Winter Berry Meringue Tower

Show-stopping dessert fit for any dinner table. Soft meringue layers packed with juicy fruit, jam and whipped cream. Lightly drizzled with Cottage Delight's Sea Salted Caramel Sauce.

Ingredients

  • 8 large free range egg whites
  • 500 g caster sugar
  • 1200 ml double cream
  • 500 g blueberries
  • 300 g raspberries
  • 300 g blackberries
  • 4 fresh figs
  • 340 g Cottage Delight Strawberry Extra Jam
  • 2-3 tbsp Cottage Delight Sea Salted Caramel Sauce

Preparation

  1. For the meringue discs, preheat the oven to 150°C/fan 130°C/Gas 2 and line a baking tray with non-stick greaseproof paper.
  2. Place the egg whites in a mixing bowl and whisk until they form firm peaks when the whisk is removed.
  3. Add the caster sugar, a spoonful at a time, constantly whisking. When the sugar is absorbed, the meringue should look glossy and stiff.
  4. Using a tablespoon, spoon the mixture onto three non-stick baking trays to make six discs of reduced diameter. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  5. Lower the oven temperature to 110°C/fan 90°C/Gas ¼ and cook for a further 1-1½ hours until crisp on the outside and gooey in the middle. Leave to cool.
  6. To serve, whip the cream and spoon a generous layer over the whole of the largest disc. Cover with blueberries, raspberries and blackberries and spoon over Cottage Delight Strawberry Extra Jam.
  7. Repeat with each layer until complete. Finish by adding the sliced figs as well as the remaining fruit to the top and around the base of the tower. Finally drizzle the Cottage Delight sea salted Caramel Sauce over the whole of the tower and serve.
