When summer arrives .. even if it is for just a few hours , a day or if we’re lucky longer .. everything is so much (or at least for those moments) better .. brighter … happier .. its a time where calories are pretty much set to zero no matter what you eat .. well they are for me .. I mean all those delish summer puddings .. which many include a whole punnet or two of fresh fruit .. I mean surely that’s cancelling out all the double cream .. or if you’re really spoiling yourself clotted cream (insert the licky face emoji here). Its a time to decorate any and every surface with freshly snipped flowers ..
Last weekend I decided it was high time I made a meringue .. not just any meringue .. a chocolate one .. if that doesn’t sound summery then just add cream and a whole lot of fresh raspberries .. and as if by magic you have summer on a plate .. and suddenly a lot of friends!
This is honestly so easy to make .. and the beauty of a meringue is that they aren’t meant to be super pretty .. the crunchier .. crumbly .. non uniformed the better .. to me it just makes it look even tastier.
So how hard is it to make? … oh but that’s the joy its really not difficult at all .. believe me I do love baking & creating .. & if its super simple that’s even better.. its a kinda mix it slow & steady .. bake .. cook and decorate kinda pudding ..
It really is that simple .. and that tasty .. believe me when I say after saying I’d finished photographing this .. it was gone before nightfall !!!
I’d love to know if you make this .. and what you thought .. like I said I really do enjoy baking / cooking .. and photographing it to create these type of posts .. so if you have of your own suggestions … I’d love try new things … just comment below.
