Ingredients

  • 1/8" square white cake layer
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup dulce de leche
  • 10 – 15 strawberries or other berries or fruit, medium-sized

Meringue

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions

  1. Cut the cake layer into 3 equal strips (It is quite tricky to cut the baked meringue, so it’s easier if you only have to cut one direction later). Spread dulce the leche over the cake strips. Wash strawberries and dry on a paper towel. Hull and halve strawberries and place on cake strips.
  2. Whisk egg white, salt and sugar in a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water until sugar is dissolved. Using the whisk attachment of the mixer beat 5 minutes on low, then 5 minutes on high speed (or use a hand whisk and a lot of arm-strength). Spread or pipe meringue over strawberries.
  3. Slightly brown the meringue with a kitchen torch or under the broiler of the oven (watch closely). Cut each strip twice for 9 bars.
