Crisp chocolate flavoured meringues filled with a ginger cream. Delicious!
2 large free range egg whites
100 g caster sugar(1/2 cup)
2 teaspoons cocoa powder, plus extra for dusting
150 ml double cream (2/3 cup)
3 tablespoons The English Provender Co. Luxury Ginger Curd
Place the egg whites into a large spotlessly clean mixing bowl and using an electric whisk, beat until they form stiff peaks. Add the sugar a tablespoon at a time, whisking well after each addition, until the mixture is smooth, thick and glossy
Sift the cocoa powder over the top and using a metal spoon fold it over a few times until the mixture is streaked
Using a teaspoon, place heaped teaspoons of the mixture, spaced a little apart onto the prepared baking sheets, until you have 30 meringues. Flatten slightly
Bake in a preheated oven for 1½ hours, or until the meringues peel easily away from the baking paper without resistance. Leave to cool.
Whisk the cream with the ginger curd until thick. Spread a little cream on the flat side of a meringue, then sandwich together with another meringue. Repeat with remaining meringues
Place on a serving plate, dust with a little cocoa powder. Serve immediately.
