SuperValu Goodness Flaked Almonds
strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc work really well.
- Line a large Swiss roll tray (13 x 9 1/2 inches) with parchment paper ensuring that both the base and the sides are covered.
- Put the egg whites into a large, spotlessly clean, mixing bowl and beat rapidly until the mixture forms stiff peaks. You can use an electric hand whisk or a food mixer for this process.
- When the mixture has formed the peaks add in the sugar gradually, whisking thoroughly between each addition.
- When the correct consistency is achieved the mixture should be glossy and stiff.
- Spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with the flaked almonds. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4
- Bake for 20 minutes until lightly browned. Allow to cool in the tin.
