I have “met” so many great and talented food bloggers on Twitter and Ken of Hungry Rabbit is one of them. Ken is one of the sweetest guys on Twitter; he is always so gentle and kind to me. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Ken is a very talented baker. As you all know, I am a hopeless case when it comes to baking, so I invited Ken to share a holiday baking recipe with us. Check out his decadent marbled meringue recipe below. If you love baking, you ought to check out his blog Hungry Rabbit (warning: major drool alert!). And Ken, happy holidays and enjoy your vacation in Penang!! I can’t wait to hear all about it when you come back.
Greetings everyone, I’m Ken from Hungry Rabbit. As someone who started blogging not so long ago, I was excited when Bee asked me to write a guest post for Rasa Malaysia. She’s been most generous with her wealth of knowledge and blogging experience. I hope this post will encourage you to bake something to share during the holiday season.
December is a time for celebration, filled with such holidays as Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanza. Even if you don’t observe them, it’s still the time of year for friends and family to gather over meals. That’s exactly what I have been doing for the last few weeks–plus non-stop baking of sweet treats that I pack up to bring to these gatherings…
Here’s one simple confection. It’s not exactly a holiday theme dessert but the appearance and texture of the airy meringue are great for celebrating. The streaks of chocolate through the meringue not only give it a festive
appearance but also a contrast in texture. Bits of chocolate provide a soft creaminess, while the meringue shell gives the crispiness.
Marbled Meringues are simple to make and travel well, so you can take these cloud-like morsels to any gathering.
Happy Holidays and may 2011 brings you good health, sweet treats and delicious dreams.
