I need you to take my hand and trust me here, okay?
The reason that I called these Surprise Caramel Meringues is because I knew you would run a mile if you read Vegemite Caramel Meringues
WHAT? I hear you screech. Vegemite?!?! Caramel?!?!
Uh huh. It’s weird, for sure, but so was the first time someone added salt to caramel, or made miso caramel
Much like these two, Vegemite Caramel has a salty, umami flavour that you just can’t quite put your finger on and keeps you coming back for just one more try
My testers have all reacted in horror – except for the ones who tried it without knowing it was vegemite.
THOSE testers loved it and went back for more
Adding a thin ribbon to these wattleseed meringues lets you gently introduce it to taste buds
And hey, wattleseed, vegemite and pavlova – is this the most Aussie dessert ever?
I’d really love to know if you get brave enough to try it
