Pavlova 2

This makes a small size pavlova for 4-6 people. Double the mix for a good family size pavlova.

2 egg whites (large eggs)
1 ½ cup sugar (C&H is finest)
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon cornflour (cornstarch)
4 tablespoons boiling water

Put in a bowl and beat until peaks form and are very very stiff.
Bake at 300° for 10 min & 200° for 1 hour.
Top with freshly whipped cream , strawberries, kiwi and passionfruit.
Leave in oven to cool, do not open oven door during cooking. Put on lightly greased foil covered flat tray. Heap the mixture in center as high as you can, use spatula to raise the sides as high as you can make them. Make sure no egg shells get in and make sure bowl is freshly cleaned and dried.

Recipe from Annette Smith who got it from Barbara Baker, both Aussies
