    Raspberry and lemon curd Pavlova

    Melt-in-the-mouth, marshmallowy meringue, and folds of tangy lemon curd marbled into cream – this luscious pud is the sweetest end to a lazy summer lunch.

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 1 hour, plus cooling
    • Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes, plus cooling 60 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • 4 egg whites
    • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
    • 300g sugar
    • 2 tsp cornflour
    • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
    • 284ml pot whipping cream
    • ½ x 325g jar Waitrose Luxury Lemon Curd
    • 300g fresh Tulameen raspberries


    1. Preheat oven to 140°C, gas mark 1. Draw a 22cm circle onto a large square of non-stick baking parchment and use to line a flat baking sheet.
    2. Place the egg whites in a really clean and grease-free bowl with the cream of tartar, and whip with an electric whisk until they hold their shape and form soft peaks. Add half the sugar, spoon by spoon, continuing to whisk until the meringue is glossy and thick. Fold in the remaining sugar with a large metal spoon, followed by the cornflour and the vinegar.
    3. Pile onto the baking sheet in a circle, flattening the top slightly, and run a palette knife around the edges for smooth, straight sides. Bake for 1 hour until crisp on top.
    4. Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly before carefully inverting onto a serving plate. Leave to cool completely before removing the paper from the base as this will help prevent the meringue from cracking.
    5. Whip the cream to soft peaks then gently fold in the lemon curd, keeping a marbled effect. Pile the cream onto the pavlova, scatter with the raspberries and serve.
