This almond meringue recipe can be used for an almond gateau filled with almond butter cream.



For 6 - 8 :


  • 150g egg white(5medium)
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 125g ground almonds
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 25g plain flour
  • 2 baking trays
  • baking parchment
  • flan ring 20cm in diameter












Preparation     - 35 mins
Cooking time   - 30 mins


  • For a better flavour, dry-toast the ground almonds in a pan, stirring with a spatula to prevent them from burning.
  • Prepare the ingredients :  set aside the caster sugar and mix together the almonds, flour and icing sugar in a bowl.
  • Line the baking trays with baking parchment, and, with a pencil, draw the outlines of 3 20cm circles, 2 on one tray and 1 on the other.
  • Heat the oven to 140°.
  • Using either an electric whisk or a food mixer, beat the egg whites for 2-3 mins.  As soon as they become frothy, add half of the caster sugar, continuing to beat all the time. After 4-5 mins add the remaining half of the sugar and beat for a further 4-5 mins, increasing the speed to maximum.  The meringue will become very thick.
  • Using a spatula, fold in the almond mixture in two lots, lifting and turning it to ensure it is well amalgamated into the meringue.
  • {mosimage}Spoon the mixture onto the 3 prepared circles, allowing it to overlap the edges slightly, so that you can trim them back when they’re cooked.  You may need to even the surface with a spatula.  Alternatively you can use a 10mm icing nozzle to pipe a spiral starting at the outside edge.  This will give you a more regular surface so there’s no need to smooth over afterwards.
  • Cook for 25-30mins.  The cake won’t colour very much; the surface should be hard and the inside just cooked.
  • Leave to cool on the tray.
  • {mosimage}Trimming : 
    Take each disc carefully off the tray and peel off the baking parchment.  Replace in the tray and, using the flan ring as a guide, trim each one to a circle of 20cm.
  • This cake base is very easy to freeze : simply freeze in a plastic container or freezer bag with a cardboard base to stop it breaking.




Variation:  Instead of making circles, form the mix into langue de chat or boudoir biscuit .shapes which you can use for an Almond Charlotte.
