Triple Berry Meringue Cake
This easy Triple Berry Meringue Cake recipe features a layer of light and airy sponge cake, triple berry filling, and a dreamy French meringue topping. Sponge cake is a smart shortcut ingredient that makes this recipe super fast and easy. When I’m in the mood, I enjoy making it myself with this easy recipe for Italian sponge cake. However, it tastes great with store-bought sponge cake too.
First, prepare the berry filling. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the berries, sugar, lemon juice, water, and cornstarch. Bring to a simmer and cook, swirling occasionally, until thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a shallow bowl. Cool completely. Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt, cream of tartar, and confectioners’ sugar until stiff peaks form, 3 to 4 minutes. Line a springform cake pan with parchment paper so that there is ample overhang. Place the prepared or store-bought sponge cake on the bottom. Spoon the berry filling onto the cake. Top with the meringue and bake for 12 to 15 minutes until golden and perfect. Cool completely before serving. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
