If you’re looking for an easy dessert that appears to take a lot of effort to create, Pavlova is a great choice. It uses a few simple ingredients and is topped with berries and whipped cream.
How could you go wrong?
2 egg whites
pinch of salt
1/2 cup plus one tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. corn starch
1 tsp. white vinegar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Beat egg whites and salt in a metal bowl on medium speed until soft peaks form.
Gently sprinkle the sugar into the egg whites, one tablespoon at a time. The mixture should now be glossy stiff peaks.
Gently fold in the cornstarch, vinegar and vanilla.
Line a baking sheet with parchment and use a spoon to shape the meringue into a heart (or circle). Make sure the edges are higher than the middle.
Turn the oven down to 250 degrees and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The meringue should be very pale. Turn off the oven and let the meringue cool completely.
Just before serving, remove the meringue from the oven and top with whipped cream and berries.
Serve and enjoy!
