Cherry Pavlova Recipe

Cherry Pavlova

Ingredients

  • 6 large egg whites
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 50g finely chopped dark chocolate
  • 284ml pot double cream
  • 3 tbsp icing sugar
  • ½ 600g jar stoned cherry compote (I used Bonne Maman)
  • fresh cherries, to serve

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 140C/fan 120C/gas 1. Whisk the egg whites just until they form stiff peaks. Gradually whisk in the sugar, a couple of tbsp at a time, making sure you whisk really well between each addition. When all the sugar has been added, keep whisking for a couple of mins until the mixture is really thick and glossy and looks a little like shaving foam. Carefully stir in the cornflour, vinegar, cocoa powder and chocolate with a large metal spoon, just until incorporated.
  2. Tear off a sheet of baking parchment and use to cover a baking sheet. Mark a 25cm circle on the paper. Spoon over the meringue mixture, swirling into the circle, building up the sides a little, ready to keep the filling in. Cook for 1½ hrs. Leave to cool.
  3. When ready to serve, whip the double cream and icing sugar together in a big bowl until soft peaks form. Spoon the cherry compote over the meringue, dollop over the cream, then swirl around. Arrange a few of the fresh cherries on top to finish.
