Strawberry Meringue

If I have to whip up a quick meringue for a pavlova base, this is my “go to” recipe. The meringue base can be made up to 3 days in advance.

Macerating the strawberries softens the fruit, leaves you with a lovely syrup to drizzle and delightful gloss to the fruit.

350 g strawberries, hulled and halved

2 tbsp caster sugar

3  egg whites

125 g icing sugar plus 1 tbsp extra for cream, sifted

200 ml double cream

4 tbsp lemon or passion fruit curd

Put the strawberries in a bowl, sprinkle with caster sugar and set aside to macerate.

Preheat the oven to 140c Fan. Line a baking sheet with silicone sheet or baking parchment.

Put the egg whites and sifted icing sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Whisk to firm peaks, Spread half the mixture onto the silicone sheet or baking paper and spread to a circle of approximately 21cm diameter. Using a metal spoon, dollop a spoonful at a time around the edge of the circle to create an edge.

Bake in the oven for 50 minutes. Turn the oven off and leave in the oven with the door closed until completely cool.

Whip the cream with 1 tbsp icing sugar. Spread over the base of the meringue, top with strawberries and drizzle over any additional juices left in the bottom of the strawberry bowl.
