easy pavlova

warm sunny weekends need summery desserts. ok so this is a favourite winter dessert too but don't tell anyone.....

Easy pavlova
heat oven to 180 C
whisk 4 eggs whites till frothy

whisk in 25o g caster sugar, till it goes silken, and you can make little peaks

fold in 1tsp of white wine vinegar and 2 tsp of cornflour and spread on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.

turn oven down to 150C, and cook for 1 hour - 1 hour 15 minutes depending on your oven, it needs to be still quite pale. leave to cool in oven (that's why it needs to be slightly underdone)
heap piles of fruit and cream on once cool
and then forget to photograph it before it's all gone. - ok so that bit isn't part of the recipe - or the plan......


  1. you know I absolutely love pavlova yet have never made one as for some reason I think its to difficult but I am going to give it a go and use all the lovely in season strawberries I have!
    Hope you enjoyed it
