This is a great recipe for dessert. It's fairly painless to make; it just takes a little preparation. It's a little rich, but I am a huge fan. The Australian members used to make this for us in Vegas.

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/8 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Whipped Cream
  • Fresh fruit
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Beat egg whites and sugar in a large, clean bowl with electric mixer until stiff peaks form. In separate bowl, mix together vinegar, vanilla and cornstarch until smooth. Pour cornstarch mixture into egg white mixture and beat until thick and glossy, 4 minutes.
  3. Cover a baking sheet in parchment paper. Spoon or pipe mixture inside a drawn 8" circle, to within a little less than an inch from the edge.
  4. Place in preheated oven, REDUCE TEMPERATURE TO 200 DEGREES F , and bake 1 hour. Turn oven off and leave Pavlova to cool inside. Decorate cooled Pavlova with whipped cream and fruit to serve. (Trust me, if you do not decrease the oven temperature, you get a disaster.)
