These giant meringues take me back to the Millennium when I lived in Fulham. Most Sunday mornings I used to walk down Fulham Road towards Sloane Square to have breakfast at Baker and Spice.
I loved the atmosphere with the big rustic wooden table in the middle of the room,surrounded by the windowsills stacked with all sorts of mouth-watering delights. Amongst the display were giant meringues. I often bought one and nibbled it as I walked back home. Lovely memories.
The Baker and Spice inspired me to have a go at making these huge joyful fluffy pillows of sugary eggy air laced with bitter cocoa and cinnamon.
They are still one of my weaknesses, just like the good old days. They are just simply yummy!
Eat them when you are on your own as they do make a bit of a mess and you do look slightly silly with cocoa
