Ingredients
Pour people
  • Egg white(s) : 100 g
  • Caster sugar : 160 g
  • Flaked almonds : 50 g
  • For the cream
  • Lemon(s) : 0.25 whole
  • Passion fruit(s) : 8 whole
  • Caster sugar : 200 g
  • Egg yolk(s) : 3 whole
  • Unsalted butter : 200 g

Method
  • 1. FOR THE MERINGUE:

    Preheat the oven to 150'C.

    Place the egg white in a bowl and whisk until thick but not at all stiff. Add the caster sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice to the egg whites and then beat to stiff peaks.

    Pipe the meringue on to a silicone baking sheet and sprinkle with the flaked almonds.

    Transfer to the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes.

  • 2. FOR THE PASSION FRUIT CURD

    Cut the passion fruits in half and scoop out the seeds and juice.

    In a bowl, mix together the egg yolks and the sugar. Add the passion fruit juice and seeds.

    Place this mixture in a saucepan and heat gently. Once warm, whisk in the butter until you have a thick mixture.

    Pass the mixture through a sieve to remove the passion fruit seeds. Set aside and allow to cool.

  • 3. TO SERVE

    Once the passion fruit curd has cooled, spoon it on to a meringue.

    Dot some fresh raspberries on top of the passion fruit and then add another meringue layer.

    Repeat to create your meringue tower!
