Pavlova is chewy on top, crisp on the edges, and soft and creamy in the center. You can also pile it high with cream and fresh fruits. It is a show-stopper, indeed.


Units Scale

4 large egg whites

1 1/4 c. white sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. lemon juice

2 tsp. cornstarch

1pint heavy cream

Fresh fruits (for topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and then line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw a 9-inch circle on the parchment paper.
  2. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry in a large bowl. Gradually add the sugar (about 1 tablespoon at a time). Beat well after each addition. Beat until thick and glossy and then gently fold in vanilla extract, cornstarch, and lemon juice.
  3. Spoon mixture inside the circle drawn on the parchment paper. Spread mixture, working from the center toward the edge. Slightly build the edge, leaving a slight depression in the center.
  4. Bake for about an hour.
  5. Let cool on a wire rack.
  6. Beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form in a small bowl. Set aside.
  7. Remove the parchment paper and place meringue on a serving platter.
  8. Fill the center with whipped cream and then top with your choice of fresh fruits.


  • For the fruits, you can utilize kiwi slices, strawberries, pineapple, mango, or a combination of any of these. You can utilize pretty much any fruit that you want.
