This Easy Pavlova is a light, meringue dessert with a delicate, crisp outer texture and a soft, marshmallow-like center! Topped with fresh whipped cream and mixed berries.
- 5 egg whites
- 1 1/4 cup sugar granulated
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 cup whipped cream
- 1/2 cup strawberries sliced
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup raspberries
Preheat the oven to 300F. Separate the egg whites from yolks. Discard the yolks and let the whites come to room temperature.
Add the whites to the bowl of a stand mixer or a large bowl with a hand mixer. Beat until they form soft peaks. You'll know you've reached this stage when the whites are foamy and hold a peak when you lift the beaters out of the bowl with the tip of the peak folding over.
Continuing to beat the egg whites, add the sugar 1 tbsp at a time. Once all the sugar has been added, beat for another 3 minutes until the whites are thick and glossy.
Add the vanilla, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Beat for 5-10 more seconds or fold the ingredients in with a spatula.
Trace a circle with an 8" diameter on a sheet of parchment paper, then place the parchment paper on a baking sheet. Spoon the whipped egg whites from the middle of the circle and spread the mixture gently to the edges of the drawn circle, leaving a slight depression in the middle of the pavlova.
Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 1 hour. Let it cool for 5 minutes on the sheet pan, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Top the pavlova with whipped cream, then arrange berries over top. Use a sharp knife to slice and serve.
- Store leftover Pavlova in a cool, dry place. Store in an airtight container on your counter, in a pantry, or in a cupboard where temperature and humidity are consistent, for up to 2 days! Make sure to keep your pavlova away from your stove and other sources of heat and moisture.
