This week I made a pavlova.  I made it because we had a huge pineapple from our garden!

Here is the recipe to make pavlova:

4 egg whites
pinch of salt
200g caster sugar
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp vanilla essence
1tsp lemon juice
carton cream
fresh fruits

Preheat oven to 140C
Add salt to egg whites+whisk until very stiff
Gradually add sugar, whisking until very stiff
Stir in cornflour, vanilla+lemon
Spoon onto baking sheet+form 3cm deep circle
Bake 1hr until looks pale brown+ hard to touch
Cool+top with cream and fruit

I found cracking the eggs hard because I accidently let some of the yolk in!
I also found whisking a bit hard because I couldn't keep my arm up for long!!

I hope you like it to!

  3. Wowzers! I remember trying to whisk egg whites by hand one time a few years ago... you are a champ! And a fresh pineapple from your garden? Thanks amazing! Way to go, girl!!!

  4. Pavlova is one of my all time favourite deserts and yours looks amazing!

    I think you are very clever to have made this, I'm not even sure I am confident enough to attempt it.

    Well done!
