25 Mins plus cooling 60 Mins 10 Servings
4 egg whites
315g caster sugar
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cornflour
400g strawberries, hulled and quartered
8 lychees (peeled and stoned if fresh, or tinned), halved
2 passion fruit
1 tbsp light brown muscovado sugar
400ml whipping cream
Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Beat the egg whites and caster sugar together with electric beaters on high speed for 10–15 minutes, until thick and glossy. In a separate small bowl, stir the vinegar and vanilla into the cornflour until smooth, then add to the meringue, beating for 1 more minute.
Line a large, flat baking tray with baking parchment, then dollop the pavlova mixture into the centre. Spread out evenly to form a 23cm circle, keeping it as round and even as possible.
Place the pavlova in the oven, then immediately reduce the temperature to 100°C, gas mark ¼, and bake for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and leave the pavlova inside to cool. Once completely cool, carefully transfer to a serving plate.
Put the strawberries, lychees and passion fruit pulp in a bowl with the muscovado sugar. Mix gently but thoroughly and leave for 5 minutes until the sugar has dissolved. Whip the cream to medium-soft peaks and spread evenly over the pavlova. Spoon over the fruit and serve at once.
