Pavlova's in Paradise

Pavlova's for all occasions that's us here in New Zealand.  Thank goodness most celebrations we have as a family are at the end and beginning of the year. Otherwise we would be making them all year. Here is my recipe.....

4 egg whites
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup castor sugar
1 Tbsp cornflour
2 tsp vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup cream
Seasonal fruit

* Beat egg whites and salt till stiff peaks form
* Gradually add the castor sugar and beat thoroughly
* You should be able to turn the bowl upside down and the mixture will not fall out
* Add cornflour, vanilla and vinegar and beat thoroughly
* Line tray with baking paper add pavlova mixture in a a circle shape
* Bake at 125 deg C for 1 1/2 hours
* Turn oven off and leave Pavlova in oven until cold
* Whip cream and decorate it

Oops......just a little crack, still tastes good  though!

This is the other Pavlova I make is a chocolate one, it's Nigella's  Chocolate Raspberry Pavlova....very rich and moreish! The Chocolate Raspberry Pavlova recipe can be found here.

The first time we made a Chocolate Pavlova and it does really taste
best with raspberries......
Chocolate Pavlova, a decadent desert....Strawberries were used this
year, raspberries were so expensive. I did buy some to use on
the pavlova but they went mouldy so quik!
