We really love sweets, who doesn’t? Lars prefers chocolate, Jana prefers wine gum and chips. But I guess, everyone has that one treat he would chose over everything else. Sugar really is a drug and responsible for so many illnesses and problems people have but it is the same as always, if you don’t exaggerate, you can eat sugar as well. The important thing is that you don’t eat too much and look at the “hidden sugar”.
But you know, there are days where you definitely have to have a piece of meringue with caramel and fruit. I don’t belief anyone who says that he or she doesn’t want to eat these things every once in a while.
The reason why we did that meringue was that we decided to cook more from cook book, needed some sugar and there was a birthday, which is the perfect occasion to bake, I mean, you don’t have to eat the whole thing by yourself, right? This recipe is from Jamie Oliver (wow, no one could have guessed that ). And it is worth a try.
It really is easy and you can use the egg yolks for creme brûlee or maybe pudding, whatever 🙂
