Individual Meringue Pavlova’s with Passion Fruit Curd

 

Makes: 5

Prep time: 15 minutes

Baking time: 45 minutes

 

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg whites

  • 210g caster sugar

  • 210g icing sugar

  • 10g cornflour

  • 1 jar of Vanilla Bean Patisserie Passion Fruit Curd

  • 10 fresh raspberries

  • 1 passion fruit

  • 5 sprigs basil

 

Method

  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set to one side.

  • Preheat your oven to 120°C/100°C fan.

  • Into a clean dry bowl add the room temperature fresh egg whites.

  • Whisk for 2 minutes on full speed until doubled in size and start adding the caster sugar.

  • Mix until thick.

  • At this point start adding the icing sugar and cornflour and mix on full speed again until thick and glossy.

  • Spoon the meringue into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle.

  • Stick the baking paper down to the tray with some of the mix and pipe 5 meringue nests on the lined tray.

  • If you don’t have a piping bag or nozzle, you can simply spoon 5 large meringue mounds onto the tray instead. Hollow out the centre to allow space for the curd later.

  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 45 minutes and then turn the oven off and allow to cool fully inside.

  • To serve, simply spoon some of the Vanilla Bean Patisserie, Passion Fruit Curd into the centre of the meringues and top with passion fruit wedges, raspberries and fresh basil.

  • Tuck in and enjoy.

 

Top Tip: Mix up the fillings by adding the lime or lemon curd and different fruit garnishes.
