Can You Make Meringues In The Microwave?

This may be surprising but yes, you can indeed make meringues in the microwave! Personally, I’m always on the look out for recipes that are nut, dairy free and low in fat. What makes these little beauties even better, is that they can easily be made ahead of time and they are super fun to get the kids involved too!

These are the perfect quick and easy make for the school bake sale, as from years of experience, I can tell you that hardly anybody brings anything suitable for children with allergies, so these are superb. Trust me, your PTA will thank you!

Whether huge, chewy clouds or crisp shells bound by thick whipped cream. Meringues are a dessert that always rises to the occasion.

A mixture of whipped egg whites and sugar that is baked at a low temperature for several hours in the oven (or minutes in a microwave) until dry on the outside and sticky on the inside. Meringues are easy to prepare and extremely versatile. Make them into pavlova, Eton mess, baked Alaska, lemon meringue pie or individual desserts covered in melted chocolate, cream, fresh fruit or toasted nuts.
