Recipe Directions

For the Pavlova

  1. Preheat your oven on bake at 140°C.

  2. Beat all the ingredients on high in a glass bowl for 10 minutes until you get a glossy thick white mixture or until the mix doesn't fall off the whisk when you hold it facing down.

  3. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and gently pour the pavlova mixture in the centre in the form of a cake. Feel free to mould a small crater shape in the centre of the pavlova with your spatula so that you have a section to fill with your toppings once it’s set.

  4. Bake for 30 mins at 140°C. bake for another 30 mins at 120°C. Turn the oven off and allow it to set for 1 hour. The baking times are crucial so take extra care and get your timer or alarms set.

To serve
