This is a must have recipe. It is nice quick and easy!


Australian Pavlova

4-6 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice or white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons corn starch (cornflour)
whipped cream
fresh fruit

Beat egg whites with electric mixer until gentle peaks begin to form. Gradually add sugar, then lemon juice and corn starch. Beat until nice and stiff (5 to 10 minutes).

Cover a round pizza pan with wax paper. Spoon meringue onto pan and use spatula to spread. Use spatula to create peaks around the sides and edges of the pavlova.

Bake for 1 1/2 hours in a 250F degree oven (120C). Pavlova should be crispy on the outside and soft and silky on the inside.

Open oven and leave open with pavlova left inside until it cools. Once cool, spread whipped cream over top and sides. Decorate with fresh fruit slices such as kiwi fruit, mangoes, and strawberries. Delicious!

Never even heard of pavlova, but sounded good. We tried it tonight and it was a big hit. I will make it again for summer days at the lake. Very light and cool!
