1 teaspoon white vinegar

½ tablespoon cornstarch

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Method

Preheat oven to 130°C and position rack in centre of oven. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Use whisk attachment to beat egg whites on low-medium speed until they hold soft peaks.

Start adding the Natvia, a tablespoon at a time, tasting after 80g, and continue to beat on high until meringue holds very stiff and shiny white peaks and tastes sweet enough.

Sprinkle the vinegar and cornstarch over the top of the meringue and use spatula to fold in gently.

Spread meringue to desired shape on baking paper, smoothing the edges. Leave centre slightly hollowed to hold topping.

Bake for 50-75mins or until the outside is dry and a very pale cream colour.*

When done to preference turn oven off, leave door slightly ajar and let cool completely in oven.

The cooled meringue can be stored in a cool dry place in an airtight container for a few days.

Just before serving place meringue on a serving plate.

Whip the cream until soft peaks form, sweeten with extra Natvia and vanilla then spread into center of meringue.

Arrange fruit and add garnish as preferred.

Tips and Tricks

*If the meringue starts to brown in the first 10mins, reduce heat (you may need to open door slightly to reduce heat to new temperature quickly).

Will only hold a couple of hours after topping so serve immediately.

Love pavlova, made the very first one last year with some cherries on top. This one looks so good, the strawberries should be another yummy topping :)
