How To Make Bakewell Meringues: Summer Inspire

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.

A walk around Bakewell

Fancy making some Bakewell inspired Meringues?

For The Compote:

For The Meringue:


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.
