Chocolate Meringue Cookies

This is my second attempt in baking. Although I enjoy baking, I don't really eat much. Mostly, the end products ended up in my kids' tummy.

I look forward to every Saturdays in hope that I would be able to find time to bake. Since I don't cook on Saturdays now as I need to bring my son out for class at three, I have a couple of hours free when my daughter takes her afternoon nap. I need more practice otherwise my baking results will forever looks not quite right somewhere.

Anyway, this is any simple recipe I found in the mini cookbook my husband bought for me. Just right for a beginner baker like me. Very little ingredients needed and just a few steps to follow (and yet I still have this not quite right result. :p).


  • 90g Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 250g Confectioners' Sugar aka Icing Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cocoa Powder (optional)
How to do it:

  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder can cocoa powder together.
  3. Beat egg whites and beat well.
  4. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat well.
  5. Fold in flour mixture to form batter.
  6. Spoon batter onto greased baking tray.
  7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
  8. Loosen immediately from tray so the cookies don't stick.
