Ingredients

  • 120 grams of egg whites (4 egg whites) at room temperature
  • 180 grams of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of pecans, toasted and finely grounded
  • cornstarch
  • 1 lime
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • ½ cup of mascarpone
  • 1/3 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon of almond extract
  • 3 tablespoons of dulce de leche
  • Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 170˚F.
  • In a small stainless steel bowl, add the egg whites and the sugar and place in a Bain Marie, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
  • Whisk continuously until the sugar is completely dissolved. Touch the mix with your finger to make sure there are no granules.
  • Place the mixture in the bowl of a standing mixer. With the globe mix until the meringue is completely cold, stiff, forms peaks and looks like satin.
  • Divide the meringue in two halves.
  • Add the pecans to a bowl and combine it with half of the meringue.
  • Draw the shape of your pavlova over parchment paper and dust it with cornstarch (to avoid the chance of your meringue to stick to the paper).
  • With a spatula, fill the shape with the pecan meringue.
  • Add a few lemon drops to the rest of the meringue, and combine it with a spatula.
  • Distribute the white meringue around the edges of the pecan base, to create sort of a basket.
  • Bake for 2 hours.
  • Turn off the heat and let the meringue completely cool down inside the oven.
  • Freeze the bowl where you’re going to whip the cream.
  • With the globe whip the cream and the mascarpone and progressively add the confectioner sugar.
  • Once the mixture has the desire consistency, add the almond extract and mix.
  • Spread the dulce de leche on the bottom of the meringue (the pecans on).
  • Fill the meringue basket with the cream.
  • Push some of the berries inside the cream.
  • Top off with as many berries as you want.
  • Garnish with fresh spearmint.
