Have you ever had a Pav?

3 posts in this topic

I thought it was time to add a new recipe. Pavlovas are a New Zealand classic dessert and especially loved during the holiday season while the weather is hot and enjoyed after a good old kiwi BBQ. This recipe is just like the one I grew up with and its from the 'Family Circle step-by-step' book.

 

Pavlova:

 

5 egg whites

1 cup sugar

2 tsp white vinegar

2 tsp cornflour

small pinch baking powder

1 1/4 cups cream

berries and fruits to decorate

 

1/ Preheat oven to 150 degrees centigrade and brush a 20 cm round sprinfrom tin with melted butter or oil. Line the base and side with non stick baking paper, extending 3cm above the rim. Grease the paper and dust the base and side with cornflour, shaking off any excess.

2/ Beat the egg whites in a large dry bowl with electric beaters until soft peaks form. Add the sugar gradually, beating well after each addition until thick and glossy and the sugar has dissolved. Beat in the vinegar, cornflour and baking powder. Spoon into the tin and smooth the surface. Bake for 50 - 55 mins, or until well risen and lightly browned on the surface. Turn the oven off but leave the meringue inside until completely cool.

3/ Whip the cream until soft peaks form and spread over the pavlova. Arrange fruit decoratively on top and serve immediately.

 

Hope you enjoy

Very delicious - I've never tried making my own. Never had much luck with meringues. You can buy a very nice frozen version in most larger grocery stores in the UK.


Warm wishes,

Jefa
