This is truly one of my favourite “lighter” desserts. When made correctly the meringue literally melts on your tongue. Slight cracking is completely normal so no need to panic (not that you would, right?!) The texture of the melting meringue in combination with the real whipped cream and fresh berries is truly divine. The trick is after the cooking time to turn off the oven and just leave it there to hang out for another 30 minutes. How ever tempted you are do NOT open that door! Your patience will be rewarded.
I would love to hear how it turned out for you.
