Ingredients for the passion fruit sauce
150 gm passion fruit flesh
50 gm granulated sugar
20 gm water
2 gm cornflour
To make the Passion Fruit Sauce, in a small saucepan, place the passion fruit flesh, water, sugar and cornflour, well mixed. Cook over a low heat until the sugar dissolved. Bring the sauce to the boil, stirring occasionally, then cover the pan and remove from the heat. Let cool and chill for 1-2 hours until cold.
150ml eggwhite (approximately 4 eggs)
1 cup (220g) caster (superfine) sugar
2 tbsp cornflour (cornstarch), sifted
2 tsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (if u wish to have a white Pavlova .. omit vanilla ok)
1 cup (250ml) single (pouring) cream
1/2 cup passionfruit pulp (approximately 4 passionfruit)
250g strawberries, hulled and halved
( used strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and mangoes)
Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F). Place the eggwhite in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, whisking well, until the mixture is stiff and glossy.
Add the cornflour and vinegar and whisk until just combined. Shape the mixture into an 18cm round on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Reduce oven to 120°C (250°F) and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes. Turn the oven off and allow the pavlova to cool completely in the oven. Whisk the cream until soft peaks form. Spread over the Pavlova, top with passionfruit and strawberries and serve immediately. Serves 8–10.
