How do you make best pavlova recipe
- Preheat oven to 275 F. Mark an 8-inch circle on parchment paper with a marker. Then, flip the parchment paper onto a baking tray.
- The egg whites should be whipped first at low speed. Once they are foamy, increase speed and gradually add the sugar to the bowl. Keep whipping the whites until they reach a firm peak with the beaters. Mix the cream of tartar and cornstarch. Fold this into the meringue and then add the vanilla.
- Spread the meringue in the center of the circle. Use a spatula to spread it using an upwards motion. This gives the pavlova a beautiful shape.
- Bake the pavlova in the oven for 60 to 90 minutes. If the meringue is not set to a firm exterior and does not cool, you can return it to the oven for another fifteen to thirty minutes. The bake time will depend on the temperature outside as well as humidity. Bake the pavlova until it starts to brown. The pavlova should be cooled completely on a baking tray.
- To assemble, whip the cream until it reaches a soft peak. Fold in the lemon zest, lemon juice, and sugar. Place the pavlova on a plate using a removable bottom tart pan. Spread the whipped cream onto the top of the pavlova, making sure to not spread it too far. After this, Slice the passion fruit in half, scoop out the juice and seeds and add this to the cream.
- You can bake the pavlova meringue several hours ahead of time, but it should be prepared just before you serve.
