Preparation time: 15 minutes


280g caster sugar
80g water
180g egg whites (about 6 eggs)


1. Place the egg whites in a mixing bowl. Set over a pan of hot water.

2. Whisk the egg whites over the water until they reach 60°C.

3. Remove the egg whites from the heat and slowly whisk in the sugar. Continue whisking until soft peaks form. This can be done more quickly and efficiently by transferring to an electric mixer.
