Coconut Pavlova Wreath

Serves: 12

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 egg whites, at room temperature
  • ¼ tsp McKenzie’s Cream of Tartar
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • ½ cup McKenzie’s Moist Flakes Coconut
  • 250ml (1 cup) thickened cream, whipped
  • 125g fresh raspberries
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ¼ cup caster sugar, extra
  • 1 pomegranate, seeds removed
  • ½ cup pistachios, chopped
  • ½ cup McKenzie’s Shredded/Moist Coconut, extra

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 130oC. Line a baking tray with baking paper and trace a circle using a 22cm baking tin. Turn baking paper over.
  2. Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Add the sugar a few tablespoons at a time. Beat until stiff and glossy. Gently fold through the coconut using a metal spoon.
  3. Spoon or pipe the meringue onto the marked baking paper to form a wreath. Repeat with a second layer of meringue over the first layer. Bake in the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave to cool completely with the oven door slightly ajar.
  4. To make the coulis, blend the fresh raspberries, lemon juice and sugar with a stick blender until smooth.
  5. To assemble, pipe or dollop the cream onto the pavlova. Drizzle over coulis and scatter with pomegranate seeds, chopped pistachios and coconut.
