Delicious as a special treat, but all that sugar and cream does outweigh the benefit of the fresh fruit.
  • 6 large egg whites at room temperature
  • a pinch of salt
  • 360g (12 1/4oz) caster sugar
  • 2 tsp corn flour
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 300ml (10oz) double cream
  • strawberries,  blueberries, kiwi or any yummy fruit to decorate


  • Electric whisk
  • Spoon
  • Bowl
  • Baking paper
  • Flat tray


Making and cooking it
Always wash your hands before preparing food Always wash your hands before preparing food.

  1. Put the oven on 180 degrees
  2. Cut a round circle of baking paper and put on a tray ready for the meringue
  3. Crack the egg whites into a bowl with the salt
  4. Beat the eggs with an electric whisk until they go firm or turn the bowl upside down above your head and if the egg whites do not splay you on the head they are whisked to perfection!! (editor' note: they might well drop out anyway - so beware!)
  5. Start whisking in the sugar a bit at at time, being careful not to over whisk
  6. Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet, spreading it to the edges and making a little well in the centre
  7. Place in the oven for 5 minutes then turn the heat down to 120 and cook for 75 minutes
  8. You must leave it in the oven to completely cool, as this will give the pavlova its sticky gooey texture
  9. Whip the double cream and spread lots on the pavlova and pile on lots of scrummy fruit
