this is a very nice variant on the classic pavlova! these pavlova’s are hollow inside, ideal to fill with nice creams.
I made a vanilla cream with a heart of blackberry coulis and on top a blackberry mousse with a touch of rose!
2 egg whites
50g icing sugar
2 gelatin leaves
60g whipped cream
1/2 vanilla bean
35g egg yolks
25g white chocolate
125g whipped cream
2 gelatin leaves
fresh lemon juice
150g whipped cream
1 gelatin leaf
75g white chocolate
mix the egg whites, add the sugar and mix into a shiny foam and stir the icing sugar into it. Put it in a piping bag fitted with a round piping tip. Pipe it over a small half-sphere silicone molds (so you get a hollow in the middle). Dry the meringue at 100C for about 1 hour and leave to cool
bring the milk, whipped cream and vanilla bean seeds to the boil. Stir the egg yolks, sugar and cornstarch. Add this to the milk and cook, under continuously stirring, until the cream starts to thicken. Add the (pre) soaked gelatin and pour over the white chocolate and cool it till 30C. Stir, carefully, the mixed whipped cream and fill the pavlova’s with it
bring the blackberries and sugar to boil, boil until it’s thickened. Divide the coulis with a spoon in the middle over the vanilla cream, and put the filled pavlova’s in the fridge
bring the blackberry puree, sugar and lemon juice to boil, pour this through a sieve and add the (pre) soaked gelatin, cool till 30C. Add some rose extract and stir the mixed whipped cream into it. Pour into small half-sphere molds and put in the freezer
heat the milk, water and glucose, add the (pre) soaked gelatin, pour over the chocolate and stir well. Add some purple/red colour, till you get a nice dark purple colour. Take a blender, mix through the glacage to remove the air bubbles and to make the glacage smooth and shiny. When the glacage has a temp. of around 34C, pour it over the little frozen domes!
divide the mousse over the pavlova’s and decorate with white chocolate en fresh blackberries!!
