Do you wonder what the difference is between French, Swiss and Italian Meringue? Do you wonder how you even make any of those and what classic mistakes to avoid? Well, it’s lucky I’m here then because I will explain all in this Masterclass video. Meringues? EASY!

NB. Don’t use Granulated sugar as it’s too course and will take too long, meaning you will over-beat your meringue. Don’t use powdered/icing sugar as there are additives in this sugar which may have an adverse effect on the meringues. You will need Electronic Scales for the perfect meringues. Please don’t ask me for conversions. If you want to work it out on your own, go nuts but I would recommend this investment!!

For the French Meringue…
2:1 Sugar to Eggs (ie. 100 grams of egg whites, 200 grams of caster sugar)
salt + vanilla to taste

For the Swiss Meringue…

salt + vanilla to taste
(to turn it into buttercream, add 400g soft butter)

  20. Ana Katrina Aparicio says:

    Jemma, why does my pavlova always turns brown after baking after it's been in the oven for 40mins at 150C only? So i can't have really white meringue…

  21. Dominik E. Martens says:

  23. lindsey mcnab says:

  24. SOL Gaming says:

    @cupcakejemma: I don't have a sugar thermometer, would it work using your Marshmallow Meringue technique from your Triple-Lemon Lemon Cake recipe? πŸ™‚

  25. Marie-Claire Tartaglia says:

    Hi! That was fabulous! So, if I make the Italian Meringue to top a pie… what temperature should I bake the meringue in the oven? I am going to invest in a blowtorch for sure. That looked mega fun. But in the meantime, yeah, oven temperature and recommended baking time? Should I broil? I’m happy to learn that this is a more stable method of making meringue to top pie…. because weeping meringue makes me want to weep too. Not good. Thank you for your video! It was extremely helpful!

  26. Ethel Okoi says:

    Thanks for the video Jemma. Can I achieve this with a hand mixer?

  30. Diana Liao says:

    Jemma, THANK YOU!! I love that you think on people who live in hot countries, like me, and teach useful tips. I found that if I bake after noon or in rainy days, when temperatures lower, it improves the results.
