Points to remember
- Whisk egg whites to stiff peaks.
- Start whisking egg whites on a slow speed to create small air bubbles that will give you a more stable pavlova.
- Re-whisk egg whites to stiff peaks after every addition of sugar.
- Bake low and slow on the bottom shelf of the oven To check the pavlova is cooked, make sure it peels away from the paper easily.
MAKING PAVLOVAMake sure your meringue equipment is really clean and grease-free.
