Ingredients

 

  • 6 egg whites, at room temperature
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 ½ cups caster sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cornflour
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 250g fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 250g fresh blueberries
  • 4 fresh passionfruit, pulp removed
  • Lirah Caramelised Cranberry Balsamic, to serve

 

Method

 

  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Line a baking tray with non-stick paper.
  2. Use an electric mixer to whisk egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Add sugar ½ a cup at a time, whisking for 1 minute after each addition. Once all the sugar has been added, continue to whisk on high for 3 minutes.
  3. Combine the cornflour, vinegar and vanilla essence in a small jug. Add to the whipped egg whites and whisk until just combined.
  4. Use a spatula to gently spread the meringue onto your tray in an oval shape. Smooth the surface and sides. Reduce the oven temperature to 120 degrees and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, until the pavlova is dry to touch. Turn off the oven and leave the pavlova inside to cool completely.
  5. When pavlova is cool whip cream until thick. Spread over pavlova and arrange fresh fruit over the top.
  6. Cut into slices and serve drizzled with Lirah Caramelised Cranberry Balsamic for a festive twist!
