A vibrant addition to any table anytime. How good do those fresh berries look on that crispy pavlova?


Ingredients (makes 12 Very Berry Mini Pavs)

  • 6 Egg Whites (be really careful there is no yolk at all in the whites)
  • 270g Caster Sugar
  • 2 tsp Cornflour
  • 1 tsp White Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract or Essence
  • 300ml Thickened Cream
  • 1 punnet Blueberries
  • 1 punnet Blackberries
  • 1 punnet Raspberries

Method

  1. Use an electric mixer to beat egg whites in a very dry, clean mixing bowl (not metal) until soft peaks form.
  2. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition, until meringue is thick, shiny and the sugar has fully dissolved.
  3. Add cornflour, vinegar and vanilla and whisk until just combined.
  4. Place spoonfuls of meringue onto a foil or baking paper lined tray. Keep the dollops quite small as they will spread slightly when cooking.
  5. Bake in oven for 11/2 hours or until pavlovas are dry to the touch. Turn off oven. Leave pavlova in oven with the door ajar to cool completely.
  6. When completely cold, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of berries.
  7. If you like the idea of a drizzle of berry coulis, simply blend a few together and then spoon over the other berries. Or you could add a teaspoon of hot water to some raspberry jam to make a drizzle. Or you could really cheat and use a little strawberry or raspberry topping (!)
  8. Add a few little sprigs of micro herbs for colour and voila!

  • I love pavlovas but too tricky for me. Never seem to work out so I cheat and buy them ready made. They do look very enticing though
