- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup castor sugar
- 2/3 cup mascarpone cheese
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 400g tin mixed berries
- Drain most of the liquid from the mixed berries and place the berries in a saucepan. Add two tablespoons of the castor sugar and simmer, stirring occasionally, for ten minutes. Turn off heat and allow to cool. Use a stick blender to partially puree the berries, allowing some small lumps.
- In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining castor sugar and continue beating until dissolved. The mixture should be thick and glossy.
- In another bowl, gently whisk the mascarpone cheese and vanilla until just combined. Add egg white mixture and fold through until the two mixtures are evenly combined. Add the berry mixture and swirl through. Serve chilled with extra berries.
