Ube Meringue

When you have lots of unused egg whites make meringues 🤣🤣🤣
Ube Meringue is a simple sweet dessert made with egg white and ube extract quickly baked in low heat until crisp in texture.


After making these ensaymada I had leftover egg whites from four eggs and for it not to go to waste, I made these, ube meringues. When I see meringues, it reminds of my childhood, during those times one of my well-off friends really love this sweet and every time we hang out, he tries to buy all of the stocks the “sari-sari store” near our friend’s house and brings it to us as our snacks. While it was not expensive back then, we don’t have that much money to buy all of the stocks a store has, if I can remember a pack of 5 pcs in a bag would only cost Php 2.00 at most, usually he buys 20 packs which is Php 40.00, still less than US$1.00. Imagine our energy back then, all of that young blood plus the sugar from these sweets, we certainly can play basketball the whole day without getting tired.

Fast forward many years, I still enjoy this treat but only when we have unused egg whites, this means I only do them when we make leche flan or any bread that just uses egg yolks. Can’t seem to find just the meringues here in Auckland so I have to do them myself. It’s not hard though, all you need is to beat the hell out of that egg white and sugar then at 190C for 2 minutes then turn off your oven and leave it there until the temperature dies down.

    Great way to use up those egg whites! We often end up with those and we dunno what to do with them.

  2. Wow! That’s probably the most unique and interesting way of using ube I’ve seen (And I’ve already seen quite a lot of ube recipes, especially on your blog haha!) Beautiful colour!

  3. These are so beautiful, and so easy to make! I picked up some ube flavoring and I think I will try these for our New Year’s eve party.
