Ingredients

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • 75g dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • dark chocolate shavings, to decorate
For the coffee syrup
  • 90ml coffee liqueur such as Tia Maria
  • 60g caster sugar
For the mocha cream
  • 300ml double cream
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder, sifted
  • 3 tbsp coffee liqueur

Step by step

Get ahead
Make the pavlova the day before and leave in the oven to cool overnight, then transfer to an airtight container. Top with the mocha cream shortly before serving. Leftovers keep in the fridge for 1-2 days, but will start to soften.
  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C, fan 130°C, gas 2 and line a large baking sheet with baking paper. Put the egg whites in a large clean bowl or free-standing mixer and whisk to stiff peaks. Mix the two sugars together in a bowl, pressing out any lumps in the dark brown sugar, then add this, a tablespoon at a time, to the egg whites, whisking continuously. When the meringue is lovely and glossy, add the cornflour and vinegar and whisk for a couple of minutes to combine.
  2. Pile the meringue on to the baking tray in a circle about 22cm in diameter – you can mark out a circle on the underside of the baking paper first if you find it easier. Smooth over and build up the sides of the meringue with a palette knife, then make indentations by dragging the palette knife from base to top all the way round. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes initially, then reduce the temperature to 110°C, fan 90°C, gas ¼ and cook for a further 1 hour 20 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the pavlova inside with the door closed, until the oven is completely cold.
  3. For the coffee syrup, put the coffee liqueur in a pan with the sugar and 125ml of water. Bring to a simmer and bubble for 12-15 minutes, until you have a syrupy consistency. Set aside (it will thicken further as it cools).
  4. For the mocha cream, put the double cream in a bowl with the cocoa powder and whisk to soft peaks. Add the liqueur and whisk until incorporated. To assemble, fill the centre of the pavlova with the whipped mocha cream and use a vegetable peeler to shave curls of dark chocolate over the top. Drizzle with the coffee liqueur syrup, serving any extra syrup on the side in a small jug.
