The perfect dessert for special occasions
My mum is from New Zealand - and this dessert is our go to for special occasions like birthdays and Christmas! It's light, fluffy and delicious!
Pre-heat your oven to 110℃ (230℉)
After carefully separating your egg whites (make sure you do not have any egg yolk in your egg whites as it wont work if you do) add your egg whites and a pinch of salt into a very clean bowl.
Using a stand mixer or a hand beater start whisking up your egg whites.
Whisk until a light foam forms then gradually (slowly) add your caster sugar. Take your time with this - slowly your egg whites will form stiff peaks.
Scrape down the sides as you go.
Once you have incorporated all the sugar, fold in your cornstarch, lemon juice, vanilla essence and hot water.
