This is a very very simple recipe that is basically a meringue. Is a meringue. Quick to make, looks pretty, nice and chewy inside and crusty on the outside with cornflakes to add texture and crunch. Like all things sweet it is a good accompaniment to a bitter cup of coffee.
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 cup cornflakes
1 tsp vanilla essence
Beat egg whites with the whisk attachment until stiff then add sugar gradually until soft peaks form. Add vanilla essence and beat a while more. Do not over beat otherwise the meringue will 'fall'.
Fold in cornflakes with a spatula.
Put little mounds on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper and bake at 170 C for 20 -25 minutes.
