- Lemon juice
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup sugar (95 g)
- 3 boxes of blackberries (see Tips)
Using a clean bowl and whisk that have been wiped with lemon juice and dried off, whip the egg whites stiff (if you turn the bowl on its side, the egg whites should not move). Now add the sugar and 5 tbsp of the blackberry sauce. Continue to whip until combined.
Serve the Blackberry Bluff in small cups or bowls with the remaining blackberries and a drizzle of the remaining blackberry sauce.
- In the Netherlands blackberries are sold in standard containers of 150 grams (5,29 oz).
- Because this recipe uses raw egg whites, it is not suitable for the immunologically challenged (pregnant women, very young children or the aged). Always use fresh organic eggs and serve immediately.
- Seeing that Haagse bluf doesn't keep well, use any you don't use up immediately to make meringues. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, scoop or pipe small amounts of the Haagse Bluf onto the paper and bake at 220 degrees F (approx 100 degrees C) for a few hours until they feel dry, hard and crisp to the touch and then leave in the oven to cool. These meringues are good as is, or crumbled over fruit or other desserts.
- Try 'Hague bluff' with strawberries or redcurrants instead of the blackberries.
