Festive Pavlova

Festive Pavlova


2 tablespoon corn flour
3 cups of caster sugar
2 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 egg whites
8 tablespoons of boiled water
2 cartons double cream
Fruit for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 155 degrees C or 302 F
  • Mix corn flour with the caster sugar in a bowl
  • Add the teaspoons of vinegar, vanilla and the seperated egg whites
  • Mix until just combined and then add the boiling water
  • Now whisk the mixture until it is very thick... you're better to use an electric whisk as it does take time!
  • You will know the mixture is ready when it forms stiff peaks- if you're brave tip it upside down to see if it's stiff enough!
  • Cover a baking tray with baking paper and scoop the mixture into the centre and form a circle shape with it- this should be about 3 inches thick
  • Cook for 1 and a half hours- it will be slightly chewy inside still
  • Leave to cool on a baking rack- be careful when moving it- it's ok if it cracks a bit it's not supposed to look perfect!
  • You can top with whipped cream and whatever kind of fruit you fancy- strawberries, kiwi fruit, bananas, peaches, canned fruit cocktail... let you imagination run away with you!
