can’t find strawberry powder, swirl in 1 tablespoon of runny strawberry jam instead. It won’t be quite as pretty, but will taste divine. Serve with plenty of cream and berry sauce, or sandwich together with whipped cream.


  • 4 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp strawberry powder (from food stores or online)
  • 1 cup mixed berry jam
  • 1 cup thickened cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 120ºC. Line two trays with baking paper.
  2. In a very clean electric mixing bowl, beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until white, foamy and holding medium peaks. Slowly sprinkle in 1 tablespoon of caster sugar at a time, while beating until thick, white and glossy – this will take about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle over the strawberry powder and carefully fold into the meringue, leaving ripples and swirls.
  4. Dollop spoonfuls onto the trays, leaving a little room for them to expand. Bake for 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 100ºC for the last 40 minutes or until dry and hollow-feeling. Turn off heat and leave to cool in the oven with the door ajar.
  5. For berry sauce, simmer the jam with ¾ cup water until warm and glossy.
  6. Serve meringues with cream and berry sauce.
