Here's the list with all the ingredients you'll need:
- Whites from 3 medium eggs
- 1 1/2 cups caster sugar
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp white vinegar
- 1/2 qt whipped cream
- 1 orange, segmented
- 2 kiwis, sliced
- 6-8 large strawberries, halved
1. Begin by preheating your oven to 170°F (75°C).
2. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. This is crucial for the pavlova's texture.
3. Gradually add the caster sugar while continuing to beat. The mixture should become shiny and hold stiff peaks.
4. Gently fold in the cornstarch and white vinegar. This helps stabilize the meringue and add crispiness.
5. Prepare a flat baking sheet by greasing it lightly with butter and covering it with parchment paper.
6. Spoon the meringue mixture onto the parchment paper, forming a circle. Make sure to shape the edges higher than the center to create a slight hollow in the middle.
7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes. The pavlova should be dry to the touch and a pale cream color.
8. Turn off the oven and let the pavlova cool inside, with the door slightly ajar. This prevents cracks from forming.
9. Once cooled, gently remove the pavlova from the parchment paper and transfer it to a serving plate.
10. Top the pavlova with whipped cream, spreading it within the hollow.
11. Decorate with orange segments, sliced kiwi, and halved strawberries.
12. Serve the pavlova as a stunning centerpiece for your dessert table.
