    Title: Philip Twizell's Cappuccino Meringues
    Categories: Five, Desserts, Dairy, Chocolate
    Yield: 30 Servings

    2 lg Egg whites
    100 g Caster sugar
    1 tb Strong espresso
    1 tb Fairtrade instant coffee
    1 tb Boiling water
    Double cream; lightly
    - whipped, to serve
    Cocoa powder; to serve

    Heat the oven to 100ºC/210ºF. Line a baking sheet with
    non-stick baking parchment.

    Pour the egg white into a clean, grease free dry bowl.
    Beat the egg whites for several minutes with an electric
    whisk, or in a mixer, until they are thick and hold firm
    peaks when you raise the beaters. Keep beating,
    gradually adding the caster sugar a tablespoon at a
    time, until it is thoroughly incorporated and you have a
    very thick, glossy meringue. Fold the coffee into the
    meringue; don't worry if it's slightly streaky and

    Pipe or spoon the meringues on to the baking tray.

    Bake in the oven for two hours, then remove from the
    oven and set aside to cool completely. Carefully remove
    the meringues from the paper. Use at once or store in an
    airtight container for a few days. Airtight is
    important, or they will start to soften.

    When ready to serve sandwich the meringues with the
    lightly whipped cream and dust with the cocoa powder.

    Tip: Flavour the cream with a coffee flavoured liqueur
    for added luxury.

    Serves: Makes about 30
