Ingredients

  • 6 Coles Australian Free Range Egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 & 1/2 cups (330g) caster sugar
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 1 tbs icing sugar mixture
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 green kiwifruit, thinly sliced
  • 1 gold kiwifruit, thinly sliced
  • 3 thin slices peeled pineapple
  • 1/2 mango, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 2 passionfruit, halved

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 100°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Draw a 20cm circle on the paper and turn over.

STEP 2

Use an electric mixer to whisk the egg whites and cream of tartar in a clean, dry bowl until firm peaks form.

STEP 3

Gradually add the sugar, 1 tbs at a time, whisking well after each addition until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is thick and glossy. Add the cornflour. Stir until just combined.

STEP 4

Use a large metal spoon to spoon the mixture onto the lined tray. Use a palette knife to shape into a disc, using the circle as a guide. Smooth the side.

STEP 5

Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until the pavlova is dry to the touch. Turn oven off. Leave the pavlova in the oven, with the door ajar, for 2 hours to cool completely.

STEP 6

Use an electric mixer to whisk the cream, icing sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl until soft peaks form.

STEP 7

Place the pavlova on a serving plate. Top with the cream mixture. Use a star cutter to cut shapes from kiwifruit and pineapple. Arrange over the cream mixture with the mango. Drizzle with passionfruit pulp. Serve immediately.
