Serves 4-6

 

Ingredients:

For the meringue

4 free range egg whites

225g caster sugar

1 tsp vinegar

1/2½tsp vanilla essence

2 tsp cornflour

For the filling

300ml double cream

3 tbsp Malibu® or coconut flavoured liqueur

1-2 slices pineapple, cut into wedges

1 medium mango, peeled, stoned and sliced

1 papaya, peeled, deseeded and sliced

1 passion fruit, halved

 

 

Method:

1) Preheat the oven to 130°C. Line a baking sheet with non-stick baking paper, using a little oil underneath to help the paper stick.

2) Place the egg whites into the Kenwood kitchen machine, whisk on high speed for approx. 2-3 minutes, until stiff. Add a large spoonful of sugar and whisk on high speed for approx. 2 minutes, until stiff. Continue adding spoonfuls and whisking after each addition as above until stiff.

3) Using a metal spoon, fold in the vinegar, vanilla essence and cornflour, until well blended. Spoon onto parchment paper in a 23cm circle, creating a swirled and peaked effect. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes – 1 hour 30 minutes. Turn off oven and leave to cool completely in the oven.

4) Place the meringue on a plate, discarding the paper.

5) Whisk the cream in the Kenwood kitchen machine until it holds its shape, but do not over-whisk. Quickly whisk in the liqueur. Spread the cream on top of the meringue. Decorate with the exotic fruits, spooning the passionfruit pulp out of its shell to finish, then serve.
