    I posted a recipe some time ago for a hazelnut roularde is that the one you're looking for? -

    Sugar free meringues sounds ike a contradiction in terms. If they have no sugar, they aren't meringues!

    at the risk of sounding like a complete noob!
    after finding the recipe for these sugar free meringues, can I ask what type of vinegar to use in this recipe?
    can't wait to try them out Mmmmmm....... :crazy:

    Technically it isn't a meringue it's a roulade -it is meant to be soft and marshmallowy not dry and crunchy like a traditional meringue, as a trained chef and baker I agree replacing sugar with sweetener will never give the optimum results but in this recipe it is pretty close,

    Moonfruit, I use apple cider vinegar simply because that what I use for other recipes but ordinary white vinegar is fine - just don't use the chip shop stuff! :lol: just a note for anyone don't be tempted to use lemon juice thinking it is acidic like vinegar - it has the complete opposite effect and breaks the egg whites down into water! You can add half a teaspoon of cream of tartar as well if you like - this will stabilise the whites also

    Enjoy :D

    You can easily make sugar free meringues using Spenda as a sugar substitute. I find using about 2/3 Splenda and 1/3 Xylitol makes them very well. I do this because Xylitol is so expensive. I gives good texture. I grind it down to caster sugar texture.
