This is a simple recipe, perfect for any household – thanks to ALDI.
4 egg whites, room temperature
1 cup Caster sugar
1 tsp white vinegar
2 tsp White Mill cornflour
300ml Farmdale thickened cream
Fresh fruit, washed and sliced (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries & peaches)
1. In a small electric mixer bowl, beat egg whites on medium until soft peaks form.
2. Add vinegar, cornflour and gently sprinkle sugar, one teaspoon at a time, beating until stiff and glossy (approx. 10 mins)
3. Trace map of Australia onto baking paper and cut out shape. Place cut-out onto a baking tray and spoon meringue mix inside the map. Smooth sides and top of meringue with a spatula, leaving he centre slightly hollowed. Bake in over at 130°C for 1 ½ hours, or until pavlova is dry to the touch.
4. Turn off oven and leave pavlova to cool with oven door ajar. Once cooled, place pavlova on a serving plate. Use electric mixer to whip cream until soft peaks form. Gently spread whipped cream on top of meringue and decorate with fresh fruit.
