  • Air Fryer


  • 3 egg whites about 100g in total
  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 150 ml cream whipped
  • 3 tbsp winter berries compote


  • Preheat the oven to 120˚C. Line the base with nonstick baking (parchment) paper.
  • Place the egg whites into a spotlessly clean bowl and whisk on full speed until they form stiff peaks.
  • Reduce the speed of the mixer, add the sugar a little at a time, beating thorough until thick and glossy.
  • Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm (1⁄2 inch) star nozzle (tip).
  • Pipe 6 meringue nests of meringue onto the prepared baking sheet, making sure they do not touch one another.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until firm to the touch but still soft in the middle. I normally leave mine to cool in the air fryer with the door open to help the meringue settle.
  • Carefully lift the meringues off the paper.
  • In a second bowl, whip the cream. Then, fold some fresh berries or berry compote.
  • Serve the meringues with a spoonful of berry cream! Enjoy immediately.
