Cardamom is the secret ingredient that makes these super-simple meringues special. Serve with a fruit compote and whipped cream if you like.


Serves: 40 

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup (200g) caster sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:1hour30min  ›  Ready in:1hour45min 

  1. Preheat oven to 140 degrees C. Line baking trays with baking paper.
  2. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Quickly beat in the cardamom. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared baking trays.
  3. Bake for 60 to 90 minutes in preheated oven, until meringues are completely dried out. Let cool before peeling off of the sheets. Can store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

Although I followed the baking instructions and only baked them for 60 minutes, they burned on the bottom. The cardamum flavour was extremely subtle, hardly discernable. The meringues were an unattractive brown shade due to the cardamum. - 29 Sep 2008


My husband is Iranian, and cardamon is a common spice among their recipes. We loved them specially with Chay (hot Iranian tea). Thank you! - 29 Sep 2008

Very light dessert and easy to make. I love cardamum, but I have to admit that I'm not really sure it went well in this recipe. I think almond extract would probably go better. - 29 Sep 2008
