Method

  1. Heat oven to 140C/120C fan/gas 1. Line baking sheets with baking parchment and draw 3 rectangles, roughly 25cm x 12cm. Whisk whites to stiff. Gradually whisk in sugar to stiff again, then whisk in the cornflour and vinegar. Fold in the desiccated coconut and pipe, or spread, the meringue mix into 3 even rectangles. Scatter flaked coconut over one of the meringues and bake for 1 hr, then turn off oven and leave in there with the door shut for 1 hr. Leave to cool.
  2. Whisk cream, icing sugar and lime zest and juice to a thick consistency. Spread half over one meringue base (not the one with flaked coconut on top – save that for the top), and scatter over half the raspberries. Sit second meringue base on top, spread with remaining cream and scatter with remaining raspberries. Top with coconut-covered meringue and serve.

My wife made this at christmas this year. Really was very tasty. Maringues were lovely and the lime added a refreshing twist.

Great recipe. The coconut meringue was gorgeous. I left out the cornflour and the white wine vinegar as I didn't have them and have never needed them in meringues before. I also used strawberries as being a few day before Christmas I couldn't find raspberries anywhere. The combination of the sweet meringue with the zingy taste of the lime was fab. Will definitely be making these again.
