This is a meringue-based (putih telur) recipe named after a russian ballet dancer, Anna Pavlova who toured to New Zealand and Australia in 1926. There is a long standing debate about whether New Zealand or Australia invented this dessert, which has yet to be resolved.

Pavlova (Pav) is a meringue cake that has a light and delicate crisp crust and a soft sweet marshmallow. To offset the sweetness of the meringue we put fresh tart fruits such as strawberries, passion fruit, kiwi, orange, grapes, blueberries or other fruit of your choice.

Because the pavlova need time to bake and cool, you have to start making it about 6 hours before serve. The best way is made the pavlova several days in advance of serving and store it in an airtight container.  Try to place the whipped cream and fruit on the meringue shortly before serving as the Pavlova will immediately start to soften and break down from the moisture of the cream and fruit.

The best to cook the meringue in a slow oven 130'c and when the oven turn off, let the meringue cool slowly and completely inside the oven and leave the oven door close.  

This picture below show the pavlova texture,  the outside of the meringue will feel firm to the touch, if gently pressed, but as it cools you will get a little cracking and you will see that the inside is soft and marshmallowy.

for 2 pavlova shell 9"

Ingredients A :
6 white eggs (210 gr)

Ingredients B:
230 gr castor sugar

Ingredients c :
1.5 tsp vanilla extract/powder/flavour
1.5 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp corn flour


1. Heat up the oven to 130'c
2. Cover the baking tray with a sheet of baking paper. Use a round cake pan or cake board with 9" (23 cm) diameter across to draw a circle of it on the baking paper.
3. Put the egg whites in the bowl beat with medium speed, and pour in the castor sugar in it gradually.
4. add in the ingredients C into the batter, beat again until stiff, shiny and fluffy. The sugar has to fully dissolved by rubbing a little of the meringue between your thumb and index finger. The meringue should feel smooth, not gritty. If it feels gritty the sugar has not fully dissolved so keep beating until it feels smooth between your fingers.
5.  Spread the meringue inside the circle drawn on the baking paper, smoothing the edges, making sure the edges of the meringue are slightly higher than the center, because we want to place the whipped cream and fruit.
