maple sweetened rhubarb meringues
12 portions

Ingredients

  • 60ml maple syrup, plus extra to drizzle
  • 200g rhubarb, chopped
  • 1 orange
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • 6 egg whites, room temperature
  • 300g sugar
  • 2 tsp cornflour

Method

  1. Add chopped rhubarb to a pan with 60ml maple syrup, cook for around 10 mins until rhubarb has softened and sauce has thickened. Set aside to cool. You can make this ahead of time and keep it in the fridge.
  2. For the meringue, pre-heat oven to 150c/300f/gas mark 2. Line a tray/trays with baking parchment and draw 12 2 inch circles. Turn the paper over so the ink doesn’t rub off onto your meringues.
  3. Add egg whites to a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, mix on low, increasing to medium until egg white become foamy peaks. Then add sugar a few tbsp at a time until incorporated and meringue becomes stiff and glossy.
  4. Mix in cornflour.
  5. Spoon mixture into your circles, flattening part to hold your maple rhubarb later on.
  6. Bake for 35-45 mins, making sure they don’t brown. Once that time is up, leave the meringue in the oven for two hours. Do not open the door. These meringues have a crispy exterior and soft interior.
  7. Once ready, pile high with delicious maple sweetened rhubarb compote and top with orange segments, pomegranate seeds and a generous drizzle of maple syrup.

Nothing says “spring” quite like these amazing maple sweetened rhubarb meringues from The Mother Cooker. The sweet maple pairs perfectly with the tart fruit and crunchy meringue for a dessert the whole family will enjoy.

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.
