Apple Meringue


Last night I wanted to use up some egg whites I had leftover from my weekend dalliance into ice cream making. I also remembered I had some Bramley apples in the fridge and therefore the obvious solution was Apple Meringue. It’s such a quick and easy pudding that I first made it a school. If you got a task to make something for someone on a low fat diet or who was convalescing then this was often the dish of choice. If you want this dish to be low fat then you can omit the egg yolks which I did as I’d already used them in my ice cream.

I’m happy to say that everyone in the family loved this pudding which believe me is no mean feat! Clean bowls all round with a small portion left for one lucky person today!

This is a great pudding for Autumn and if you’ve over indulged like we did with the ice cream you can feel satisfied without the guilt associated with a lot of puddings!

I am entering my Apple Meringue into Javelin Warrior’s “Made with Love Mondays” challenge as it fits with the theme of making everything from scratch.

I’m also entering this pud into Ren from Fabulicious Food’s Simple and in Season, this month hosted by Katie from Feeding Boys and a Firefighter.


Put the prepared stewed apple into an oven proof dish.


Whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks and then add the sugar gradually.


Spread the meringue over the apple with a spatula.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

A quick and easy pudding you can make amid your dinner preparations which looks impressive, tastes delicious and won’t pile on the pounds!
Recipe type: Pudding
Cuisine: English
Serves: 4
  • 3 Cooking apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced
  • 4 tbsp Sugar (or to taste)
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 3 eggs (separated) Yolks are optional
  • 160g / 5 ½ oz Caster sugar (white or golden)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Put the prepared apple slices in a saucepan and drizzle over the lemon juice, 4 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp of water.
  3. On a low heat stew the apples until tender stirring every now and again.
  4. Towards the end of cooking taste and adjust sugar if needed. Once tender set aside.
  5. Now make the meringue by whisking (electric) the egg whites in a large clean bowl until they form stiff peaks.
  6. Gradually add the castor sugar 1 tbsp at a time whilst still whisking. You should end up with a smooth and glossy meringue.
  7. If you have the egg yolks whisk them into the stewed apples and then put the stewed apples into an oven proof dish. Otherwise simply use the plain stewed apples.
  8. Put the meringue mixture on top of the apples and spread evenly with a spatula. If you like a spiky effect just pat the meringue with your spatula all over.
  9. Put in the oven for 15 minutes until pale golden brown.

    great variation, I also like gooseberry meringue, anything tart is great with the sweet topping

      Gooseberries seem such a rarity these days, my childhood was full of them – such a shame!

    Yes, I still have plenty of apples. This would make a great change from Christmas Pudding.
