  • 8 large free-range egg whites
  • 440 g caster sugar
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 50 g desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup dulce de leche (thick caramel sauce) or Nestlé Caramel Treat

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 120°C.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper or a silicon mat. Place the egg whites in a large mixing bowl and, using an electric beater on a low speed, whisk until foamy.

Increase the speed and beat until stiff peaks form. Still on a high speed, beat in the caster sugar, a little at a time, until you have a stiff , glossy mixture. Quickly fold in the ground nuts and coconut, taking care not to lose too much air.

Spoon the mixture onto a baking tray in such a way as to create one large disc and a pair of smaller ones. Bake on a rack in the centre of the oven for 1 hour. Turn off the oven but leave the meringues inside to dry out for a further few hours.

Place the larger meringue disc on a plate or cake stand and spoon over some of the caramel sauce. Top with one of the smaller discs, and, again, add a dollop of caramel. Finally, position the remaining disc on top and serve immediately.
