Pavlova - Recipe


Serves: 6


Ingredients:

    Strawberry Syrup:
  • 1 cup (230 g) strawberries, quartered
  • 1 cup (230 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) water

  • Meringues:
  • 4 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 cup (235 g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 g) cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) lemon juice

  • Garnish:
  • Whipped Cream
  • 6 strawberries halved
  • Mint sprigs
  • 6 chocolate cigarettes, purchased
  • 1-ounce (30 g) pistachio, chopped
  • 18 wild strawberries

Directions:

  • Preheat oven 300 degrees F or 150 degrees C
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients for the strawberry syrup and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until berries are soft and syrup is thickened.
  • Remove from heat and strain through a fine strainer into a clean container. Let cool, cover and refrigerate.
  • Meanwhile, to make meringues, place egg whites in a stainless steel or glass bowl and using, a hand-held mixer beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar a little at a time until stiff peaks form. Fold in cornstarch and lemon juice.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, create balls and delicately transfer on a pre-greased baking sheet. Gently tap the top of each meringue to create a flat surface.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool on a wire rack.
  • To serve, place each meringue on a chilled dessert plate. Top with a dollop of whipped cream, a couple half strawberries, a mint sprig and a chocolate cigarette.
  • Finish with a drizzle of strawberry syrup. Sprinkle with pistachio and garnish with wild strawberries.
