Method

Nougatine Pavlova is a community recipe submitted by renee and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Beat the egg whites, add the castor sugar a tablespoon at a time.
  • Fold in the chopped dates, nuts and the biscuits.
  • Spread meringue onto baking paper in a 20cm circle.
  • Bake at 140C for 2 hours and leave to cool in the oven.
  • Slice horizontally, fill the inside generously with cream and dollop the rest of the cream on top.
  • Decorate with chocolate leaves or curls and rosebuds.
  • (I prefer to do 2 thinner circles and not have to split them, which could be disastrous! I also put the meringue into the oven at 180C and then turned it down immediately to 140C. It is possible the pav could be ready sooner than 2 hours - just check. I also added a little sugar and some vanilla to the cream.) from IDEAS Magazine
