Ingredients

Meringue Nests

  • 4 egg whites room temp
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 3 tsps cornflour/cornstarch
  • 1 tsp white vinegar

To Decorate

  • 250 ml thickened cream
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1/2 jar of jam I suggest Bonne Maman's Blueberry & Lilly Pilly
  • 1 punnet of blueberries
  • Mint leaves to garnish

Instructions

Meringue Nests

  • Preheat oven to 150°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Gradually add the sugar, beating well until the mixture is glossy and the sugar has dissolved.
  • Add the cornflour and vinegar and fold through.
  • Transfer mixture to piping bag with a nozzle attached and pipe round nest shapes around 10cm in diameter onto the parchment paper.
  • Place in the oven, reduce the heat to 120°C and cook for 20 minutes.
  • Then turn the oven off and allow the meringues to completely cool in the oven.

To Decorate

  • Using an electric mixer, beat cream and icing sugar until soft peaks form.
  • Top each pavlova with whipped cream and a tablespoon of jam. You may need to slightly warm the jam in the microwave for 10 seconds so it's runny.
  • Decorate with blueberries and mint.
