Pavlova Recipe
  • 6 egg whites, from large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
Strawberry Sauce (will make more than needed for recipe)
  • 1/2 lb strawberries, rinsed, cut up into 4
  • 2.5 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
Whipped Chantily Cream
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups strawberries cut into quarters
How to make Strawberry Pavlova
  1. Whip meringue: In a large mixer bowl combine the egg whites, cream of tartar and sugar then whip for 15-20 minutes or until the meringue looks glossy, and has stiff peaks (whichever comes last).

  2. Prep: Meanwhile preheat the oven to 350F, with the baking rack in the middle. Using a pencil trace an 8-inch circle on a piece of parchment, turn it over and set over a baking sheet. Set aside.

  3. Transfer & Bake: Transfer the whipped meringue into the traced 8-inch circle on parchment, trying to stay within the edges. Transfer to the oven and reduce the heat to 225F. Bake for 1 hour. Then turn the heat off and allow to cool for 30 minutes before removing from the oven and allowing to cool completely.

  4. While the pavlova is baking make the Strawberry Sauce following the instructions HERE.

How to make the Chantily Cream
  1. Combine the whipping cream and vanilla extract in a bowl of mixer, then whip until soft peaks form.

Layer the Pavlova
  1. Carefully transfer the pavlova meringue to the serving platter. Top with the Chantily cream, then spread 1/2 cup of the Strawberry Sauce. Lastly, sprinkle with 2 cups of chopped, fresh strawberries.
