Ingredients

Meringue

  • 4 Egg Whites (Free-Range and large)
  • 200g Golden Caster Sugar
  • Pinch Salt

 

Topping

  • 300-400ml Double Cream – whipped
  • Fresh Fruits (whatever you fancy)
  • I used 2 Ripe Nectarines and a couple of handfuls ripe fresh Cherries (de- stoned)
  • Optional – a little fruits puree (not on mine)
  • Drizzle Honey
  • Mint leaves (yes I know mine are basil in the pic)
  • Icing Sugar – for dusting

Preparation Method

  1. Pre-heat Oven 150C/300F/Gas2
  2. Line a largish Baking Tray – you can make your Pavlova any shape you like!
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites using a spotlessly clean bowl for a few minutes unit the egg white are stiff
  4. Gradually add the sugar & salt whilst the mixer is running and then whip on high speed for 7 minutes or so.
  5. The meringue should not be gritty, if it is keep mixing
  6. Spoon the meringue into the desired shape onto the lined baking tray, try to make the edges a little thicker than the middle
  7. Bake in the pre-heated oven for minimum 1 hour, max 1 hour 15 mins. Remove from the oven and leave to cool, should be golden brown and a little cracked but soft (I leave mine overnight and then fill in the morning)
  8. When you are ready to construct whip your cream until thick and spoon on meringue
  9. If you want a little fruit puree on the Pavlova add now
  10. Decorate with fresh fruits and drizzle in honey
  11. Finally finish with Mint leaves and a sprinkle of Icing Sugar
  12. Sit back, relax and tuck in ……. Cx
