3 Tequila Pav-Floor-va | National Baking Week

3 Tequila Pav-Floor-va

Recipe by John Torode

Prep: 30 mins • Cook: 1hr • Serves: 6 • More Effort


Ingredients - Meringue

5 egg whites

300g caster sugar

1tsp vanilla extract

1tsp white wine or champagne vinegar

1 tsp cornflour

25g desiccated coconut

To Serve


1. Heat the oven to 140C/120C fan/gas 1. To make the meringue, separate the egg whites into a clean bowl (save the yolks for another time) and add the sugar. Beat with an electric whisk for 8-10 mins, or until stiff and glossy. Combine the vanilla, vinegar and cornflour in a separate bowl until smooth, then fold into the eggs along with the coconut.

2. Place a piece of parchment paper or silicone paper over a baking sheet. Spoon the meringue mix onto the sheet and smooth out to form a circle about 20-25cm wide, swirling with a knife to make peaks around the edges. Cook for 1 hr until the meringue is crisp and lightly browned, then turn off the oven and leave to cool. Gently peel away the paper. Can be made up to two days ahead and carefully stored in an airtight container.

3. To serve, whip the cream, crème fraîche, sugar and vanilla extract together until soft peaks form, then spread over the centre of the meringue. Top with the fruit and serve.
