Mini Pavlovas

These Meringues have been known to convert non-meringue lovers into big fans! – I’m not sure if it’s the small nature of them – the fluffy yet satisfyingly chewy centers or the crisp shells! (Or if they are just eating the meringue to get to the whipped cream & berry filling!!) Either way, they are a great dessert and a wonderful addition to a buffet or summer menu! They also happen to be my favorite dessert of all time!       So let me know how they go down at your next event!

Ingredients:

  • 3 Large egg whites
  • 175g sugar
  • 0.25 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 275 F
  2. Whisk egg whites until they create soft peaks
  3. Add sugar slowly whilst still whisking
  4. Add vanilla extract and fold in
  5. Line a baking tray (or two) and spoon the mixture into 6 rounds – you can pipe it, but it may affect the fluffy nature of the finished meringue – and if you work at it you can create pretty rose like patterns with the back of a spoon.
  6. Bake for 1 hour.
  7. Once ready, let the meringues cool & then whip some cream and chop some berries
  8. Assemble the mini pavlovas & serve the beautiful little desserts.
