·         Serves 8

·         A little effort

Ingredient

·         Egg whites 4

·         Caster sugar 100g

·         Icing sugar 100g

·         Vanilla extract ½ tsp

·         Strawberry cream

·         Whipping cream 300ml

·         Vanilla extract 1 tsp

·         Icing sugar 1 tbsp

·         Strawberries 400g, 4-5 finely chopped and the rest hulled

Recipe

1.    Heat the oven to 120C/fan 110C/gas ¼ and line a baking sheet with baking parchment (don’t use greaseproof, it needs to be non-stick). Draw 2 rectangles 20cm long and 10cm wide on the paper, spacing them apart.

2.    Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks and then beat in the caster sugar in 4 batches, beating well between each. Sift in the icing sugar in 4 batches, folding it in each time. Add the vanilla. Spoon the mixture into a large piping bag fitted with a wide, straight-edged nozzle. Pipe the meringue in long stripes onto each rectangle, making sure the stripes rest alongside each other so there are no gaps. Pipe any remaining meringue onto a separate sheet in small rounds, no more than 1.5cm across and flatten any peaks with a wet finger. Bake the buttons for 30-40 minutes and the rectangles for 1–1½ hours or until they sound crisp when tapped (they may have a little colour, depending on your oven). Leave to cool.

3.    For the strawberry cream, very softly whip the cream, vanilla extract and icing sugar, then fold in the chopped strawberries.

4.    Lay one rectangle on a plate and spoon some strawberry cream down the centre, add a layer of sliced strawberries and some blobs of strawberry cream on top, then put on the top layer of meringue. Spoon the rest of the strawberry cream into a piping bag and pipe blobs all over the top, then add slices or quarters of strawberry and meringue buttons. Serve with any remaining strawberries.
