Ingredients

  • 4
    egg whites
  • 375
    ml
    castor sugar
 

Method

 
Preheat oven to 100 °C.
Whip the egg whites with a beater until they form soft mounds.
Add half the sugar, a little at a time, and then add the rest of the sugar in one go and mix well.
This is what makes the centres all soft.
Pile them high in blobs on a baking sheet and bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
It's very important that your oven is not too hot, otherwise they cook too fast, get burnt on the top and turn into rubber balls.
Serve with whipped cream and berry sauce, with roasted naartjie slices, or with cream, sliced mangoes and tosted almonds.
Give them a good dusting of icing sugar just before serving.
Tip
Use the egg yolks to make custard or a very rich omelette.
This is, of course, for those who don't have any cholesterol problems.
