Mmmmm pavlova !

Well I haven't before blogged my food and quite frankly Scotty thought I was nuts taking a photo of it, but here it is in all it's glory, one of the things I can quite frankly say has never failed me. My pavlova. This recipe truly is the easiest thing to make and looks and tastes spectacular. Try it !

Easy Pavlova

3 egg whites
1 1/2 cups castor sugar
1/2 tspn vanilla essence
1 tspn vinegar
1 tspn cornflour
4 tblspns boiling water

Place all ingredients into bowl of electric mixer, beat on high speed until mixture is very stiff (approx 15 minutes). Spread onto a prepared tray.

This mixture makes one 28cm approx pavlova.

Electric Oven
Bake in moderate oven 10 minutes. Reduce heat to slow, bake further 45 minutes, cool in oven.

Gas Oven
Bake in moderate oven 10 minutes. Reduce heat to slow and bake a further 1 to 1 1/2 hours, cool in oven.
