Jaded spoon


Another Aussie traditional dessert though the Kiwis (New Zealanders)will argue with me on this. It's a bain of contention as to who invented this... who ever did it is a wonderful dessert. Thoough traditional fruits used are strawberries, kiwi fruit and passionfruit you can add any fruit or berry you want to it. I often just use raspberries and it still tastes wonderful

How to Make Pavlova


  • 1Preheat oven to 120°C/100°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Mark a 23cm circle on the paper.
  • 2Using an electric mixer, beat eggwhites until stiff peaks form. Add caster sugar. Beat for 10 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Add cream of tartar. Beat for 1 minute. Spoon mixture onto circle. Using a palette knife or spatula, shape into a circle with high sides. Make 'furrows' up the sides.
  • 3Bake for 1 hour or until firm. Turn off oven. Allow to cool in oven with door slightly ajar.
  • 4Using an electric mixer, beat cream, icing sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form. Place pavlova on a serving plate. Top with cream mixture and fruit. Serve.

    Tip: Cream of tartar increases the volume of eggwhites when beating and gives the pavlova a crispy crust.
