Apple and Plum Meringue

Apple and Plum Meringue couldn't be easier to make. Naturally gluten free, it makes a delicious topping to your favourite fruit. A lighter alternative to crumble or pastry.

This is a great alternative to crumble and tart particularly in the summer and is rapidly becoming one of our favourite gluten free summer desserts.

The meringue needs only two simple ingredients and a good mixer. You can make this by hand whisking with a balloon whisk but a mixer is much easier and quicker!
