This mouth-watering take on the classic pavlova is sure to be a hit. Easy to make and topped with kiwi and passion fruit it is a real show-stopper of a dessert!

Serves: 8 – 10 people:

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Recipe suitable for: Vegetarians

What you will need:

6 egg whites

340g caster sugar

1 tbsp cornflour

1 tsp white wine vinegar

1 tsp vanilla extract

300ml whipping cream

1 tbsp icing sugar

4 – 5 Zespri SunGold kiwis

2 passion fruit

What to do:

 Preheat the oven to 120°c. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Using an electric mixer, beat the egg-whites in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Add the caster sugar a spoonful at a time, beating all the while and continue to beat until all the sugar has dissolved and you have a stiff glossy meringue.  Add the cornflour, vinegar and vanilla and beat for 1 minute more.

Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet into a circle about the size of a small dinner plate, use a palette knife to shape it and working from top to bottom create ridges up the sides.

Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until firm. Allow to cool completely in the oven with the heat turned off. You can leave the door ajar if you are in a hurry.

Peel and slice the kiwis and halve the passionfruit.

Using an electric mixer, beat the cream and icing sugar until soft peaks form. Place the pavlova on a plate. Spread with the cream mixture. Top with kiwi slices and passionfruit pulp. Serve.
