Method

 
Preheat oven to 180°C.
 
Rinse apples.
 
Place whole apples in a baking tray.
 
Pour enough hot water into the pan to cover the bottom of the apples.
 
Bake apples for ±45 minutes - or until they are tender. (They must not fall apart.)
 
Cool slightly.
 
Remove skin and core of apples, until only the pulp remains.
 
Place apple pulp in blender and blend until smooth.
 
Chill.
 
Beat egg whites until stiff - gradually adding half the sugar bit by bit whilst beating.
 
Fold egg whites into apple puree - gently - don't beat it in.
 
Fold in the remaining sugar and vanilla essence.
 
Beat with electric beater or mixer until foamy and shiny.
 
Dish into a glass serving bowl or individual glasses (Martini glasses look very fancy!) and chill for about 3 hours before serving.

Chef's tips:
 •If you don't own an electric beater, don't even go there. Whisking by hand will leave you with injured wrists!
 •You can use rum instead of vanilla essence for a ‘grown up’ version.
 •Garnish with thin slices of apple with the skin still on. (Place apple slices in water with lemon juice to prevent discolouring.)

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
