SPREADING CHRISTMAS CHEERS WITH SA WEDDINGS

As we prepare to bid farewell to 2020, we look forward to an amazing festive season with our nearest and dearest. Kath, Inverroche Distillery and Las Paletas spread some festive cheer with delightful cocktail recipes, pavlova and ice cream delights to enjoy over the season. 

CHRISTMAS PAVLOVA

Tuck into Kath’s delicious and oh-so-decadent Christmas pavlova. Serves 12 and is a delightful ending to a delicious Christmas lunch!

MERINGUE

  • 8 egg whites
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 2 cups castor sugar
  • 30ml boiling water
  • 2 TBSP corn flour/maizena

FILLING

  • 500ml whipping cream – beaten
  • x1 punnet blueberries
  • x1 punnet raspberries
  • x1 punnet cherries
  • x1 small packet of Chuckles
  • 100g melted white chocolate to drizzle on the top
  • Fresh mint (optional)

EQUIPMENT

  • Glass or stainless steel bowl
  • Electric beater
  • Baking paper
  • Ruler and pencil to draw your 30cm circle
This delicious Pavlova looks as good as it tastes!

METHOD

Place your egg whites in a glass/stainless steel bowl and beat with an electric beater until foaming slightly. Add your vinegar and continue beating until mixture is thick, stiff and slightly dry. Gradually add castor sugar, beating continuously until mixture is firm and retains its shape. Lastly beat in the boiling water and corn flour.

To make a Christmas wreath pavlova, place your baking paper on a large baking tray and draw a 30cm circle on the baking paper. Lightly dust your baking paper with some corn flour or use Spray & Cook. Using 2 tablespoons, spoon your meringue mixture around the circle, work from the outside of your circle inwards. The mixture does spread while cooking. 

Bake at 140’C for 45 minutes, then turn the oven down to 120’C and bake for a further 1 hour and 20 minutes. Turn oven off and leave in oven to cool with the oven door ajar. Once cool, whip your cream, decorate your Pavlova wreath and serve.

With the left over egg yolks you can make mayonnaise or even some Christmas biscuits. Merry Christmas to you all!!

How absolutely delicious does this look! YUM!
