Love pavlova, but wanting some variety? Try this new take on the classic dish, using cranberries.
Preheat the oven to 120°C. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper and mark out a 20cm diameter circle (the pavlova will spread beyond this circle once it starts cooking). Spray with some oil, then dust with corn flour and shake off the excess.
Place egg whites in a very clean bowl and beat until soft peaks form. Add the sugar, a tablespoon at a time and continue to beat on high until all the sugar has been added and is thoroughly dissolved. Add sifted corn flour and vinegar, mix until combined.
Place pavlova mix in the centre of the circle on the baking sheet, and use a spatula or palate knife to very gently spread out the mix to the edges. Make sure to scrape up the sides to create an outside “wall” and that a slight hollow is left in the centre. Bake for 1.5 hours, then turn off oven and leave the door ajar. Allow Pavlova to cool for about 5 hours, then transfer to a airtight container.
For the cranberry curd, combine Ocean Spray® Whole Berry cranberry sauce and water in a saucepan and cook over medium – low heat until cranberries have softened. Push the cranberries through a fine mesh sieve or a food mill. Return the seedless puree to a saucepan.
Add the sugar and allow to dissolve into the puree at a low heat. Next beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Whisking continuously slowly add the warm cranberry sauce mixture to the eggs being careful not to add it too quickly to avoid scrambling the eggs. Cook slowly over a very low heat stirring constantly until it coats the back of a wooden spoon or reaches 70°C with a thermometer. Remove and allow to cool completely.
For the gooey Cranberry sauce simply whisk together the Cranberry sauce and water in a sauce pan over a high heat. Reduce by ¼ and strain. Allow to cool and refrigerate.
Using electric beaters, whip cream until thick and velvety. Fill the center of the pavlova with cranberry curd then top with whipped cream, a generous drizzle of gooey cranberry sauce and garnish with orange segments, zest, mint leaves and Ocean Spray® Craisins®. Serve immediately.
