roulade 3I’m not big on desserts but make me something with meringue and I will gobble it up. We tend to serve lots of meringue based desserts at our dinner parties. It’s easy to make and you can find all the ingredients in your pantry – egg whites, sugar, vanilla, heavy cream and confectioner’s sugar. Sometimes we also add in cornstarch and vinegar depending on the recipe.

Growing up, I only knew meringues to be used in two desserts – lemon meringue pie and baked alaskas, which we almost never had. In my house, we were served fresh fruit after meals. Then I met Kevin. Let’s just say he has a separate stomach for desserts! 😉 I thank him for introducing me to all sorts of delicious sweets and treats that I otherwise would not have tried like Christmas trifle, pavlova, vanilla slice napoleons, stewed apple with victoria sponge drizzled with creme anglaise, eton mess and meringue roulade. Ah meringue roulade, how delicious you are! (more…)
