Easy Australian Pavlova Recipe

Ingredients
For the Pavlova Meringue
  1. 6 egg whites
  2. 1 ¾ cup caster sugar
  3. 1 heaped tsp corn flour
  4. 1 tsp vinegar
  5. 1 tsp vanilla essence

For the Whipped Cream
  1. 400 g thickened cream
  2. 1/3 cup caster sugar
  3. 1 tsp vanilla essence

Optional Toppings
  1. 1 punnet strawberries
  2. 1 kiwifruit
  3. 1 banana
  4. 1 passionfruit
  5. icing sugar to dust

Instructions
  • First up, preheat your oven to 150˚ Celsius and line your tray with baking paper.
  • Pop your egg whites into the KitchenAid mixing bowl and attach the whisk.
  • Start by whipping the egg whites on Speed 2 then move through to Speed 4 after a couple of minutes. When the egg whites turn into bubbly soft peaks, up the speed to 6 and add the sugar and cornflour, then increase to Speed 8 for 10 – 12 minutes until you’ve got yourself a luxuriously smooth, glossy meringue mixture.
  • Now bring the speed right down to 4 and pour in the vinegar and vanilla essence. You might need to scrape down the meringue from the sides of the bowl every now and again with a spatula to make sure it mixes through. Let it mix for 1 minute then switch off your KitchenAid.
