Watch these effortless meringues quadruple in size as they cook in under two minutes

Sift 300g of icing sugar over 1 lightly beaten egg white. Stir until the mixture is a thick, pliable icing and roll into balls. Line a plate with kitchen paper.
- STEP 2
Put 3 balls at a time on the plate and microwave them on high for 1½ mins – and watch, in amazement, as the balls balloon and puff into meringues.
- STEP 3
When they are cool, use the meringues in desserts. They’re perfect for sandwiching together with whipped cream and sliced tropical fruit.
