Ingredients

  • 6 medium free-range eggs, whites only
  • 330g caster sugar
  • ½ tsp rosewater
  • ½ tsp pink food colouring
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder

Method

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 120°C/gas mark ½. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment.

  2. 2

    In a grease-free glass or stainless steel bowl, use an electric hand mixer to beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Add the sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, and continue beating until the meringue mixture is thick and glossy. Spoon half the meringue mixture into another bowl and set aside.

  3. 3

    Fold the rosewater into one half of the meringue. Dot the food colouring over the mixture, then gently fold to create a rippled effect. Sift the cocoa over the other half of the meringue and then gently fold through to create a rippled effect.

  4. 4

    Spoon the pink meringue mix on to one lined baking tray in 3 large dollops and spoon the chocolate mix on to the other. Cook for 2 hours, then turn off the oven and leave the meringues in the oven for a further hour.
