Baked Bramley Apple Snow


Serves 6-8
3 Bramley apples, cored and quartered
3 large free range egg whites
60g icing sugar, or to taste

Place the apple quarters in a saucepan, and add just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over a medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until the apples are totally soft – about 5-10 minutes. Drain off the liquid, and pass the apples through a sieve into a bowl (alternatively, peel them before boiling and puree in a food processor).

Whip the egg whites until foamy, then begin adding the sugar a little at a time, beating until the whites are firm and shiny. With the mixer on high speed, gradually begin adding the apple puree, a few spoonfuls at a time. The mixture will transform from foamy to dense and nearly grow out of the bowl. Once all the puree has been added, taste the "snow" and add more sugar if required.

Serve a large dollop of the apple snow set on a small pool of custard or cream, or serve on its own with biscuits.
