Palm Sugar Meringues
  • 3 egg whites
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 50g palm sugar, grated or brown sugar
  • 10g cornflour
  • 5g white vinegar
Kaffir Lime Syrup
  • 220g caster sugar
  • 80ml water
  • 90ml lime juice
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves, shredded
  • 50ml orange juice
  • 20g mint leaves
For Serving
  • 2-3 yellow peaches, stones removed and cut into wedges
  • 200ml thickened cream (35% milk fat), whipped
  • 200ml sour cream or natural yoghurt
  • shredded kaffir lime leaves, to garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C. Draw 3cm circles on a sheet of baking paper and place on a baking tray.
  2. Whisk the egg white and a pinch of salt with an electric beater until firm peaks form. Add sugar one tablespoon at a time, beating until sugar has dissolved between each addition. Fold in cornflour and vinegar. Spoon mixture onto the circles and flatten the top slightly with the back of a spoon.
  3. Place meringues into the oven and reduce temperature to 100°C. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until dry and crisp. Turn off heat and cool completely in the oven.
  4. Meanwhile, for kaffir lime syrup, spread the sugar over the base of a large heavy based frying pan and cook over low heat, swirling and tilting the pan as required, until the sugar has melted and turned to a golden dark caramel. Remove from heat and add water (be careful - it will spit). Add remaining ingredients and cool completely. Strain and discard mint and lime leaves. Refrigerate until required.
  5. Place the peach wedges on a barbecue or grill and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until charred. Cool.
  6. Gently mix together the whipped cream and sour cream. Spoon evenly over meringue bases, top with peach wedges, drizzle with kaffir lime syrup and extra shredded kaffir lime leaves.
