Mixed Berry Pavlova

When I made the Custard Tart a couple of weeks ago, the recipe called for 8 egg yolks. As I hate to see anything go to waste {don't we all?} I saved the egg whites in the freezer until I decided what to make with them.
I thought I'd let the public decide, so a few days ago I sent out a tweet asking for suggestions of what to make with egg whites. I got some great suggestions... lemon meringue pie, meringue kisses and chocolate mousse. But the overwhelming winner was Pavlova.
Great. I've never made Pavlova before, if fact I've never made meringue before. But I'm all for trying something new and I've always thought Pavlova looked pretty amazing.

So I made this Mixed Berry Pavlova today. I don't normally post a recipe on the same day I make it. It usually takes me a few days {or even weeks!} to write it up. But I'm so in love with this Pavlova that I had to share it straight away.
I made it today as my sister and nieces were coming for tea. I love cooking for my family and baking even more so. Maybe it's my way of showing them how much I love them!
My sister and I were hilarious eating this. All you could hear were hmmm's and mmmm's of delight interspersed with a few 'oh my God's! I think you get the picture. It was incredible.

Mixed Berry Pavlova
Serves 8
Preparation time 20 minutes
Baking time 3-5 hours
7 egg whites
350g caster sugar
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp white wine vinegar
600ml double cream
3 tblsp icing sugar
Mixed berries - strawberries, raspberries and blueberries
1 Cadbury's Flake, crushed
Preheat the oven to 150C/gas mark 2. Draw a circle on a piece of baking paper {I drew round a 9" plate}. Turn the paper over and place on a large baking tray.
Make sure your bowl is spotlessly clean and dry. Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks then beat in the sugar a tablespoon at a time, whisking well between each spoonful. When all the sugar has been combined, add the cornflour and white wine vinegar and whisk again for about a minute. The meringue should now be thick and glossy and the sugar should have completely dissolved. If you squeeze a tiny bit of meringue between your finger and thumb you should not be able to feel any grains of sugar.
Spoon the meringue onto the baking paper and spread with a spatula to fill the circle. Turn the oven down to 120C/gas mark 1. Pop in the oven for 3 hours, then turn off the oven and leave the meringue in to cool completely.
To assemble, whip the cream with the icing sugar until it forms soft peaks. Carefully transfer the meringue to a large serving plate. Top with the whipped cream and then the mixed berries. Lastly crumble the flake over the top.
