  • 120g pure maple syrup, plus extra for drizzling (preferably golden colour for its delicate taste)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C/Gas 2. On a baking paper, draw around your serving plate in pencil to mark the shape for your meringue
  2. Using a hand-held mixer, whisk the egg whites together until they form stiff peaks. Then add maple sugar a tablespoon at a time until the appearance is glossy and smooth
  3. Whisk in the vinegar, cornflour and vanilla extract. Pour the mixture onto the baking paper and keep within the drawn circle
  4. Spread out using a palette knife creating a dip in the centre. Keep sides slightly higher than the middle
  5. Transfer onto a tray and bake in the oven for 1 hour
  6. Turn off the heat and allow the meringue to completely cool whilst in the oven. For additional layers, repeat the process
  7. Once all the meringue layers have thoroughly cooled, whisk together the cream and maple syrup in a bowl to form soft peaks and spread between each layer of meringue topped with a mixture of prepared fruits and drizzled with maple syrup

An irresistible dessert with a crunchy, sweet outside and a moreish chewy inside, wonderful with seasonal berries.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
