Instructions
  1. Combine flour, semolina and salt in a large bowl. In a medium jug, combine warm water, yeast, sugar and oil. Set aside for 3 minutes or until foamy.
  2. Make a well in centre of flour mixture and gradually pour in yeast mixture. Using your hands, gradually combine ingredients to form a dough.
  3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until smooth. If dough is too sticky to work with, add up to 100g extra flour.
  4. Lightly grease a large bowl with extra oil. Transfer dough to bowl, then cover with plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm and dry place for 45-60 minutes or until dough has doubled in size.
  5. Dust an oven tray with extra semolina. Turn out dough onto prepared tray and shape into a rough oval. Dust with a little more extra semolina, cover with a clean dry tea towel and set aside to prove for 20 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180°C. Toss strawberry rounds with vinegar and 2 Tbsp of the icing sugar in a large bowl.
  7. Stud dough with strawberry rounds, poking into indentations to stop dough from rising while baking. Dust with 1 Tbsp of the remaining icing sugar and drizzle over a little of the bowl juices from strawberries. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
  8. Dust with remaining sugar and scatter over basil leaves. Slice into pieces and serve.

Instructions
Honey Comb
  1. Line a small baking tin with baking paper (we used 20 x 20 but the exact size doesn’t matter)
  2. In a medium heavy based pan, heat the sugar and golden syrup over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Meanwhile, measure the baking soda into a small container, ready to use quickly, and have the baking tin nearby.
  3. Increase the heat and bring the sugar to the boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn. you’ll see it turn a slightly darker caramel colour.
  4. Add the baking soda and quickly stir to fully combine - the honeycomb will froth up and lighten.
  5. Quickly pour into prepared tin. Don’t worry about spreading it out evenly.
  6. Leave to set until cold and then break into pieces. If it has been a very humid day, you might find that it gets a bit sticky - just keep it in the freezer until you need it and it will much easier to snap and crumble
  7. You will probably have extra left over after using it for the pavlova - dip leftovers in melted chocolate to make them even better!
Slab Pavlova Base
  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Using a 20x 30cm tin or a ruler, trace out a roughly 20 x 30cm rectangle on your baking paper with a pencil - this gives you a guide for shaping the pavlova.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C (not fan bake).
  3. Wipe out your stand mixing bowl with a bit of lemon juice or vinegar to remove any bits of grease from last time you used it - you want your bowl and beater attachment to be super clean and dry.
  4. Add the egg whites and salt to the bowl and beat using the whisk attachment on high speed until frothy.
  5. Still on high speed, start adding the caster sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it is all absorbed and the egg whites are stiff and glossy. This should take about 10 minutes, and when you rub a bit of meringue between your fingers you shouldn’t be able to feel any sugar granules.
  6. Whisk in the vinegar. Sift the corn flour over the meringue and gently fold through with a spatula.
  7. Use a big spoon to drop dollops of meringue onto your traced rectangle. Use an offset spatular similar to spread it gently into a rectangle, creating a few swirls and peaks as you go.
  8. Place it in the oven. Immediately turn the heat down to 130°C and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Turn off the oven and leave it in the oven without opening the door until completely cool, ideally overnight.
Honey Roast Peaches
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Halve and stone the peaches and place cut side up in a single layer in a rectangular roasting tray or baking tin with sides. In a small bowl, combine the honey, brown sugar, water and vanilla. Pour over the peaches.
  3. Roast for 30-40 minutes, basting the peaches with the honey syrup occasionally, until the peaches are tender and starting to caramelise around the edges.
  4. Set aside in a bowl to cool, including the honey syrup. Use at room temperature - if they are still hot they will start making the mascarpone cream runny.
Mascarpone Cream
  1. Whip the cream to soft peaks.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the mascarpone, creme fraiche, icing sugar and vanilla. Fold in the softly whipped cream.
To assemble
  1. Spoon the mascarpone cream over the cooled pavlova base.
  2. Top with the cooled caramelised peaches and shards of hokey pokey.
  3. Serve immediately

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 90°C. Using a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites on medium-high speed until frothy, about 1 minute. With the motor running, add 1/2 cup sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, and beat until medium peaks form, about 5 minutes. Continue to beat until stiff, glossy peaks form, 10–12 minutes.
  2. Transfer meringue to pastry bag and cut off tip so opening is 1/4" wide. Pipe four 3 1/4" rounds onto a grease proof-lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake meringues until dry, firm, and peel easily off of baking sheet around 90–105 minutes. Turn off oven and let cool in oven with door slightly ajar.
  3. Meanwhile, pulse chopped peach in a food processor until smooth. Transfer peach purée to a small bowl.
  4. Toss peach wedges with 1 Tbsp. sugar and 1 tsp. lime juice. Let sit, tossing occasionally, until peaches release their juices.
  5. Bring a medium pot of water to a simmer. Whisk rum, egg yolks, and remaining 1/3 cup sugar and 1/4 cup lime juice in a medium bowl. Place bowl over a pot of barely simmering water and cook, whisking constantly, until mixture is foamy and thickens slightly, around 5 – 6 minutes. Whisk in butter a few pieces at a time, incorporating completely before adding more. Stir in peach purée and let cool slightly.
  6. Strain through a fine-sieve into a small bowl. Press plastic wrap directly onto surface and chill until cold, at least 2 hours.
  7. Gently break each meringue and divide among bowls. Spoon peach curd over and top with macerated peaches.

Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan. Put the egg whites and sugar in a stand mixer and begin to beat on a low speed for a few mins, turn the mixer up and wait another couple of mins before adding the lemon juice, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Turn the mixer up again and whisk on high until you have a thick, soft, shiny meringue with a peak that flops over.
  2. Fold in the flour with a spatula until there are no lumps left, then scrape the mixture into a 25cm angel cake tin. Bake for 40-45 mins or until the cake is puffed and lightly browned and a skewer comes out clean. Turn the tin upside down – if it doesn’t have its own legs, then invert it onto four water glasses or tins of food exactly the same size. Leave to cool completely.
  3. Run a palette knife around the tin to loosen the cake and gently let it drop out, then set aside on a board or cake stand.
  4. To make the meringue icing, put the egg whites, sugar, vanilla, pinch of cream of tartar and 100ml water in a large heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water and beat it on high speed with an electric whisk for 15 mins or until thick and shiny and standing up in stiff peaks. Ice the cake straight away as the icing will stiffen as it sets. Spread over using a palette knife or use a piping bag to pipe on swirls.
  5. Put the iced cake in the fridge while you make the strawberry ganache. Put the white chocolate in a small heatproof bowl and set aside. Put the cream and strawberries in a saucepan over a medium heat and cook, stirring all the time, until the strawberries have broken down and the cream starts to simmer. Quickly pour the hot cream mixture over the white chocolate and leave it, without stirring, for 1 min, then add the food colouring and mix until smooth.
  6. Push through a sieve into a jug (to get rid of the strawberry seeds) then, while it’s still runny, pour it over the top of the cake and let it drizzle down the sides. Put the cake back in the fridge for 10-20 mins to set. Just before serving (particularly if it’s a hot day), top with the strawberries and your choice of decorations.
