  • 3 large egg whites,
  • 175g  equal quantities of caster sugar and icing sugar, sifted together
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp Douwe Egberts Pure Gold coffee, sifted finely using a tea strainer
  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts, (optional)


  1. In a grease free mixing bowl using an electric whisk whisk up the egg whites until the mixture stands in stiff glossy peaks.
  2. Gradually fold in the sugars and salt a table spoon at the time.
  3. Continue whisking until very stiff and shiny.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  5. Fold the coffee into the meringue to give a marbled effect, Using two spoons make either 2 or 3 even sized meringues and sprinkle over nuts if using.
  6. Bake in the oven 110C or gas mark 1/4 for 2- 3 hours until crisp and firm, (the longer you cook them the crispier they will be in the centre) but still white in colour.
