Christmas Pavlova

Recipe from What Katie Ate

Christmas Pavlova

Ingredients:For the meringue
¼ lemon
4 egg whites

200g caster sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
2½ tsp cornflour
For the filling420ml double cream
60ml crème de cacao blanc
1tsp vanilla bean extract
red berries


1. Pre heat the oven to 140°C/ 275F/Gas 1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

2. Rub the inside of a large mixing bowl with the lemon.

3. Whisk the egg whites in the bowl until completely frothy, then gradually pour in the sugar, whilst continuing to whisk, until soft peaks form. Add the vanilla extract and sift over the cornflour and whisk until well combined and firm peaks form.

4. Transfer the mixture onto the prepared baking tray and gently spread around into a fluffy disk with slightly raised edges, being careful not to deflate the meringue. Bake for an hour, turning the tray around after the first hour. Turn off the oven and leave the pavlova inside to dry out for a further hour.

5. For the filling, whisk the cream with the liquor and vanilla to a soft-peaking consistency. Spoon or pipe into the centre of the pavlova and top with the berries.
