Easy Chewy Meringue Recipe

A couple of weeks ago I had a delivery that got me so so giddy. The ever so wonderful postman and the lovely people from Domu.co.uk delivered me a shiny black retro VonShef stand mixer. This felt like the perfect opportunity to try and make a chewy meringue recipe.

I lovingly unpacked it and put in pride of place in my black gloss kitchen, it looks great! But I have also been putting this little beauty through its paces. Joe and I made cup cakes with it last week and it was fantastic.

I have always wanted to find the perfect chewy meringue recipe.

I remember my first attempt at chewy meringues 20 years ago, 18 eggs later and no meringues! Then. a few years ago I managed them but they were a bit golden! Not exactly white like I had envisaged.

Now I had my mixer there really was no excuse, thus yesterday I set the whole day aside for mastering a meringue recipe.
