Choc Berry Pavlova | Recipe

By 7:24 PM , ,

I'll admit whenever I have made a pavlova in the past, I have just bought the base. Its so easy and cheap and makes for a quick and easy dessert. But I decided I wanted to try making it from scratch. The best thing about making it yourself is that you can totally customise it, which is why I decided to try making a chocolate base. Once I decided to make the base chocolate it was a quick decision to top it with chocolate ganache and berries. The end was result was a totally decadent dessert that was surprisingly easy to make! I'm not saying I'm never going to buy a ready made base again but it certainly felt good that making something from scratch paid off.

6 egg whites
1 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 punnets strawberries, roughly chopped
1 cup punnet raspberries
300 grams chocolate
1 cup double cream
1/3 cup shredded coconut

1. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form
2. Gradually add in the caster sugar and cocoa powder, mixing continuously
3. Pour into a non stick cake tin and bake for 1 hour at 120 degrees Celsius
4. Over low heat, melt together the cream and chocolate and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the ganache to set
5. Lightly toast the coconut over low heat in a fry pan
6. Pour the ganache over the pavlova base. Throw on the berries and top with the coconut
