Pavlova! Its not meringue but its like meringue. So, what's a Pavlova? Am going to give you a recipe and i want you to follow the simple steps on the method on how to make a Pavlova.
For the chocolate meringue base
6 Egg whites
3tsp Cocoa powder
1tsp Red wine vinegar
50g Dark chopped chocolate
For the topping
350ml Double cream
Sorry, just had to torment your all!
1, Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
Beat the egg whites until satiny peaks form,
and then beat in the sugar a spoonful at a time until the meringue is stiff and
shiny. Sprinkle over the cocoa and vinegar, and the chopped chocolate.
2, Gently fold everything until the cocoa is
thoroughly mixed in. Scoop on to a baking sheet in a fat circle, smoothing the
sides and top. Place in the oven, then immediately turn the temperature down to
150°C/gas mark 2 and cook for 45 mins.
3, When it's ready it should look crisp
around the edges and on the sides and be dry on top, but when you prod the
centre you should feel a bit softer than the sides. Turn off the oven and open
the door slightly, and let the chocolate meringue disc cool completely.
4, Whisk the cream till thick but still soft
and pile it on top of the meringue, then scatter over the raspberries. Coarsely
grate the chocolate so that you get curls rather than rubble, as you don't want
the raspberries. Use to make a lot of Pavlova at my last employer's.
Told you, it was easy!
