Ingredients

For the pavalova

  • 4 Egg white(s) (free range)
  • 150g Unrefined golden caster sugar
  • 75g Unrefined light muscovado sugar
  • ½tsp White wine vinegar
  • ½tsp Cornflour

For the topping

  • 8 Clementine(s)

  • 100g Unrefined golden caster sugar
  • 1tsp Vanilla bean paste
  • 400ml Double cream
  • 2tbsp Icing sugar

Directions

  1. Step 1Preheat the oven to 150°C (fan 130°C, gas mark 2). Line a flat baking tray with non-stick baking parchment and draw a 23cm/9inch circle in the centre.
  2. Step 2Combine the caster sugar and muscovado, ensuring there are no lumps. Put the egg whites into a clean bowl and whisk until they form stiff peaks. Whilst still whisking gradually add the sugar mix one tablespoon at a time until the meringue is stiff, shiny and stands in peaks. Fold in the white wine vinegar and cornflour.

  3. Step 3Spread the meringue onto the prepared baking parchment to fill the marked circle, making the edges slightly higher than the centre. Bake for 1 hour before switching off the oven and leaving the door slightly ajar until the meringue is completely cool.
  4. Step 4Peel six of the clementines, getting rid of any white pith. Break into segments and set aside. Remove the pomegranate seeds and add to the clementines. Put the juice of the remaining 2 clementines along with the demerara sugar into a saucepan with the cinnamon stick. Gently heat to dissolve the sugar and bring up to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes before removing from the heat and stirring through the fruit. Allow to cool completely.

  5. Step 5For the caramel shards gently heat the caster sugar in a non-stick small frying pan to make a caramel. Try not to stir whilst the sugar is dissolving. Once the caramel has turned a golden colour pour onto baking parchment and leave to cool. Once cool remove and smash into pieces.
