Strawberry Pavlova

Happy New Year everyone! This christmas, I decided to make a strawberry pavlova. I know pavlova is more of a summer-y dessert, but the beautiful tones of white and red remind me of Christmas, so I thought why not?

  1. 2 egg whites
  2. 125 g caster sugar
  3. 1/2 tsp vinegar
  4. 1/2 tsp cornflour
  5. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  6. whipping cream and strawberries for the topping

  1. Pre-heat oven to 150 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, and oil it slightly.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, then whisk in the caster sugar one spoon at a time until the meringue turns glossy.
  3. Whisk in the vinegar, cornflour and vanilla.
  4. Spread the meringue on the parchment paper in a circle shape. It doesn't need to be perfect! Spread the meringue in such a way that the sides are higher than the middle to create a crater. 
  5. Bake for an hour. Then, slightly open the oven door and let it cool completely for an hour. 
  6. When it is cool, take it out of the oven and top with whipped cream and strawberries. 
  7. If you leave it in the fridge for 2-3 hours, it will go marshmallow-y and deliciously chewy from the inside.
