A Summer Pavlova
Brock’s been making fun of me lately for describing food as ‘gorgeous’…it’s a Northern England thing. But when it comes to desserts like this, there’s simply no better word. :)
This particular Pavlova I made for our summer tea party; and to be honest it could have been better with more cream in the middle, but purely for looks…because it tasted gorgeous!
If you’re looking for a crowd pleasing dessert, this is it! It’s a Donna Hay recipe, you have to give it a try.
Here’s the recipe:
Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F). Place the egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, beating well until the mixture is glossy. 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 (250°F) and cook for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and allow the meringue to cool in the oven. To serve, top with whipped cream and fresh fruit. Serves 6–8.
