EmBakes- Strawberry Pavlova

Hello Everybody,
Strawberry pavlova is definitely one of my most popular desserts that I make when people come round our house for dinner. I also find my strawberry pavlova one of the most enjoyable things to make. Not only that, but I think it's a can't go wrong recipe, because *touchwood* I am not yet to burn it.
Another reason why I think many people love this pudding is because it is really light and is totally sweet.

Strawberry Pavlova recipe

Ingredients

For the meringue
3 egg whites
175g caster sugar
1tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp cornflour
for the filling
A large carton of whipping cream
2 punnets of strawberrys sliced

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 130'c. Using a dessert plate as a guide, draw a 20cm circle on a sheet of baking parchment. Turn over the paper and use it to line the baking tray.
  2. Seperate the eggs very carefully, putting the whites into an absolutely clean, dry, large bowl.
  3. Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add half the sugar and whisk until the meringue is stiff and glossy.
  4. Gradully whisk in the remaining sugar, then the vinegar and cornflour.
  5. Use a metal spoon to spread the meringue within the marked circle and make a slight hollow in the centre to hold the filling later. Bake for hour or until crisp outside and soft inside. Allow to cool on a baking tray.
  6. Use a metal spatula or fish slice to ease the pavlova off the paper and onto its serving plate before starting to fill and decorate it.
  7. For the filling, whisk the cream until it is stiff and pile it into the hollow of the meringue case.
  8. Finally, scatter the strawberrys onto the whipped cream.
Bon appetit, et toodles,
