Clementine and chocolate Eton mess

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornflour
  • 100g caster sugar for the meringue
  • 1 clementine, peeled and separated into sections
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 60g dark chocolate
  • 100ml double cream
  • Preheat the oven to 120 C / Gas 1/2.
  • Whisk egg whites until quite stiff then add all the other meringue ingredients: vanilla extract, white wine vinegar, cornflour and 100g caster sugar. Gently continue whisking until you can form stiff peaks. Put meringue mixture on a sheet of baking paper. Spread into a slab a couple inches thick - not too flat!
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 1hr and 15 minutes. Remove to cool. Break into pieces.
  • Now you can serve up: Put the clementine mixture into the bottom of a wine glass, then a dollop of cream, add some syrup, drizzle with the melted chocolate, add some more meringue pieces. ENJOY!:)
