Mango Pavlova




You can't beat this layered pavlova with mango, lime and coconut for a tropical twist on the classic Kiwi dessert. 



  1. Pre-heat oven to 120ºC and line a tray with baking paper.
  2. Whisk egg whites until stiff, add caster sugar 1 teaspoon at a time and keep beating until very stiff. 
  3. Add cornflour, vinegar and vanilla essence and fold together. 
  4. Spread two even rectangles onto tray and bake for one hour. Turn off oven and leave the pavlova inside to cool.
  5. Spread coconut onto a tray and bake until golden.
  6. Cut flesh off mangoes and thinly slice.
  7. Whip cream with icing sugar and spread half onto first layer of pavlova. Scatter over toasted coconut, grate over lime zest, layer half of the mango slices.
  8. Add second layer of pavlova, cream, coconut, lime zest and the rest of the mango. 
  9. Grate white chocolate over the top and serve.


Alternatively this recipe would work well with fresh berries and dark chocolate.
