Salzburger Nockerln With Preserves

READY IN: 23mins




  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
  • Place four 9" oval au gratin dishes (or one large oval glass/ceramic lasagna dish) on a baking sheet.
  • In each small dish place 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon preserves. (If you are using a lasagna pan, smear the bottom with the butter and then with preserves.).
  • Combine egg whites, vanilla sugar, and lemon zest in a large metal bowl. Beat with an electric hand mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Beat egg yolks with granulated sugar. Gently fold the egg yolks and flour into the meringue. Use a spatula to place three large mounds of the mixture into each au gratin dish. Lightly smooth the surface of each peak and valley.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, until puffed and golden.
  • Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve immediately.
