The idea of making a plum pie with meringue was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Olga Holovina (olha.holovina).

3. Beat again until smooth and creamy. Cover the mold with parchment and spread the dough.

4. Spread it evenly and put the plum halves on top. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Bake for 40 minutes at 180 degrees.

5. Let the cake cool completely. Next, prepare the meringue. Separate the yolks from the whites. Do this very carefully, if you get even a drop of yolk, the whites will not whip. Use dry utensils, otherwise the whites will not whip up either.
