Australians and New Zealanders both claim Pavlova to be their own. It is named after a famous Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova. The meringue is crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. Best made on a day without high humidity.

    sugar (extra fine, if available)

How to Make Pavlova II


  1. Cover baking tin with parchment paper and trace a 7 inch circle on it.
    Preheat oven to 250ºF.
  2. MERINGUE: Beat egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form. Add sugar a few tablespoons at a time, beating well before adding more. When all sugar has dissolved and egg whites hold a stiff peak, add vanilla and vinegar. Beat well.
  3. Spoon the meringue onto the circle that you marked on the parchment. Spread evenly over the circle but make a little ridge around the perimeter.
  4. Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until firm to touch. Turn off oven and let meringue cool in the oven with the door slightly ajar.
  5. Whip cream in a chilled bowl. (Sweeten with a little sugar if desired). Spread whipped cream on top of cooled meringue. Wash and slice fruit and arrange on top of the whipped cream. Serve immediately!
