Resolute Meringue

Pin It


I've been following Gesine Bullock-Prado's blog since I read her first book, Confections of a Master Baker, for her drool-worthy concoctions. Her Resolute Meringue caught my eye. Yesterday I decided to try it myself.

Making meringue is a messy business. I had it coming up and out of everywhere when I piped it onto the parchment paper. I couldn't quite get the perfect tight circles Gesine did. After I baked them, some of the meringue stuck to the paper. They got a bit mangled. Those disks I used on the bottom. The raspberries and yogurt were sandwiched in between two of the disks. You can't quite see the heart on the top so here it is alone. I like how they came out!


My girl loved Resolute Meringue! I liked it too but, wow, it is sweet.

  1. I have never tried making meringues. My sons have, though, with their grandma. So maybe I should ask them to help me make some!

    That looks really good, I think you did a great job.

  9. I tried to make meringues once and it was a disaster! I suppose enough time has passed to give it another go...

  11. Theres a programme on BBC at the moment called 'Baking made easy' and I have been meaning to try meringues ever since I saw it on there. I should, I have a food processor which makes it easier

  12. My grandmother makes delicious meringue but I've never had it anywhere else. Wonder if she'd give me her recipe. ;) This looks like a great Valentine treat.
