I made it this morning too and I had the same result, was more like a sponge cake without the flour and air lol

Some one plz rescue my meringues, I was hoping for light crispy nests!!

make sure your bowl is very clean.Dont want to sound rude but if there is any grease(even egg yolk in the mix)it will kill your meringue.
Make sure oven is preheated.
Beat to stiff peaks then fold in sweetener with metal spoon-dont use whisk or you will beat the air out of it.
Never open oven during cooking to check it.
Leave to cool in oven with door closed before removing.
Hope thats of some use and that it doesnt sound patronising.xx

Thank you - I will give this a try. I did whisk the sweetner into the egg whites and I did open the oven door a couple of times to check on it ! Really would like crispy meringues :0)
