  • 6 egg whites
  • 350 gr icing sugar
  • 2 tea spoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tea spoons of starch
  • 500 ml double cream
  • vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
  • pomegranate (or other fruits and berries of your choice)


    1. In a large, clean and dry bowl beat the egg whites with a tiny pinch of salt till they turn into thick white foam. Gradually add the sugar in two or three steps while continuing to beat. Beat till the sugar is absorbed and the meringue is glossy and holds shape well.
    2. Cover a baking sheet with baking paper. Place the meringue on the sheet and give it a round shape (some 5-6 cm thick).
    3. Bake at 150C for 1 hour. Switch off the oven and leave the meringue inside till completely cool. Then transfer to a serving dish.
    4. Whip the cream with vanilla till it hold soft peaks. Up to 1 hour before serving fill the Pavlova with whipped cream and sprinkle with pomegranate arils.

Australia is my dad's favorite place in the world. I grew up with stories about this amazing country. He used to say that Pavlova was created in Australia after the world tour visit of Anna Pavlova, a Russian ballerina. The dessert was feather-light as she was. Read more about it on my blog.
