The meringue covers the plums like a golden cloud. It will end your meal with a smile.

Makes 2 servings

  • 4 plums, pit removed and sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
  • 2 large egg whites

Preheat oven to 350 F.

  1. Place plums in a microwaveable bowl and mix with 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Microwave on high 2 minutes. Transfer to ramekins or small dishes that are ovenproof (about 3-1/2 inches in diameter and 2 inches deep).
  2. Place the egg whites into the bowl of an electric mixer. Whip to a stiff peak. Add 1 tablespoon brown sugar and whip to stiff peak again.
  3. Spoon egg whites into ramekins, making sure the egg whites completely cover the plums. Place ramekins in oven for 5 minutes, or until meringue is golden. Serve immediately.
