Summer is fast approaching and that means it’s well and truly patio season. We believe that patios are a place where summer memories are made, and what brings people together more than some sweet treats? Invite your friends over to enjoy this easy and insanely delicious pavlova recipe which is topped with juicy mango, making it even more ideal for the Queensland summer months:
The Ingredients You’ll Need…
4 egg whites
½ teaspoon of vanilla
1 ¼ cups caster sugar
1 teaspoon of vinegar
1 tablespoon of cornflour
1 tablespoon of hot water
300ml thickened cream
Here’s how you bake it
Preheat your oven to 140° Celsius (120° for a fan-forced oven)
Put all of the pavlova ingredients into a stand mixer, saving the tablespoon of hot water for last
Using high speed, whisk the mixture for 10 minutes. After this step, the mixture should be shiny and stiff. Dip a fork into the mixture and take it out – if it holds the point from where the fork exited, you’ve got a perfect consistency and your mixture is now a meringue.
Line a large baking tray with baking paper and scoop your meringue into the centre. Use the back of your spoon to make little nest-like indents in the mixture.
Insert your meringue into your preheated oven on the middle shelf. Bake for 1.5 hours then allow it to cool in the oven afterwards. Your pavlova should now be crunchy on the outside and a little bit gooey on the inside.
Lightly whip your thickened cream then spread it across the top of your pavlova
Add your mango slices, blueberries and passionfruit
Enjoy with friends!
- If you would like to make this recipe during winter and you’re struggling to get your hands on some of the fruit, you can simply use tinned passionfruit and mango, or use beautiful Australian grown blueberries and strawberries.
- If you would like to enjoy your pavlova with a refreshing drink, pair it with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Moscato for the perfect dessert and drink combo.
