Printable Recipe

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

Preheat the oven to 140°C, Gas Mark 1. Lightly grease 2 large baking sheets and line with baking paper

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.

  1. They both look luxurious. That ginger curd sounds very tasty.

  2. Ramona it is a very delicious heavily gingered lemon curd. Fabulous! You could make it yourself by making some lemon curd and adding grated ginger to the curd mixture while you are cooking it. I bet that would work fabulously! I'd also add some powdered ginger.

  3. Would you check the link to the Christmas Cookbooklet? Nothing happens when I click it. Thanks.

  4. Links have all been corrected now Kate! Sorry for any inconvenience!

  5. Ginger Curd?! That looks amazing!! And dangerous... I think I know what to get my Mom for Christmas now, she would go crazy over that! I like ginger, but she LOVES it. You really do get the neatest things to try!
