It made me smile when I heard they were serving vegemite sandwiches and lamingtons in the commentry box at the cricket today.
I like my pavalova crunchy on the outside and meringue in the centre, this one is not too sweet.
Recipe: 6 egg whites at room temp.
pinch cream of tartar
1&3/4 cup of caster sugar
1 teas vanilla
2 teas white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon cornflour
Beat the egg white and cream of tartar till soft peaks, add caster sugar one tablespoon at a time it will be thick and glossy, and take about 10mins. Add vanilla, vinegar and cornflour, till just mixed. spoon out on to round baking tray lined with baking paper. about 30cm in diameter. Bake in slow oven 125-150c for a hour, turn off oven and leave door ajar for another 2 hours. Spead whipped cream over when cold, and decorate with whatever ever fruit you like, my kiddo's love passionfruit, strawberrys, mango, and raspberries.
