Mango meringue pie (gluten,- and sugar free!)

EN

It may be still winter and cold, but that doesn't stop me from baking pies that remind me of the sunshine and warm thoughts of the Summer.

Behold the mango meringue pie!

Mango is definitely one of my favourite summer fruit as well. And since I'm already familiar with the lemon meringue pie, I wanted to be experimental with frozen mango cubes.

And guess what, frozen mango cubes make a great mango curd and filling for pies! And here today I'm happily sharing with you my mango meringue pie recipe. Gluten,- sugar-free possible! Lactose-free too if you only use plant-based butter.

Het mag dan nog winter en koud zijn, maar dat weerhoudt me er niet van om taarten te bakken die me doen denken aan zonneschijn en de zomer.

Zie de mango-meringuetaart!

Mango is absoluut een van mijn favoriete zomerfruit. Ik ben al bekend met de citroenschuimtaart, ik wilde dus experimenteren met bevroren mangoblokjes.

En raad eens, bevroren mangoblokjes maken goede jam/vulling voor taarten! Vandaag deel ik ook met trots mijn recept de mango-meringuetaart met jullie. Gluten, - suikervrij mogelijk! Ook lactosevrij als je plantaardige boter gebruikt.

Peaks Free From
To make it free from gluten I`ve used this brand but any kind of brand with gluten free flour is fine! Yes, even the ones that are meant for bread baking too! Trust me, it works!
The second time making the mango meringue pie, I`ve added 2 tablespoon (tbsp) rolled oats for extra fibre to my pie crust.
crust 🗹
blitz!
mix!
set!
sieve!
And lastly pour the silky smooth filling into the prebaked pie crust.
200°C/392°F and 10 min. later
Finished!
I`ve made an oval shaped mango meringue pie and since I`ve got dough and some filling left I`ve made a small square version.
The Steps
making the crust
1. Combine (gluten-free) flour and salt with the butter by rubbing it together to form a texture of wet sand. Add the sugar and finally the egg and form and knead into a dough.
2. Flatten the dough and wrap it in cling foil. Let it rest in the fridge for 15 min. Overnight is ok.
3. Preheat oven to 180C/356F. Dust the surface with a bit of flour and roll your dough with a rolling pin out to a 0,5mm thickness.
4. Place the dough in a 20-21 cm ⌀ tart/cake tin or springform and press the dough well. I like to place baking paper underneath to make taking out the pie crust easier. Create steam holes by poking the bottom of the pie with a fork.
5. Place a baking paper on top of the pie crust dough and fill it with baking beans for blind bake. Bake for roughly 18 min. in the oven and let it cool down after.

making the filling
1. Puree the mango cubes first in the blender.
2. Put all the ingredients except the butter in a large saucepan. Use a whisk and beat and mix everything together with a bit.
3. Then turn the heat on medium heat and stir constantly until thickens for 5 min.
4. Remove from heat and add the butter and stir until the butter has melted. Also preheat the oven to 200C/392F degrees.
5. Then run the filling through a sieve for a smooth texture, very important don`t skip this step!
6. Then pour the filling in the prebaked and cooled down pie crust shell and bake in the oven for 10 min to let the filling set.

making meringue
1. While the pie is baking in the oven, we make the meringue. Add the egg whites in a clean (so no oily stains) bowl.
2. Beat the egg whites and add the sugar (or stevia) in three additional steps until medium to stiff glossy peaks.
3. Meanwhile, the pie should be done baking and it`s warm. Place the meringue on the warm pie. You can pipe the meringue through a piping bag with cute nozzles. Let the mango meringue pie rest and set first before cutting.
