Pavlova with Passionfruit Sauce

Pavlova is a meringue cake that has a light and delivate crisp and a soft sweet marshmallow center.This lovely dessert is mostly served with whipped cream and fresh fruits.I liked this combination of various fruits with passionfruit sauce as the sweetness and sourness is just nice.

Lovely spread of various fruits - rasphberries, blackberries, gooseberry & passionfruits.

7. Whisk the cream till soft peaks form.
8. Spread over the Pavlova, top with passionfruit sauce and fruits.

* You’ll know when the meringue is stiff and glossy because the mixture will have tripled in volume and stands up when the beaters are lifted.
* The low heat puffs up the meringue while the long cooking time dries it out to give you a lovely crisp shell.
* Store your pavlova, undressed, in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
