CAPPUCCINO PAVLOVA

I am inordinately proud of this, and am not ashamed to say so. I have long been a pava-holic but this is my first venture into a fruit-free (though far from fruitless) version. The instant espresso powder (do not use instant coffee granules) gives bitter oomph to the sweet, marshmallowy meringue, which I make with Two Chicks’ free-range egg whites. I saw Monica use these on MasterChef: The Professionals, and if they’re good enough for her, they’re good enough for me!

Recipe posted by Nigella

4 egg whites

Pinch of salt

2 tsps cornflour

300ml double cream

Serves: 10

Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Line a flat oven sheet with baking parchment and, using a 23cm cake tin, draw a circle on it.

Mix the sugar with the instant espresso powder in a small bowl and set aside.

In a clean, grease-free metal bowl whisk the egg whites and salt until they are holding soft peaks. Keep whisking while you add the sugar-coffee mixture a tablespoon at a time.

When you have a firm,ecru-coloured meringue, fold in the cornflour and vinegar using a grease-free metal spoon.

Dollop the meringue mixture inside the drawn circle. Smooth and shape it with a spatula so that it looks rather like the crown of a boater: it must be flat on top.

Put it in the oven and immediately turn down to 150°C/gas mark 3 and cook for an hour. Switch off the oven and leave inside until cool.

Once the base is cool,lift it carefully in its paper and place it top-side down on a flat plate and peel off the paper. 

Whip the double cream until thick but soft and spread delicately over the top of the meringue. With a teaspoon, push the cocoa through a fine sieve or tea strainer to decorate the top, cappuccino-style.

Peanut butter hummus doesn't have an elegant ring to it, but elegant is exactly what this is. Rather than using tahini, which is in effect sesame butter, I use peanut butter. Is it dreadful to say I prefer… This is the fruity blonde sister to the brunette temptress… Read More Nigella shares the recipe for her time-honoured Christmas drink, the Poinsettia.
