Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 70 minutes

Ingredients:

Pavlova

    Method:

  1. Beat the egg whites to form soft peaks, then gradually add sugar until well dissolved. Fold through the corn flour and malt vinegar. Grate the chocolate, and fold through egg mix with toasted coconut (leave quite streaky).

To serve, puree half of the strawberries to a coulis. Serve pavlova topped with cooled choc coco ganache, additional sliced strawberries and extra coconut.
