- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
- 150 grams granulated sugar
- 60 grams muesli (hazelnut)
- 750 grams strawberries
- 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
- verbena (Fresh)
- dried strawberries
- 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
- Preheat oven to 125 degrees Celsius.
- Whisk the egg whites to peaks with sugar and vinegar. Add the muesli.
- Using a spatula, cover the sides of the bun pans with the meringue.
- Do not fill the pans completely, simply cover the sides.
- Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool, then gently remove the shells from the pans.
- Cut the strawberries into small pieces, and macerate for 1 hour with 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar, and 12 small, fresh verbena leaves.
- Whip the cream and confectioner's sugar to a whipped cream.
- If the meringue shells are too inflated, cut the inside with scissors to be able to put the strawberries in.
- Decorate with whipped cream (if possible use a pastry bag fitted with a fluted nozzle), add bursts of dried strawberries, and fresh strawberries with verbena leaves.
- Serve this dessert half an hour after its preparation, otherwise, the strawberries will soften the meringue. However, you can make your meringues 3 to 4 days in advance, and store them in airtight container.
