  • golden caster 200g
  • cornflour 1 tsp
  • white wine vinegar 1 tsp


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180c/fan 160c/gas 4. To make the meringue, whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks, then add the sugar a bit at a time, whisking until glossy and stiff. Whisk in the cornflour and vinegar.

  • Step 2

    Use a dinner plate to trace a circle on a piece of baking paper then fill with the meringue and use a large palette knife to draw up the edges. Turn the oven down to 120c/fan 100c/gas ½. Cook for 1½ hours and leave to cool completely.

  • Step 3

    Cook the rhubarb and sugar in a large pan, with a splash of water, on a low heat until tender. Put the grenadine in the pan and reduce to a syrup. Cool and mix with the rhubarb.

  • Step 4

    To serve, pile the cream on top of the pavlova, top with the rhubarb and a drizzle of syrup.
