Pavlova


Last Monday was Australia Day so I thought I'd make a Pavlova. Above and below are photos of the finished result, it's a bit lopsided but I like to call it rustic!

I've never made one before so I followed a recipe on Taste for a Berry Pavlova.

Ingredients:

6 eggwhites
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon cornflour
300ml thickened cream
Mixed berries, to serve
Icing sugar mixture, to dust

Method:


  1. Preheat oven to 120C
  2. Trace a 20cm circle onto a piece of baking paper. Line an oven tray with the baking paper
  3. Use an electric mixer to whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form.
  4. Gradually add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well until thick and glossy and the sugar is dissolved.
  5. Add the vinegar and cornflour and fold with a large metal spoon until just combined.
  6. Spoon mixture onto the prepared tray. Using the traced circle as a guide, use a spatula or pallet knife to shape into a 20cm disc.
  7. Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until dry to touch. Turn off the oven and leave with the door ajar to cool completely.
  8. Use an electric mixer to whisk the cream until soft peaks form.
  9. Transfer pavlova to a serving plate. Top with cream, berries and icing sugar. (I added a kiwi fruit and passionfruit because that's what I had in the fridge)


I'll be definitely making this again, I really can't believe how easy it is to make and it left me wondering why I've never made one before!
