Preparation & Cooking
Preheat oven to 200. Line a 23cm springform tin with non-stick baking paper, ensuring paper comes 4cm above sides of tin. Brush paper with melted butter; sprinkle evenly with cornflour.
Place egg whites and cream of tartar into a clean bowl. Whisk egg whites at top speed, until stiff. Add sugar, 4 teaspoons at a time, while whisking at top speed. Stop when all sugar has been added. Add vinegar, cornflour and vanilla; fold in, using a spatula.
Place mixture in prepared tin; spread up to top edge of tin, creating a hollow in centre. Reduce oven temperature to 100; bake for 1½ hours.
Mix passion fruit pulp with kiwi fruit and strawberries.
Remove meringue from oven; cool on a rack. The centre will fall in as the meringue cools. Remove from tin (see Cook's Tips). Transfer to a flat plate. Spread yoghurt over top of meringue; spoon fruit mixture over yoghurt. Serve immediately.
