Pavlova

Ingredients

  • 4 egg-whites
  • ¾ cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 300ml carton cream, whipped
  • 250g punnet strawberries,
  • hulled, sliced
  • 125g punnet blueberries
  • 125g punnet raspberries
  • 4 passionfruit, halved

Preparation method

  1. Preheat oven to slow, 150°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.

  2. Gradually add sugar, one tablespoon at a time, beating until sugar dissolves and foam is stiff, thick and glossy. Beat in lemon juice and vanilla extract.

  3. Spoon mixture onto prepared tray to form a round, with a slight recess in the middle.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Reduce oven to very slow, 120°C, and bake for
    a further 45 minutes. Turn off oven. Allow to cool, with the door ajar, to fully dry out.

  5. To serve, top with cream and berries. Drizzle with passionfruit just before serving.


TOP TIP
  • You can use a combination of prawns and scallops if you like.
  • For a low-fat version, use light evaporated milk. It will need a little thickening with cornflour.
