I love meringues and it's really not that much hassle to whisk the egg whites and fold in the sugar. However, I also love an experiment. I had heard of microwave meringues and decided I would give it a go. I ended up experimenting with sizes and times in the microwave and can conclude that all variations tasted crisp and sweet but they didn't quite have the luxurious look of one made in the traditional method.
These would work well if you wanted to quickly make meringues to use as part of a recipe like Eton Mess or would work well sandwiched together with cream and fruit.
With only two ingredients needed and no arm aching whisking, this is a bit of fun to try out.
