How To Make Bakewell Meringues...

Happy Saturday!

I am always sharing my love of Bakewell on the blog and today I have a Bakewell inspired meringue recipe to share with you. 

We had a lovely day out in Bakewell last week and it is one of my favourite places in England to visit. 

We love to take a walk around the peaks, shops, river, a walk up to the Church and then we usually pick a nice cake to take home with us after our fish and chips. 

Fancy making some Bakewell inspired Meringues?

How To Make Bakewell Meringues:

  • 8 Amaretti biscuits

For the Compote:
  • 250g cherries, stoned (fresh or frozen)
  • 2tsp lemon juice
  • 30g sugar

For the meringue:
  • 2 egg whites
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 2tbsp almond butter


1. Heat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/ Gas 3. Crush the amaretti biscuits and tip into the bottom of 4 ramekins or ovenproof bowls. To make the compote, heat the cherries, lemon juice and sugar, bring to a simmer and cook for 10mins until the cherries soften and the sauce becomes syrupy. Set aside to cool.

2. In a clean bowl whisk the egg whites to a soft peak, add half the sugar and continue to whisk till shiney. Add the remaining sugar bit by bit whilst whisking. In a separate bowl stir a spoonful of meringue into the almond butter to loosen it then tip it back into the meringue bowl and fold in gently to create a ripple effect.

3. Divide the compote between the ramekins then pipe or spoon the meringue on top. Bake for 30mins until the meringue is puffed up and golden.

Serves 4
