  • 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.
