This is a delicious classic dessert with a modern twist. It looks super impressive but it is so easy to make!

Ingredients:

For the meringue:

4  egg whites

225g caster sugar

2 tsp cornflour

4 tsp Suki Matcha

1 tsp white vinegar

1 tsp vanilla extract

To decorate:

240g whipping cream

Approx. 300g mixed fruits of your choice (We used strawberries, blackberries and pomegranate seeds)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C/300°F.
  2. Place a sheet of baking paper on a tray, then, using a compass and pencil, mark out a 23 cm circle, then draw a 13 cm circle within the larger circle. Turn the paper over and set aside.
  3. Make the meringue. In a dry, clean glass bowl, use an electric mixer to whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture is nice and glossy.
  4. Sift in the cornflour and Matcha tea, add the vinegar and vanilla extract and gently fold through using a clean, dry spatula, taking care not to over mix.
  5. Carefully spoon the mixture between the two circles, distributing equally to create a wreath shape. Use a spatula to create waves and peaks.
  6. Reduce the heat to 120°C/250°F and bake for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and leave the meringue inside to cool completely.
  7. Once cool, carefully transfer the meringue wreath to a serving plate, then spoon the whipped cream over the top. Decorate with fruits and sift some extra Suki Matcha on top.
