Strawberry, Passionfruit Pavlova

Need I say no more about Miss E lovely dessert??.....



To make pavlova....
  • 4 egg white
  • 3/4 cup of caster sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar or 1 teaspoon of white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon of cornflour
Pre heat the oven to 180C. Draw a circle on a baking paper with a pencil. Turn paper over.
In a mixer, beat the egg whites until fluffy, add cream of tartar(if using otherwise add the vinegar when you are about to add cornflour)). Add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time by the count of every 30 seconds... until sugar dissolves. Keep on beating the egg white until stiff and glossy...
Spread the mix onto the circle.. and try to heave the side up....to resemble a 'wall'. Put in the oven and lower the oven temperature to 120C and bake for approximately...1hour 20 minutes. The pavlova should be dry to touch once its ready. Leave it to cool completely in the oven.
Cream: 300ml whipping cream and 1 tablespoon of caster sugar....whip until peak....
Spread the cream on the pavlova nest.... decorate with strawberries and drizzle with passionfuit pulp...
