Espresso Coffee Meringues

        There are times when some desserts ask for more egg yolks than egg whites and we are left behind with so much egg whites; it keeps running in my mind that i need to make use of it some how and i know it makes most of  us atleast me feel very very bad to throw it away. This is what happened a couple of days ago, i made a dessert which asked for more egg yolks leaving me behind with so much egg whites, which i was not going to throw away at any cost and wanted to make use of it. .

I don't think much when i start searching for a recipe, i just look out for good pictures than the recipe method, and may be the title too, and and there... im so so happy with what i found at last. Just seeing the the word Espresso in the recipe made me tempt to make these lovely Meringues, you can see the original recipe here

Yields: 30 nos

4 Egg whites ( left at room temperature for 30 mins)
1/4 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp Instant Espresso Powder ( i used Nescafe )
3/4 cup Sugar
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract ( opt ; but i used it )

  • Adjust the oven rack to lower and middle postions; and pre-heat the oven to 275 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large clean bowl beat egg whites with salt until frothy. Add in espresso powder and sugar in a slow stream beating on medium until incorporated. Beat until glossy and stiff peaks form.
  • Drop batter on prepared sheets using a rounded tablespoon. ( i used my ice cream scooper).
  • Bake for about 2 hrs turning pans halfway through cooking, until the meringues are firm to touch.
  • Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for 1 hour. Can be stored in a air tight container for upto 5 days.
