My whole life I have loved Pavlova but I was terrified of making it because I couldn’t separate eggs! Lol.
So I taught myself and now I make this Donna Hay inspired Pav every Christmas.
Add whatever toppings you or the family prefer.
8 Free Range Egg Whites
2 Cups Caster Sugar
6 Tsp Cornflour
2 Tsp White Vinegar
Preheat oven to 150°C.
Place the eggwhites in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, beating 10-15 minutes until the mixture is glossy and stiff.
Sift the cornflour over, add the vinegar and fold through.
Pile into an 18cm-round on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper.
Place in the oven, reduce the heat to 120°C and cook for 1 hour.
Turn the oven off, leave door ajar and allow the meringue to cool in the oven (sometimes I leave it overnight)
To serve, top with whipped cream and fresh fruit. Serves 8–10.
