Strawberries and Raspberries

Pavlova

Ingredients

2 egg whites

Double the weight of sugar to egg whites

50g chocolate

A handful of strawberries

A handful of raspberries

200g double cream

Method

Preheat the oven to 110c.

Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks with an electric hand whisk or a free standing mixer.

When the egg whites reach stiff peaks keep mixing and start adding the sugar 1 teaspoon at a time, make sure the sugar is well mixed in before adding the next addition.

The meringue is ready when all of the sugar has been added and your egg whites are back to stiff peaks with a glossy shine to them.

Tip the mixture on to a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper and spread in to a rough circle. You don’t want to make it too thin and it doesn’t have to be neat. Using the back of a spatula you can gently dip it in to the meringue mixture and pull it out again to create some peaks.

Put your meringue in the oven for around 2 hours. The meringue is cooked when the top is crisp and the bottom peels easily off of the baking paper.

Allow the meringue to cool completely.

Whisk the cream until it is a nice thick consistency and place on top of the completely cooled meringue. Again it doesn’t have to be overly neat!

Wash your berries and cut any large berries in to chunks, then sprinkle over the top.

Finally roughly chop the chocolate and scatter over the top of your pavlova!
