TO PREPARE THE MERINGUE
Pre-heat oven to 130°C (110°C for a fan oven), Gas Mark 1
Lay a sheet of greaseproof paper on a flat surface and mark around a 20cm/8” tin or sandwich plate with a pen, to create a circular template
Empty the sachet of meringue mix into a large, clean, grease free bowl and add 150ml of cold water.
Stir gently until most of the meringue mix is wetted, and then whisk on a high speed for 4 minutes until the mixture becomes thick, glossy and able to form peaks. This will take much longer if using a hand whisk.
Using a little of the meringue, stick the greaseproof paper to the baking tray, ink faced towards the tray – the circle should still be visible through the back of the paper.
Gently transfer the meringue mix to the grease proof paper and shape the mixture into a circle. Keeping within the line of the circle, create your pavlova base, taking care to make sure the top is flat.
Bake in the oven for one hour and then switch off the heat and leave in the oven for another hour.
Remove from the oven and leave until completely cool. Carefully lift the meringue from the grease proof paper and place on a serving plate before filling.
TO PREPARE THE TOPPING
In a large bowl, empty the sachet of Green’s Tiramisu and add 125ml of double cream and 125ml of cold milk.
Whisk on high speed for 3 minutes.
