the finishing touches

“This bombe is all about the layers – pillowy meringue, soft pandoro and a salty sweet ice cream centre. You’ve never had anything like it!”



Begin this recipe 1 day ahead. You will need a small palette knife.

6 eggwhites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
11/2 cups (330g) caster sugar
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp white vinegar
Pulp from 6 large passionfruit (about 175g), plus extra to serve
1/2 cup (180g) runny honey, plus extra to serve
725ml thickened cream
2 titanium-strength gelatine leaves, softened in cold water for 5 minutes

Preheat oven to 160°C.

Trace a 20cm circle, using a cake pan as a guide, on a piece of baking paper. Turn over so the circle is on the underside and use to line a large baking tray.

Place eggwhites and cream of tartar in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment and whisk to soft peaks. With the motor running, add 1 tbs sugar every 30 seconds and continue whisking until well incorporated. Whisk for a further 8-10 minutes until mixture is thick and glossy and sugar has dissolved.

Add cornflour and whisk to combine, then whisk in the vinegar. Spoon meringue on prepared tray and use a palette knife to smooth the sides and top top. Using a small palette knife, drag the side of the meringue from the bottom upwards into peaks. Repeat around the entire edge.

Place pavlova in the oven and reduce oven
