Serves: 8-10


  • 4 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean extract
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 300ml fresh cream, whipped
  • 250g fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 125g fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 pomegranate
  • fresh mint to garnish

For coulis:

  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 125g frozen raspberries
  • 1 lemon, juiced


Step 1
Preheat oven to 120C, or 100C for a fan-forced oven. Line a tray with a sheet of baking paper. Use a 25cm round baking tin to trace a large circle on the baking paper, then draw another 15cm-wide circle inside the larger circle.

Step 2
Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks begin to form. Slowly add the sugar, a small amount at a time, until the meringue mix is stiff and shiny.  Add cornflour, vinegar and vanilla bean extract and fold in lightly.

Step 3
Using a dessert spoon or wooden spoon, scoop a large dollop of meringue mix onto the tray, between the larger and smaller circle. Repeat this until the ring is complete, then create a second layer following the same process. Smooth the top with the spoon. Place the wreath in the oven for 2 hours.

To help avoid your meringue cracking or collapsing turn off the oven after 2 hours and open the door slightly. Leave the meringue in the oven until completely cool.

Step 4
Make your couli by blending the frozen raspberries, sugar and lemon juice until it is a smooth consistency. Put to the side in a pouring jug.

Step 5
Move the wreath to a serving dish and dress it with whipped cream.  Drizzle on coulis, and then decorate with fresh berries, pomegranate and mint. Serve straight away for a delicious and fresh Christmas dessert.
