Our family pavlova recipe with a few tweaks I have added over the years. decorate with whipped cream and fresh fruit.

Foxglove Victoria, Australia

Serves: 8 

  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 rounded dessert spoon (two teaspoons) cornflour
  • 1/8 teapoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • pinch salt

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:1hour30min  ›  Extra time:30min cooling  ›  Ready in:2hours10min 

  1. Warm mixing bowl and crack 6 eggs (whites only) into the bowl and add the pinch of salt
  2. Put mixer on high using the beater connection and beat egg whites until stiff peaks form
  3. Gradually add half of the sugar and continue to beat until well combined
  4. Add the cream of tartar and the cornflour
  5. Turn off mixer and with a metal spoon fold in the other half of the sugar , the vanilla essence and the vinegar.
  6. Sprinkle baking paper with some extra cornflour.
  7. Carefully scoop mixture onto baking paper and form a circle to the height or width you want. Make sure you do it evenly or it will be harder to cook without burning bits.
  8. In a slow oven cook pavlova at 140 cel non fan forced for approx 1 and a half hours. Times and temperatures will vary due to oven heat. You are aiming for a nice crisp outside and a nice moist inside cooked but not too firm.
  9. When pavlova is fully cool remove paper and decorate with whipped cream and fresh fruit. I dont add sugar to my cream when i whip it for a pavlova as it is sweet enough.


Allow pavlova to cool in oven to reduce cracking.
