Author Notes

Pavlova is a New Zealand/Australian based meringue that will melt in your mouth. It leaves you light, yet satisfied. —Mary Grace

What You'll Need
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 2 teaspoons Cornstarch
  • 1.25 cups White Sugar
  • 1 pint Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 6 Kiwis (or a similar tangy fruit)
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 300F. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. 2. Beat Egg Whites until they are able to hold their peaks (like whip-cream) Slowly add the sugar, beating it in. It should appear thick and shiny.
  3. 3. Add in Vanilla, Lemon Juice, and Cornstarch gently. Fold them in by scraping the edge of the bowl.
  4. 4. Put mixture into an icing bag, and make a circle on your parchment paper lined baking sheet. Try starting from the center and building out to the edge. There will be a slight depression in the center.
  5. 5. Bake for an hour and let cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. 6. Beat whipping cream until stiff peaks for and fill the depression of the meringue with whipping cream. Cover with fruit of your choice (I like kiwis, but anything tangy pops too)
