Black Forest Pavlova

I am sorry for not posting this recipe sooner.. i wanted to but unfortunately hubs misplaced my USB SD card reader somewhere and i cant upload my pic on my new lappy.. bought a new reader yesterday and here i am updating my blog..

This was the pavlova that hubs been wanting me to bake... i didnt get to it till a few days ago and oh boy someone was a happy puppy the moment he took a spoonful of it.. the meringue was crisppy on the outside and chewy on the inside.. i even made meringue kisses for little Sonia using this recipe .. ish talking abt little Sonia.. i hv started training her to fast during Ramadhan.. not as easy as Hairi but shes getting there.. first day she had her brekkie and by lunch she was already asking for her milk.. the second day she had brekkie and didnt eat anything till iftar.. this went on for a couple of days.. yesterday was a little challenging lol.. she didnt hv breakfast but at around 2pm she was walking in and out of our kitchen and asked me if it has Azan .. i decided to let her eat something and that quietened her down a little.. anyway today i hope when shes done with school she will not ask for her milk :op

So ok lets get on with this wonderful recipe.. ty Yvonne for sharing it.. i wud suggest u prepare ur vanilla sugar in advance bef whipping it with ur double cream.. i got mine fm Dr Oetker hehe

Black Forest meringues:
{Enough for about 10 servings}

3 egg whites
a pinch of salt
130 grams of sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
50 gr icing sugar
2 tbsp cocoa

Cut a piece of parchment to fit a rimmed baking sheet. Using a small bowl and a pencil, trace four 5-inch circles, 2 to 3 inches apart, on the parchment; bear down so that the circles will be visible from the other side. Place parchment, marked side down, on baking sheet. Set aside. - i used my mastrad mac sheets
Preheat oven to 80C. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form, about 4 minutes. Increase speed to high and sprinkle in ur confectioners' sugar, a few tablespoons at a time, and cornstarch; beat until meringue is thick and shiny and holds stiff peaks, about 5 minutes. Add in ur icing sugar and cocoa powder
Using a spatula, gently spread one-fourth of the meringue inside each parchment circle. Using the back of a spoon, create a 1-inch-deep well in the center of each meringue (U can also use a piping bag to pipe a circle with a star tip.. u can check out bravegirlsclub on you tube on how to pipe ur meringue disc) Bake until meringues are a very pale golden color, about 2 and half hours. Turn heat off and prop oven door open slightly with a wooden spoon. Let meringues cool in oven until crisp.

250 gr double cream
(Alternatively 100 gr 150 gr whipped cream and mascarpone)
2 packets of Bourbon vanilla sugar
1 tablespoon kirsch (simply omit)
1 jar of Amarena cherries (250gr. fill weight) -  i used dark cherry in a can
Dark Chocolate shavings

Meanwhile, place beaters from an electric mixer and a medium-size metal or glass bowl in the freezer and chill until very cold, about 10 minutes. In chilled bowl, combine cream and vanilla sugar. Using an electric mixer, beat until soft peaks form, about 5 minutes.
Once done spoon vanilla cream into wells of meringues. Top with reserved Amerena cherries, and garnish with chocolate shavings
