Strawberry Pavlova to be more precise.
Recently I had the privilege of reading and reviewing the amazing book Oh! What a Pavlova by Isabella May (read my review here) and it inspired me to share my Pavlova recipe with you.
So use my recipe and make it your own. The variations are endless. You can add strawberries or kiwi fruit or chocolate with nuts and pears.
Here is my easy to make, never fail Strawberry Pavlova recipe.
4 egg whites
250g caster sugar
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the topping
500g fresh strawberries
2 tbsp icing sugar
Heat oven to 150C/130C fan. Using a pencil, mark out the circumference of a dinner plate on baking parchment. Whisk the egg whites with a hand mixer until they form stiff peaks, then whisk in the sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, until the meringue looks glossy. Whisk in the vinegar, cornflour and vanilla.
Spread the meringue inside the circle, creating a crater by making the sides a little higher than the middle. Bake for 1 hr, then turn off the heat and let the Pavlova cool completely inside the oven.
When the meringue is cool, chop the strawberries. Cover in 1 tbsp icing sugar (optional). Let it stand to sweeten. Whip the cream and spread it over the meringue. Put the strawberries on top of on the cream and dust with the remaining icing sugar if desired
I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
