Baking for the boyfriend: Meringues

Three posts in one week? You never post three posts in one week! That’s right, but I will (try to) from now on! After mastering the “two posts a week”-thing I’ll try my best to make it three. I’m not sure how this will work out for the next two months though. My finals are coming up and at this time my whole life is about books, books, and more books. I recieved my exam schedule last week and let me tell you, it’s going to be crazy. But I’m up for the challenge!
So, what to do when you have the afternoon off? I thought I’d make K happy and make him on of his fave treats! Meringues are not the easiest things to make, I know. I often mess them up myself but this time they were just perfect! Completely dry on the inside, crispy and sweet. K loved them! I used this recipe from and it’s honestly the best one I’ve tried so far! Almost fail proof and it makes for delicious meringues. I know so, because every good chef tastes before she serves!

  • I love baking, I am getting an oven soon from my boyfriend and will go crazy with the vegan cakes and pasteries! Good to hear he liked them!

  • A fail proof meringue recipe? That's definitely worthy of a blog post. Looks delicious and your food styling is lovely. 😉

  • aw what a nice girlfriend 🙂 that looks scrumptious by the way!

  • You are so brave to take those on – I'm so intimidated by merengue. And I'll look forward to reading more posts. 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  • Guh, a little bit of drool came out of my mouth… meringues are delicious.

  • Hello! I just came across your wonderful blog and was wondering if we could follow each other on Blogger and Twitter? Take care. 🙂

  • S.

    aah wat lief van je! ziet er ook echt lekker uit ^^

  • Why did you have to link me this right in the middle of my meringue craving :p hahahah! They look lovely! I can never get them right either – they always go really REALLY chewy in the middle when I make them haha! (can you believe I went to catering college?! – I'm the worst baker ever haha) but I may just have to scramble around the kitchen and make these if I can be bothered. Hope you had a lovely weekend! 🙂

  • I bet those were delicious! I would love to make some one day! xo

  • Oh, looks fab! Now I wish I had some too! 😀

  • I am DYING to make meringues! YUM!!


  • I'll admit meringues totally scare me. I haven't event tried them yet so I really don't know what scares me about them. They seem so easy to mess up. But kudos to you for perfecting a batch!
    You have one lucky boyfriend! 🙂
