With Love ... Happy Valentines Day

I made this just for you ...

Well actually I made this one for Ian, Alice, Ja Young, Sam, Sylvia, Andrew, Louise (especially Louise), Amelia and Grady yesterday -  an early Valentine's lunch.
You still have time to rustle one up today for the person/people you love.

Pavlova has to be the easiest dessert to make with a bit of a 'Wow" factor.
For this size (10 people)

  • 5 egg whites (room temperature)
  • 10 oz (280gm) white sugar (caster or granulated)
  • 400 ml (2 cups)  whipping/double cream
  • Strawberries
  • Set oven to 125C

  1. Whisk the egg whites till they form stiff peaks in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the sugar 2 Tbsp at a time and whisk well after each addition.
  3. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and grease lightly with flavourless oil.
  4. Spoon the meringue mixture onto the sheet and shape into a heart.
  5. Take a thin skewer and twirl the edges to makes little peaks (looks good)
  1. Put in the oven - lower than middle shelf and cook for 1 hour @ 125C. Then turn off the oven and leave meringue in there for at least 2  more hours or even better overnight. This will just let it dry more without browning.
  2.  Take the meringue out, find a big plate and add whipped cream and strawberries and present it to the ones you love.

To make a smaller one just use 3 egg whites and 6 oz (170gm) of sugar.

♥ Hope your day is filled with hearts
