Lemon Flavoured Meringues

180g castor sugar
4 egg whites
1 tbsp cornflour
1 tsp white vinegar
1/8 tsp lemon essence
½ tsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 150°C.

Beat egg whites with an electric beater until soft peaks form, then add in sugar gradually, beating well after each addition. Sift in the cornflour and fold in the vinegar, lemon juice and essence.

Line baking trays with parchment paper. Shape the mixture into rounds using a small spoon and place them on the parchment paper. Bake meringues in the preheated oven.

Once the tray is placed in the oven, reduce the temperature to 120°C. Bake for about 30-35 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave the meringues to cool in the oven.
