Lately we have been going low-carb. But I have a SUPER sweet tooth, so this has been very difficult. After 2 weeks I needed SOMETHING sweet. The latest Martha Stuart magazine had some great recipes in it and with a little modification, are very low carb. I attempted to make this beautiful meringue cake.
I put it in the oven and started on the syrup.
I took it out of the oven and this is what it looked like.
Oops. I think a couple things went wrong. First I used one of those rubbery bunt pans and put it in a water bath. I should have skipped the water bath using that pan. The second, I think I actually over mixed the meringue. It had stiff glossy peaks but it had only been about a minute and the instructions said 3-4 minutes. Lastly, I used splenda instead of sugar (no carbs in splenda).
We did try it then chuncked it in the trash. Maybe next time.
