Jada's Coloured Meringues

Jada's Coloured Meringues

Inspired by: 
Jada who attends In a Pickle cooking classes.

Why not? Meringues are YUM!

She used:
4 egg whites- 150ml
1 cup caster sugar
2 tsp corn flour (gluten free)
1 tsp white vinegar
couple of drops of food colouring as per packet

What she did:
Preheat oven to 150C. Line baking trays with grease proof paper. 
Place egg whites in a bowl and mix with an electric or hand beater until soft peaks form. Add sugar gradually and continue beating until the mixture is glossy. Sift the cornflour over the mixture and with a spoon, fold through the vinegar. Create a swirl effect of colour (can have as many as three colours) by gently stiring through a drop of each colour, and leaving some mixture un blended still with the vibrant colour. Place portions the size of 1/3 on the trays, and shape as desired. Place in oven, and reduce the heat to 120C. Bake for 30-35 mins. Turn the oven off and allow the meringues to cool inside.
