When using dairy, no other products match the versatile qualities of French cream. Here pastry chef Aaliya Randeree shares a recipe using the staple ingredient

 

FOR THE PAVLOVA

Yield – 20 pcs (20g each)

120g egg whites

250g sugar

1 tsp white wine vinegar

1 tsp corn flour

1 tsp vanilla

100g walnuts, chopped

100g dark chocolate, melted

Maldon salt

  • Preheat the oven to 120° C.
  • Whisk egg whites in an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment until it forms a stiff peak, add the sugar one tablespoon at a time until the meringue is stiff and glossy.
  • Whisk in vinegar, corn flour and vanilla.
  • Fold in half of the chopped walnut then swirl in the 3⁄4 melted chocolate.
  • Weigh 20g of meringue onto baking paper then shape each one into circles creating a crater by making the sides a little higher than the middle. Sprinkle with walnuts and maldon salt then drizzle chocolate.
  • Bake at 120° C for 40-60 mins. Turn the tray after the first 30 min. Turn off the oven and allow to cool completely.

15g dried roses
