Recipe For White Chocolate Pavlova

As I was saying in my post for chicken liver terrine, this week’s Freshly Blogged challenge had to be two dishes, both using cayenne pepper and cinnamon. We did not have to make a dessert but I chose to as given the ingredient limitations and the addition of vinegar to the pantry, I knew I could make something sweet. The inspiration for this week’s recipes came from James Martin. Better known as Sweet Baby James, his dessert recipes are extremely inspiring and always work. I have never used white chocolate before as there has not been a sugar free version in South Africa for a number of years now, and so I paged through his Desserts recipe book to see what I could make. My first thought was to make a white chocolate semifreddo but I then decided to make a pavlova as my meringues never fail me.

Ingredients
  • 3 egg whites
  • 125g caster sugar, sieved, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 5mls cornflour
  • 2.5mls white wine vinegar
  • 250mls milk, divided
  • 20g custard powder
  • 35g sugar
  • 5mls ground cinnamon
  • 250g strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 0.625mls cayenne pepper
  • 80g white chocolate
  • 15mls cream
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°Celsius
  2. Whisk the egg whites on a low speed until frothy
  3. Whisk on medium speed until stiff peaks are formed
  4. On a high speed add the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff and glossy
  5. Fold in the corn flour and vinegar
  6. Place most of the meringue onto a lined baking sheet in the shape of a circle
  7. Pipe the edges and bake for 10 minutes
  8. Reduce the heat and bake for a further 2 hours
  9. Put 50mls milk into a saucepan and add the custard, sugar and cinnamon
  10. Stir until dissolved and add the rest of the milk
  11. Bring to the boil over a medium heat, stirring constantly until thick
  12. Pour into a bowl, dust with caster sugar and set aside to cool
  13. Layer the strawberries cut side up on a plate and sprinkle with the cayenne pepper
  14. Once you have taken the pavlova out of the oven, melt the white chocolate over a bain-marie
  15. Brush the chocolate into the middle of the pavlova
  16. Loosen the custard with the cream and layer on top of the chocolate
  17. Place the strawberries cut side down onto the custard and serve immediately
