Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil, and trace an 8 inch circle onto the surface.
  2. In a small cup or bowl, stir together the sugar, cornstarch, and cream of tartar. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip the egg whites with salt, vanilla, and vinegar until soft peaks form. Gradually sprinkle in the sugar mixture and continue to whip until stiff and shiny. Mound the mixture into the traced circle on the baking sheet. Flatten the top and smooth the sides using a metal spatula.
  3. Place in the preheated oven, and immediately reduce the heat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until a pale golden brown. Turn off the oven, and leave the door slightly ajar with the pavlova inside until completely cooled.
  4. Just before serving time, invert the cooled pavlova onto a serving plate, and top with slices of banana. Cover banana with caramel sauce. Top that with whipped cream and sprinkle with grated chocolate.

Wow! Pleasantly surprised! Neither MrB or I are huge meringue fans (which explains why I'm not great at making it), but we both really loved this. No egginess! The crispy meringue blends beautifully with the soft, gooey caramel and bananas and the fluffy whipped cream. YUM. I served this a little differently because there were just 3 of us and I didn't want the leftover meringue to get soggy. I cut the meringue into pie slices, spooned the bananas and caramel on each slice, and then topped with whipped cream and chopped chocolate. Oh boy. Straight to my fanny. :) Thanks for the recipe!

Amazing!!! This was my first experience with pavlova, and before I tried it I thought that the meringue part would be just kind of tasteless, but to those of you who don't know like I didn't, it is a rich, warm, toasty, delicious flavor! Combined with the caramel and bananas, it becomes something absolutely fabulous that is sure to impress all guests! I just made this for my family today, but next time we have guests over, I am making this! Thanks Trish, love it!

Doubled the recipe and made a three-tier torte with whip cream and bananas spread between layers and on top. Topped with more whipped cream, and instead of the chocolate chips and caramel, I crushed up chocolate toffee Heath Bar and sprinkled it over the top of the torte. This was really delicious! This can also be made with strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries and chocolate.
