For the baked meringues
For the blackberry sauce
For the garnishes
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped softly with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup lemon curd
  • 6 ounces blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Make the baked meringues:
  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the egg whites in a large mixing bowl and whip on medium high speed until frothy.  
  3. Gradually and very S-L-O-W-L-Y, add the sugar, while continuing to whip.  
  4. Add the salt and whip until the meringue holds stiff peaks.  
  5. Scoop the meringue onto the prepared baking sheet, in two equal rounds.  Use the back of a spoon or silicone spatula to spread the meringue into a circle approximately 6-inches in diameter and 1-inch high.  
  6. Bake for one hour, turn off the oven, and prop the oven door open with the handle of a wooden spoon.  Allow the meringues to come to room temperature in the oven.
Make the blackberry sauce:
  1. Place the blackberries, sugar, and water in a small pot and cook over medium-low heat until the berries have softened and the liquid has thickened (about 15 minutes).  Cool completely.
Assemble the Pavlova:
  1. Just before serving, place one round of baked meringue on a cake plate.  
  2. Top with half the whipped cream, half the lemon curd, half the blackberry sauce, and half the fresh blackberries.  
  3. Top with the remaining round of baked meringue, and repeat.  
  4. Dust with powdered sugar.
