Strawberry Pavlova Recipe

What you needs:

3 egg whites
1 pinch cream of tartar
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups whipping cream
4 cups strawberries (raspberries, peaches or blueberries can also be used)


1. In a large bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until glossy peaks form. Beat in vanilla.
2 . On foil-lined baking sheet, spread meringue into a 10-inch circle, pushing up edges to form a slight ridge.
3 . Bake in a 275-degree oven for 1 1/2 hours or until firm to the touch. Turn off oven and leave meringue in oven to dry. Remove foil, and let cool. Place on serving platter.
4 . Slice the strawberries. Just before serving, spread whipped cream over meringue and cover with fruit. Cut into wedges.

Tips: When making meringue, add the caster sugar very slowly to the egg whites so they incorporate it evenly. If the filling starts to lumpy as you heat it, remove the pan from the cooker and beat hard. Press the greaseproof over the surface of the filling to stop it forming a skin. Assemble the pavlova no more than 1 hour before serving so the meringue stays crisp.
You can also use any fruit or a mix, its just strawberry is my favourite one.
