How to make Pavlova Recipe With Strawberries
To begin making the Pavlova Recipe, preheat the oven to 150 C.
Place the egg whites in the bowl of the stand mixer. Maker sure the mixer and the whisk is clean. If it is not, then the egg whites will not form soft peaks.
Beat the eggs whites the mixer until the soft peaks form. Gradually add in the sugar, whisking well until the egg whites look glossy. It will get a shine and not look dull.
Gradually sift in the cornflour and vinegar. This time, don't beat, but just fold through.
Line a baking sheet with non stick butter paper. Using a large ladle, pile the meringue round (about 6 inches in diameter) on the baking tray. Place it in the oven, reduce the oven temperature to 120 C and bake for one hour.
Turn off the oven and allow the meringue to cool in the oven. While the meringues are in the oven it continues to bake further even when the oven is off with the existing heat.
Once the oven is cooled down, cool the meringues completely before storing them in airtight containers.
When you are ready to serve the Pavlova's, whip the mascarpone cheese along with a little sugar (optional) until light and fluffy.
Serve the Pavlovas topped with mascarpone cheese and strawberry compote for parties.
