Australian Pavlova Recipe

Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova.[1] It is a meringue dessert with a crisp crust and soft, light inside..It only takes a handful of ingredients, whipped cream and some fresh fruit to create the perfect light summer dessert.Lets enjoy the recipe..

Ingredients for Base :

  • as needed butter, melted 
  • dusting corn flour (cornstarch) 
  • 6 eggs, separated 
  • 280 grams (1¼ cups) sugar, caster (sugar, granulated) 
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence (vanilla extract) 
  • 2 teaspoons corn flour (cornstarch) 
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar 
Method for Base :

1. Preheat your oven to 120°C ( 250°F ). Line an oven tray or flat pan with foil or baking paper (wax paper). Brush with melted butter and dust with cornflour. Shake off the excess. 
2. Take a spoon and gently mark out a 23cm ( 9 inch) diameter circle in the dusted cornflour. This is the guide you will follow when you put the meringue on the pan. (see tip below) 
3. Use an electric mixer to whip the egg whites in a clean dry bowl (see tip below) until soft peaks form. 
4. Very slowly add sugar (about 1 tablespoon at a time) beating well as you go. Continue until all the sugar is fully dissolved (see tip below) and the meringue is thick and glossy. 
5. Now add vanilla, cornflour and vinegar to your meringue. Beat only until these new ingredients are mixed in thoroughly. 
6. Spoon the meringue into the circle you marked on the foil lined pan. Using a small spatula, smooth the side and top of the Pavlova base and make little peaks around the top edge. 
7. Bake for 1 to 1½ hours or until it feels dry to the touch. 
8. Turn off the oven and leave the door ajar with the Pavlova base still inside to cool down slowly. 
9. When the base is completely cold, move it to a serving plate. You can also store it in an airtight container to complete later as needed.

Ingredients for Top :
  • 300 ml (1¼ cups) whipping cream (heavy cream) 
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar, sifted 
  • 1 lime, juiced 
  • 2 bananas, sliced thin on an angle 
  • 3 kiwi, peeled, thinly sliced 
  • 2 star fruit, thinly sliced
