Instructables

Step 1: Ingredients

Ingredients:

4 egg whites
pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 tsp. vinegar
Sliced fruit
Cool Whip in a can

Utensils:
Wax paper
pan
bowl(s)
measuring spoons
Spatula or wooden spoon



Step 2: Getting Started

Picture of Getting Started
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F and line a baking pan with waxed paper. If you'd like, you can trace a 7" bowl on the wax paper to mark where your pavlova is going to be.

Step 3: Mix!

In a medium bowl, take your eggs and seperate the yolk from the whites. Beat your egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Add 1/3 cup of the sugar and beat until sugar is dissolved and the mixture is very thick. Add the rest of the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition. When the sugar is dissolved and the mixture stiff, add the vanilla and vinegar. The mixture should be thick and glossy, like a meringue.

Step 4: Put On Pan

Spoon the meringue into the circle traced on the wax paper.Using the back of a spoon, spread out the meringue evenly, within the circle, building up the sides.


Step 5: Bake

Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until firm to the touch. Turn off the oven and cool the pavlova in the oven for about 30 more minutes, leaving the door open an inch.

You forgot the passionfruit! It's not a real pav without it being drowned in passion fruit! Also, it's soooooo not healthy. It's basically a pile of sugar and cream. Delicious, but not healthy by anyone's standard.
pav is a kiwi thing, NOT AUSSIE

you have to ad a cup of sugar and whipe cream so I dont think it is verry healthy...
Yeah, having had it quite a few times.. its not the healthiest thing there is. I would simple call it a desert (I hope thats spelled correctly) rather than a cake.

Your heading should read 'Pavlova is a sweet cake from NEW ZEALAND  that is healthy too' ....a recipe was published in 1929 in NZ but didn't appear in Auz until 1935, at which time they claimed it as their own. An earlier example exists from NZ (and then published in Auz) from 1926, but while the ingrediants are similar it was called “Meringue with Fruit Filling.”
It's a pretty popular dessert in New Zealand too.  I had it several times when I was there a few years ago and it was delicious!  It would be really great to make it at home.  Thanks for the recipe!
