Mediocre Meringue

It was good, but it didn't look as good as this.......

4 egg whites
240g sugar (being 120g caster sugar & 120g icing sugar)
1 teaspoon cornflour
1 teaspoon vinegar (if you dare - I didn't - maybe that's why it didn't look like a mountain range?)

Beat the egg whites for a long long time until they are so stiff you can turn the bowl upside down above your head without worrying if they will fall out or not.

Gently stir in the caster sugar,  a spoonful at a time, and then fold in the icing sugar mixed with cornflour.

Think about adding the vinegar.  If you do it, let me know what happens.

Spoon over whatever it is that you are baking - for us it was baked apples but it could be a lemon pie or anything else.

Bake in a lukewarm oven (50 degrees c)  for a very long time - say an hour and a half.

Serve and enjoy.
