"This dessert is fun to make and eat. Fresh fruit, especially berries and kiwis, balances the sweet, gooey crunch."

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  3. Whisk sugar and cornstarch in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Beat egg whites in a bowl until they are foamy and have a thick, ribbony texture, 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Pour 1/4 of the sugar mixture into the egg whites; whisk until completely incorporated, about 30 seconds. Repeat for the rest of the sugar mixture, whisking after each addition, until all of the sugar mixture is incorporated and the egg whites are glossy and thick.
  6. Pour vanilla and vinegar into egg white mixture; whisk until you can lift your beater or whisk straight up and the egg whites form a sharp peak that holds its shape, 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Spoon egg white mixture onto prepared baking sheet; spread out into a 2-inch high by 6-inch wide disc.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
  9. Turn off the oven, crack open the oven door and let the Pavlova cool for one hour.
  10. Whip cream, sugar, and vanilla extract in a bowl until soft peaks form, 3 to 4 minutes.
  11. Transfer Pavlova to a serving plate. Top with whipped cream and fresh strawberries.

Made this tonight with no modifications and it turned out great. I've never had pavlova before, and found it to be a perfect warm weather dessert. The video was extremely helpful with getting th...

Fantastic dessert! It's like nothing I've tasted before. Be sure to wait a full hour for this to cool - I got anxious and rushed this part; I think my Pavlova would have been a tad taller had ...
