The Edmonds Recipe Challenge #2 - Louise Cake I thought I had had another fail, but the girls at work loved it - yay!! I didn't quite beat the eggs whites for long enough and as I added the sugar & coconut I knew I was being a bit premature, but by then it was too late! The meringue mixture should have been more robust, but ended up looking a little bit sad, oh well! :( I love louise cake. Especially the coconut meringue topping (when its done right!). Next time Im going to beat the eggs for longer plus double the meringue recipe, and then it will be perfect.
