This is a super easy and delicious low-calorie, snow-like sweet that doesn't require any butter or flour.

Ingredients: 1 bowlful

Egg whites
Powdered sugar
80-100 g (to taste)
2 teaspoons
Vinegar (or wine vinegar)
1 teaspoon
Granulated sugar
2 tablespoons
Vanilla oil
a few drops
Heavy cream
1/2 pack
Your favorite fruit (strawberries, kiwis, peaches, bananas, etc)
as desired


1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. In the meantime, prepare the meringue.
2. Put the egg whites in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer. When all the liquid turns to foam, add half of the powdered sugar and continue to beat.
3. Gradually add the remaining powdered sugar a little at a time and beat until stiff peaks form.
4. Once it becomes a proper meringue, gently fold in the cornstarch, vinegar, granulated sugar, and vanilla oil.
5. Shape the meringue into a round cake atop a baking sheet. It will deflate about 2 cm when baking, so adjust the height accordingly.
6. Reduce the oven temperature to 130°C, then bake on the lowest rack for about 75 minutes. Once baked, keep it in the oven to cool.
7. Once completely cooled, coat with whipped heavy cream and top with your choice of fruit. The meringue is sweet, so you don't need to add any sugar to the heavy cream!
8. This is a cross-section. The inside is fluffy, like a marshmallow, and the outside is crispy and has a caramel flavor.
9. It's best with some sour fruit. It's also great with bananas and kiwis.
