Saving money on your weekly meals doesn’t mean you can’t have the odd treat, especially when you use leftover ingredients to make them. That way you can feel good about not creating food waste, while still enjoying a slice of cake.

I’ll be adding to this section of the blog as and when I make ‘leftover cakes’



2 Free Range Egg whites Large    38p
100g sugar    15p
Pinch of Salt    1p
Seasonal Fruit    ?

These prices are an estimate and total  54p + fruit


Preheat the oven to 150°C / Gas Mark 2.

Put the egg whites into a large, clean bowl and beat with a handheld electric whisk until they hold stiff peaks. Gradually add the sugar and pinch of salt, whisking constantly, until the mixture becomes thick and glossy.

Spoon or pipe the meringue on greaseproof paper on a baking tray, then bake for about 1 hour or until the meringue is golden.

When the Meringue is cooled, whip some double cream and decorate the top with it and some fresh fruit.
