Pavlova with Cream and Mixed Berries

 

 

Pavlova with cream makes an elegant dessert, but its simplicity also makes it perfect for just about any occasion, even a simple family dinner. The meringues are light and crispy with just a hint of chewiness in the middle. They have a perfect balance of sweetness that goes great with some berries. I like to make individual Pavlovas, but you can also make one large Pavlova for a beautiful and impressive presentation. A traditional dessert, Pavlova with cream is delicious topped with a variety of mixed berries. Of course, there are also many variations. For example, sometimes I like to use a homemade lemon curd to top some of the Pavlovas, then I add a layer of whipped cream and some mixed berries. Delicious!

 

 

 

Pavlova

Pavlova

Ingredients:

4 large egg whites
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp corn starch
2 cups heavy cream
fresh berries

Instructions:

    Preheat oven to 300˚ F.
    Draw a 9-inch circle on a piece of parchment paper or draw 4 4-inch circles for individual meringues. Flip parchment paper over so pencil marks are on the bottom and place paper on a baking sheet.
  1. In large mixer bowl, beat egg whites until they are stiff. Add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; beat well after each addition. Continue beating until the egg whites are thick and glossy. With a rubber spatula, fold in the vanilla, lemon juice and cornstarch.
  2. Spoon meringue mixture inside the circles; use the spoon to build up the edges a bit. The meringues should have a small indentation in the center. Alternatively, the beaten egg whites can be placed in an icing bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe the meringues starting in the center and working towards the outside edge, building up the edge to create a bowl shape.
  3. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and gently place on wire rack to cool completely.
  4. In a mixer bowl, beat the cream until stiff peaks form.
  5. To Assemble:
  6. Gently place the meringue on a serving dish. Fill the center with whipped cream and top with berries.
