Monday morning orange and cocoa meringues !

One thing was certain, that the white kitten had had nothing to do with it – it was the black kitten’s fault entirely

orange and cocoa meringues

Ingredients (for 14 meringues):
– 2 egg whites
– 2.5 tablespoons sugar
– 4g vanilla sugar
– 1 teaspoon cocoa
– 2g orange zest

Method:
1 Preheat the oven to 200C (reduce it to 100C when putting meringues to bake)
2 Whisk egg whites with sugar and vanilla sugar for 5-10 minutes until strong peaks
3 Add orange zest and carefully mix it in, then separate whisked whites mixture into 2 halves and add cocoa only to one to give them different color !
4 Now start putting whisked whites on a parchment paper in small portions. I used a cookie cutter to give them a nice shape. Well, it takes time, but with a help of 2 teaspoons one can manage it perfectly 😉
5 Put our meringues-to-be in the oven and bake for 1.5 hour at 100C
6 Do not open the oven! At best, leave the meringues rest there overnight (-:
7 Enjoy it with a cup of strong black coffee some nice and sunny Monday morning !
