Beat the condensed milk with the yolks, beating well to a smooth mixture. Pour the mixture over the apples 3/4 up the sides of the ramekins
5
Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the meringue

Beat the egg whites in a clean bowl of a food mixer and beat for 5 minutes until they are nicely fluffy and stiff peaks have formed. Now slowly add the 3 tablespoons of sugar and mix until incorporated and thickened
