On sundays, when my sons go swimming with their dad, I always bake. Or cook. And my daughter likes to help me. Most of the time that is. This sunday my daughter wanted to make something out of a book that was a present for her from my aunt. See picture below.
We have already tried other recipes from this book, and most of them need a lot of ingredients and a lot of work, but thankfully Kate picked the recipe for Meringue Ghosts!
With only three ingredients and very little work a very simple recipe, and after a few hours in the oven a very cute and delicious treat!
Just take two eggwhites, a pinch of salt, and 125 grams of sugar. Whisk the eggwhites with the salt until stiff peaks form, then whisk in the sugar until it dissolves.
With a piping bag make little ghosts and use (pieces of) raisins to make the little eyes! In the oven at 130 degrees for 1,5 hours, and after that turn off the oven leave the ghosts in the oven (with the door of the oven open or just put a wooden spoon between the oven and the door) for another 2 hours.
The result: nice little Meringue Ghosts and a happy Kate!
