Italian meringue: perfect for making any cake extra-tasty, elegant and beautiful.

Today we are bringing you this wonderful simple meringue recipe, which if made properly really gives a distinguished look and taste to desserts!

All you need for this recipe are two ingredients (yes, two), and a kitchen torch to give that creamy meringue topping slightly crunchy on top.

Italian meringue is perfect for decorating cakes or desserts such as the Rocher Chocolate Pastry Crea Cake or the Chocolate Cake with Pears and Chocolate Ganache

In these cases, just like we are doing today,  the meringue is darkened through the use of a kitchen torch to create visually pleasing nuances and a little texture.

Prepare the Base

Heat the egg whites and sugar in a double boiler (you can put a bowl on top of a pot  of boiling water - the water must touch the bowl), stirring with a whisk.

The egg-white and sugar mixture needs to reach 60 degrees C, you can use a thermometer to achieve this.
