For a bright pavlova recipe that will make the perfect pink pud, give this summer berry pavlova a go. It’s an easy meringue based dessert that will please all you guests, whether it’s a summer barbecue or posh dinner party.
HOW TO MAKE SUMMER BERRY PAVLOVA
- Preheat the oven to 150 C, 130 C fan, 300 F, gas 2. Put the egg whites into a large bowl. With an electric hand whisk, beat until stiff. Now add the sugar, a little at a time, whisking until stiff and glossy. You should be able to turn the bowl upside down and the meringue won’t move.
- Whisk in the cornflour and vinegar. Then use a little meringue to stick down some parchment paper on to a baking sheet. Using a spatula, dollop on the meringue into a circle, and make a dip in the centre.
- Dip a skewer into the pink colouring to make a colourful marble effect, and swirl it into the meringue.
- Put into the oven, turn the oven down to 130 C, 110 C fan, 250 F, gas ½ and bake for 45 minutes. Then turn off the oven and leave the meringue to cool inside for a few hours with the door closed.
- When you’re ready to fill the meringue, spoon over the cream, add the berries and dust with icing sugar. The meringue will sit happily in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours – it won’t be quite as crisp, but it will still taste fantastic.
