Here is the recipe for the pavlova that was mentioned on Cielo's blog, "The House in the Roses". This dessert is one of the many delicious desserts in a post titled, 'Desserts from Across the Globe.' The pavlova was named in honour of the famous ballerina, Anna Pavlova and is Australia's national favorite.
The fact that it is so disgustingly easy to make is really too boring even to mention.
Whys and Wherefores 4 egg whites - no yellow specks (fish them out) or it won't beat up stiff. 3/4 cup white sugar - to make the meringue outside and give sweetness 1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tartar - to make the egg whites stiffen up 1 and a 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar - to make it marshmallowy inside.
Hint: Don't use a plastic mixing bowl or the egg whites won't whip up stiffly.
BASIC RECIPE 4 egg whites beaten stiff 3/4 cup white sugar 1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tartar 1 and a 1/2 teaspoons of white vinegar
Method: Add sugar to beaten egg whites and beat again Then add Cream of Tartar and vinegar Grease tinfoil and make a 'nest' shape with the mixture Place in oven 125 degrees celsius ( no higher) for 1 hour Then turn oven off and leave until oven has cooled (It really dries the mixture out rather than cooking it.)
Whip up some cream and spoon into the meringue case and top with whatever seasonal fruit takes your fancy. Enjoy!
