Tea on Tuesday: Strawberry Schaum Torte

* 8 egg whites
* 1 tablespoon white vinegar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 2 cups sugar
* 3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
* 1-1/2 cups whipped cream

Place egg whites in the bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Beat the egg whites, vinegar, vanilla and salt on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.

Spread into a greased 10-in. springform pan. Bake at 300° for 50-60 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool (meringue will fall).

Serve with strawberries and whipped cream. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

Yield: 12 servings.

This looks sooo light and fluffy. I was thinking strawberrys too. Last year (for Valentines) there were large strawberrys everywhere! I could even find stemmed ones for dipping. This year it was slim pickins! Did you have any difficulty in finding them?
