A Pavlova recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 175 g castor sugar (or icing sugar)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp. vinegar
  • 1 tsp.corn flour

Method:

Beat the egg white with the pinch of salt to a stiff texture, then start adding the sugar a little a time, then add the remaining ingredients until a very firm consistency is reached. Pour into a lined tin and bake at 140 degree Celsius for app. 45 minutes. Cool down and decorate with copious amounts of sweetened whipped cream and fruit of your choice.

Tips:

The top will be crunchier than the bottom, so you might like to turn the baked meringue upside down before starting to garnish. A little drizzle of Grand Marnier or Cointreau liquor (e.g. into the whipped cream) will add back a bit of European flair and flavour (or would this be heresy to you Antipodeans?)
