A simple, sophisticated take on this classic Australian dessert - Donna Hay's perfect pavlova recipe is guaranteed to work every time.
Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F).
Using a pencil, draw a 20cm circle on a sheet of non-stick baking paper. Place the baking paper, pencil-side down, on a lightly greased baking tray+.
Spoon the meringue mixture into the circle to make a neat round. Reduce the oven temperature to 120°C (250°F) and bake for 1 hour. Allow to cool completely in the closed oven++.
Place the cream in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk until soft peaks form.
Place the pavlova on a cake stand or plate and top with the cream, raspberries, passionfruit and peach to serve.
+ Turn the baking paper so it’s pencil-side down on the tray – no marks will transfer onto the meringue.
++ Allow the meringue to cool gradually in the oven with the door closed – preferably overnight.
