Yield - 8

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 1 hour 20 minutes



  • 6 eggs whites
  • 1½ cups caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar



  1. Preheat oven to 150C. Place the egg white in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk on high speed until soft peaks form. Approx 1 minute.
  2. Add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking (on setting number 7 or medium/high speed) until dissolved before adding the next spoon of sugar.
  3. Once all the sugar has been added (will take 12 - 15 minutes to add all the sugar), scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix the cornflour and vinegar in a small dish and with the beater on low slowly add the cornflour mix into the meringue.
  4. Tip onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Use a dinner plate and pencil to trace a circle. Flip the paper over and shape meringue with a spatula. Reduce temperature to 120C and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes. Leave pavlova in the oven until completely cool. I usually leave pavlova in the oven until cool.
