Raspberry marshmallow
  • 125 gram frozen raspberries, thawed

Raspberry marshmallow
  • 1
    Grease and line base and sides of a 30 x 20cm (base measurement) slice pan with baking paper, extending paper at long sides for handles. Process raspberries and icing sugar in a small food processor until smooth. Strain mixture through a fine sieve; discard seeds. Set aside.
  • 2
    Sprinkle gelatine over 1/2 cup boiling water in a heatproof jug; stir to dissolve. Set aside.
  • 3
    Place sugar, 1/2 cup water and golden syrup in a heavy-based saucepan over moderate heat. Cook and stir for 1 minute or until dissolves. Bring to the boil. Boil, without stirring, for 8 minutes or until syrup reaches 120°C on a candy thermometer and reaches hard-boil stage (when a small amount dropped into a glass of cold water holds its shape). Remove from heat. Whisk gelatine mixture into syrup.

    Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites in a clean dry heatproof bowl until soft peaks form. Beat in essence. Gradually beat hot syrup into egg white in a thin steady stream until mixture becomes light and fluffy and begins to cool. Pour into prepared pan; level surface.
