Festive Pavlova With Berry Compote

Juicy seasonal berries and edible flowers atop a mountain of fluffy sweet cream … our festive pavlova is what Christmas dessert dreams are made of!

Festive Pavlova With Berry Compote

Serves: 6-8
Prep time: 2 hrs, plus cooling time



  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cups caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp white vinegar


  • 500g frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 250g fresh strawberries, sliced in half
  • 125g fresh raspberries
  • 200g fresh cherries
  • Mint leaves
  • Edible flowers


  1. Preheat oven to 120°C and line a large, flat baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Attach the whisk attachment to a KitchenAid mixer, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form.
  3. Gradually add 1 1/2 cups of the caster sugar while the stand mixer is running on mid speed. Whisk for 6-8 mins until the sugar has completely dissolved.
  4. Turn the stand mixer down to a very low speed and add in the cornflour and vinegar until just combined.
  5. Using a spatula, scoop out the mixture onto the lined tray. Very gently scoop up the sides to form a round circle with a flat top.
  6. Place in the oven to bake for 1 1/2 hrs then turn off the oven and leave the door slightly ajar without opening it. It’s best to leave the pavlova overnight to cool down slowly.
  7. To make the berry compote, add the frozen berries and caster sugar to a medium-sized saucepan. Simmer over medium to low heat, with lid ajar, for 15 mins or until the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Once cooled, place in the fridge until ready to serve. This can be made ahead of time.
  8. When you’re ready to serve, add the cream, vanilla essence and icing sugar to a KitchenAid stand mixer with the whisk attached. Whip the cream until soft peaks form.
  9. Add 3 tbsp of the berry compote to the whipped cream and fold through.
  10. Spoon the cream mixture over the top of the pavlova, followed with a few spoonfuls of the berry compote. Finish off with piling up the fresh berries and cherries over the top. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and edible flowers.
