Mini meringue topped rhubarb desserts

Serves: 3 | Preparation Time: 30 min

Ingredients 

  • 1 bunches rhubarb, ends trimmed, washed, cut into 4cm pieces
  • 150g frozen raspberries
  • 70g caster sugar
  • 20g flaked almonds (raw)
  • 30ml Amaretto liqueur (I have used cointreau and this is also very nice)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 50g caster sugar, extra

Instructions 

Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the rhubarb, raspberries, sugar and Amaretto in a large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer.
Cook, covered, for 20 minutes or until rhubarb is soft.
 
Use an electric beater to whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form.
 
Gradually add the extra sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking constantly until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is thick and glossy.
 
Divide the rhubarb mixture among six 180ml-capacity ovenproof dishes. Spoon the meringue mixture over the rhubarb mixture and sprinkle with almonds.
 
Bake in oven for 10 minutes or until the almonds are light golden.
 
Serve immediately.
