2 Place egg whites into an electric mixer and beat on medium high speed until stiff peaks form
3 Gradually add sugar, one tablespoon at a time, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is thick and glossy
4 Gently fold in the cornflour and vinegar
5 Divide mixture evenly between trays and spread with the back of a spoon until they’re an even thickness
6 Bake for 50 minutes, swapping trays half way, until mixture is dry and crisp
7 Turn the oven off but leave meringues there for one hour, or until completely cooled
8 Combine berries in a large mixing bowl
9 Beat cream with electric beaters to soft peaks
10 Place one of the meringue discs onto serving plate and spread with one third of the cream
11 Scatter one third of the berries on top of the cream and place remaining meringue on top
