    Passion fruit curd meringues

    • Vegetarian
    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 4


    200ml passion fruit pulp and seeds (from 4-6 fruits), plus an extra fruit for decoration
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    100g caster sugar
    3 eggs
    125g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
    200ml double cream
    8 small meringue nests


    1. With a wooden spoon, pass the pulp and seeds through a sieve into a pan, scraping in any pulp from the underside of the sieve. Discard the seeds.

    2. Add the lemon juice, sugar and eggs to the pan and whisk until well combined. Add the butter and stir over the lowest heat until it thickens into a curd – about 5 minutes; don’t raise the heat or stop stirring as it might curdle. Once thickened, strain into a bowl; leave to cool.

    3. Meanwhile, whip the cream to soft peaks in a large bowl. Pile on top of the meringues, loosely layering with the cooled curd. Scoop out the pulp from the extra passion fruit and spoon over to serve.
