Berry Chocolate Pavlova
Method

For the meringues

  • Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites in a mixer with the whisk attachment.
  • Gradually add the sugar. Beat until glossy but not too stiff.
  • Melt the 170 g of chocolate couverture in the microwave or in a bain marie. Finely chop the other 170 g of chocolate couverture and add them to the meringue. Beat the hazelnuts in a blender until they are completely broken down. Add them to the meringue also. Gently fold with a spatula until combined.
  • Add the melted chocolate to the meringue and gently fold so that the meringue doesn’t lose any of its fluffiness or volume.
  • Line 3 baking pans with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 100* C (200*F) Fan.
  • Use a bowl and a pen to make circles, 20 cm in diameter, on the parchment paper. Turn them over. Pour the mixture on the parchment paper, dividing it equally amongst the circles and within the circumference of the circles.
  • Bake for 2 2/2 hours, until the meringues are done. When they are done, turn off the oven and leave the oven door ajar for a  few hours, until the meringues cool.

For the filling

  • Beat the cocoa powder with the caster sugar and add the butter, cut into cubes, in a mixer on low speed. Beat until smooth, making sure any small lumps from the butter have disappeared.
  • Add the vanilla and slowly add the heavy cream. Continue beating until a smooth creamy filling is created. (If it seems to turn out too thin and doesn’t hold together properly, refrigerate for 30 minutes, until it becomes more firm. It can then be used.)

For the cake

  • Divide filling into 3 equal parts.
  • Melt the extra 200 g of chocolate couverture in the microwave or in a bain marie.
  • Put a tablespoon full of the filling on a cake stand. Place the first meringue on top of it so that it stays in place.
  • Spread 1/3 of the filling over the meringue. Then, spread 1/3 of the melted chocolate over the filling.
  • Continue in the same way with the rest of the meringues, filling and chocolate.
  • Top with fruit.
