Meringue Recipe

Meringue Recipe


-150 grams egg whites

-300 grams granulated sugar 

-Vanilla extract

-Food coloring (gel based only)


  1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a simmer. Preheat oven to 190 degrees Fahrenheit .
  2. In your metal mixing bowl combine the egg whites and sugar. Place the bowl over the simmering water and whisk constantly until the sugar has dissolved. This usually takes about 3-4 minutes. You can also test if the sugar has dissolved by rubbing a bit of the mixture with your finger tips, it shouldn’t feel grainy. 
  3. Remove bowl from the heat and with the whisk attachment beat on the highest setting for 7-10 minutes. The meringue will be very glossy and will hold its shape (stiff peaks). Add the vanilla extract and food coloring and beat until combined.
  4. Transfer to a large pastry bag fitted with a pastry tip of your choice and pipe away!
  5. Bake at 190 degrees for an hour to an hour and half, depending on the size of meringues. I like my meringues more marshmallow-ey on the inside but if you prefer it fully dry then you should bake longer.
