A large meringue cake that can be topped with whipped cream and fruit. This is an Australian specialty.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 4 egg whites
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon malt vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 150 degrees F (65 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Trace around a 9 or 10 inch round pan onto the paper to make a guide for spreading the meringue.
In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar. When mixture is stiff and sugar appears to be dissolved, add the vinegar and vanilla.
Spread mixture onto parchment paper, using the circular guide. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
