Preheat the oven gas 1, 140°C, fan 120°C. Place 4 room-temperature egg whites into a large, clean, grease-free bowl.

Using an electric whisk, start whisking at a low speed, increasing it as the whites froth up and swell in volume.

Once the whites are nice and stiff, gradually add 225g (7 1/2oz) caster sugar, a couple of tablespoons at a time.

Continue whisking until the mixture is firm and moussey, with a glossy sheen. Then line two baking sheets with nonstick baking paper.

Place spoonfuls of the mixture onto the trays, leaving space between each one. Bake for 40-45 mins, until the meringues are crisp on the outside.

Turn off the oven, leaving them inside to cook for about 30-40 more minutes (for a crisp outside and a soft inside). Once cool, take them off the paper.
