Recipe

Tart rhubarb and spicy ginger combine to make a tasty filling for this delicious meringue cake.

Yield: 6-8 servings
Prep time: 30 Mins, Plus Cooling
Cooking time: 1 Hr

Ingredients

For the meringues:

  • 4 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup sugar

For the filling:

  • 1 lb 5oz (700g) rhubarb, trimmed and sliced 1in (2.5cm) thick
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp chopped crystallized ginger
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Confectioner's sugar, for sifting

Directions

Prepare ahead

The meringues can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week. The filling can be refrigerated 1 day in advance.

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. One tablespoon at a time, beat in the sugar until the whites are stiff.

3. Spread the meringue on the baking sheets into two 7in (18cm) circles. Bake for 5 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 250°F (130°C) and bake for 1 hour, until crisp. Cool completely.

4. Meanwhile, cook the rhubarb, sugar, chopped ginger, ground ginger, and 2 tbsp water in a large covered saucepan over medium-low heat for 20 minutes, or until tender. Let cool. If too liquid, drain off some of the juices. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

5. Whip the cream until stiff peaks form and fold in the rhubarb. Spread 1 meringue with the rhubarb cream and top with the remaining meringue. Dust with confectioner's sugar and serve.
