Christmas Berry Pavlova

Christmas Berry Pavlova

 Ingredients:

4 egg whites

1 cup caster sugar

1 teaspoon cornflour

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

300ml cream

250g strawberries

125g raspberries

125g blueberries

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 120°C or 100°C fan forced and grease a large oven tray or pizza tray. On a sheet of baking paper, use a plate as a guide to draw a 23cm circle, then a 13cm circle inside it. Place the paper on the tray, pencil side down.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  3. Add sugar, a spoonful at a time, beating until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  4. Add cornflour and vanilla and beat until just combined.
  5. Using the pencil lines on the baking paper as a guide, scoop large spoonful’s of meringue onto the tray to form a wreath shape.
  6. Use the back of a spoon to make an indentation in the top of the meringue, all the way around the centre.
  7. Bake for 1 ½ hours, then turn off oven, prop the door open slightly and leave to cool completely.
  8. To serve, carefully run a large knife between the pavlova and the paper to loosen it, then slide onto a serving plate. Whip the cream to soft peaks and spoon over the top of the pavlova. Top with the berries.
