Preheat the oven to 350F. In a small roasting pan mix the brown sugar, peaches, apricots cinnamon and lemon juice. Roast in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. Until the sugar has melted and the peaches have softened. Remove from the oven and set aside while you make the meringue.
To make the meringue
Turn the oven down to 212F. Place the sugar and egg whites in the bowl of a mixer fitted with the whisk. Mix the meringue on the lowest setting for 2 minutes. Until the mixture is completely smooth, thick and silky white. Turn the mixer up to medium-high and whip until the meringue has stiff peaks.
Place the meringue on a baking tray lined with a sheet of baking paper or a baking mat. Using a spoon, gently start to make a well in the center. Starting in the middle and working your way out. Bake in the oven for about 3 hours.
When ready to serve, whip the cream and fill the pavlova. Place the roasted fruit on top and let the juices run down the side of the meringue.
Note 1- Cooking time will depend on the ripeness of the peaches. Decrease the roasting time for soft ripe peaches
Note 2- The peaches can be roasted ahead of time and left in the fridge overnight until you are ready to serve. Leave the peaches in the juice when storing.
