Well...can you believe that in all my 40 odd years of cooking, I've never made meringue before? I thought it was about time. This is a sort of Pavlova, I suppose. It was actually very easy to make. This method produces a crisp meringue which is gooey on the inside.

For the meringue:
3 egg whites
150g caster sugar
Pinch of salt

For the topping:
300ml double cream or whipping cream
50g of dark chocolate
Kiwi fruit
Icing sugar

  • Preheat oven to 150 C and line an oven tray with baking paper.
  • Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  • Add the salt and caster sugar bit by bit (beating as you go).
  • Pile the meringue into the tray and shape as desired.
  • Bake for one hour then turn off oven and allow to cool.
  • Cook some of the strawberries with a little sugar until softened and producing juice. Allow to cool.
  • Break up chocolate and place in saucepan with some hot water added. Heat gently to form a chocolate sauce. Allow to cool.
  • Whip cream into soft peaks.
  • Chop up the kiwi fruit as shown and halve the remaining strawberries.
  • Lightly smash the top of the meringue, pile on the cream and add the toppings.
  • Dust with icing sugar.
