I Heart Cooking Clubs : Mini Pavlovas

This week for I Heart Cooking Clubs the theme is Baker's Delight and I chose these Mini Pavlovas which I knew would please everybody ! I found the recipe in How to be a Domestic Goddess and used pomegranate seeds and strawberries for the toppings.

Mini Pavlovas
(Makes 18)

8 egg whites

a pinch of salt
500g caster sugar
4 tsp corn flour
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line 3 baking trays with baking paper.

Beat the egg whites and salt until the miixture form satiny peaks. Keep beating the egg whites while adding sugar little at a time until the meringue is stiff and shiny. Sprinkle over the corn flour, vinegar and vanilla extract. Fold in gently.

Form round meringues on the trays lined with baking paper, around 10 cm a cross and 1.5 cm high. Make an indentation in the middle of every pavlova with the back of a spoon. Put in the trays in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 150°C. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the Pavlovas inside for 1.5-2 hours.

Serve the Pavlovas with whipped cream, fresh fruit .

(Makes 18)
