If you’re going to get a disease, I’ve decided that Celiac disease is the one to get! No drugs, no operations – just good food! How lucky can you get?

Fruit Cloud

250g berries – chopped up a bit if large
2 egg whites

1 cup sugar

Have all your ingredients at room temperature – it helps the mixture fluff up.
Put everything in a bowl and beat till the sugar has dissolved. This will take about 8 minutes.

The Fruit Cloud delicious, soft, sweet and melty. Perfect served with extra berries and meringues.
