For the meringue

For the cream

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 140C/120C fan/gas 1. For the meringue, whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. With the motor running at a medium-high speed, add the sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, making sure it’s well combined and stiff again before adding more. Continue whisking until all the sugar has been incorporated and the meringue looks stiff, glossy and holds tall peaks when the beaters are lifted. Briefly whisk in the vanilla, cornflour and vinegar.

  • STEP 2

    Spoon the meringue onto a baking sheet lined with baking parchment, and smooth out into a roughly 21cm circle that’s about 4-5cm deep. Bake for 1 hr 30 mins, then turn off the oven and leave the meringue inside with the oven door closed to dry out and cool completely, about 2 hrs.

  • STEP 3

    For the cream, whip the cream, sugar and rum or brandy together until just starting to thicken. Fold in the mincemeat gently to create a marble effect, then spoon the cream over the cooled meringue. Top with the satsuma slices, chopped pistachios, grated chocolate, mint leaves and orange zest. Dust with a little icing sugar to finish.
