Super easy – Super cool Meringues

MeringuesFor the people who know me they know that I die for meringues! They are soft, so sweet… I could eat 100 of them in just minutes. Unfortunately they are very hard to cook, and most of the times for they come up as a disaster.
The other day there was this picture on Facebook of a friend of mine that was making meringues with her partner. Maybe was the love and the passion they used, but the output was very┬ánice and I’ve asked her for the recipe.

This recipe is incredibly easy, but I suggest you use a kitchen aid or similar to work the eggs or you won’t have a great result.

Carrot Loaf with almonds

Carrot cake is one of the best cakes in the world, but although it has fruit in it, it’s not that light! I’ve ┬átried to re arrange the recipe a bit to let you have a slice of your favourite cake every time you want (or need).

For the cake:

  • 225 of salted butter
  • 225 gr of sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 225 gr of self raising flour
  • 2 grated carrots

For the icing:

  • 50 gr of soft cheese
  • 50 gr of butter
  • 80 gr of icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoon of grated almonds

To bake this lovely easy cake you will need a loaf tin and an electric mixer.
