Its Friday- time to forget the beach diet plan and allow yourself a bit of indulgence. After all, you have had a very tough week and you deserve it, you really do!
This is a nice twist on a traditional pavlova and certainly looks impressive when it is served. It involves a little bit of fiddling about but is worth the effort. It is a firm family favourite- first served by my mother and then by her daughters. Why not give it a try?
To make it you will need the following:
4 size 2 egg whites
8oz castor sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon white vinegar
2 teaspoons cornflour
1/2 pint double cream
8 oz fresh fruit
Grease and line a baking tray with parchment paper
whisk the egg whites
whisk in the sugar, vinegar and vanilla essence
Fold in the cornflour
Cook at 15C for 20 minutes
cool and turn out onto sugared paper
whisk the cream and spread over the meringue
spread the fruit (I like to use strawberries or raspberries)
Using the paper fold the edge of the meringue towards you and keep rolling like a swiss roll
Cut into slices and serve with extra berries
