Mix powdered sugar with caster sugar.
Beat the egg whites with the salt powder, then gradually add the sugar and continue to mix until the meringue is "beaten", then add the vinegar, mix and then add the starch. Homogenize the composition and put it in a bag or use a spoon.
In a tray lined with baking paper, form meringue circles with slightly higher edges (so that we have a hole in the middle).
I got 9 pieces out of this composition.
Heat the oven to 200 ° and when we are ready to put the meringue in the oven, leave it at 110 °, then put the meringue for about 50-60 minutes, then let it cool.
Mix whipped cream and cream with vanilla, add the strawberry peel (put as much as necessary to get the cream a pink color), cut the fruit into slices.
With a maximum of 2 hours before being served, we put whipped cream in each basket and decorate with fruit to taste, then let it cool until serving.
It is a delight !!!
What Is Pavlova
It is really just meringue that is topped with whipped cream and fruit. Often times it is served with berries, but in New Zealand we had it with passion fruit and kiwi.
It is made of egg whites, sugar, corn starch, white vinegar, and vanilla extract. Once baked, the exterior is nice and crispy and the inside is soft and marshmallow-y.
Cover a tray with baking paper or a silicone mat and place the meringue, giving it a round shape (26 cm), using a ring with a detachable shape. Or we can put the meringue in a bag. poche and form the circle.
Bake the meringue for about two hours at 100-110 ° C.
Meanwhile, mix the whipped cream with a spoonful of sugar and the seeds from the vanilla pod. We thus obtain the Chantily cream with which we decorate the meringue after it has cooled completely.
From the amount of strawberries I stopped a few whole ones and I made the rest puree with a blender. I decorated Pavlova with strawberry puree, a few slices of strawberry and kiwi cubes. Enjoy!

Put the egg whites in a large bowl, add a pinch of salt and beat until you get a strong foam. Add the sugar in 5-6 portions and mix well until it melts. Add the vinegar and at the end the starch, which you easily incorporate with a spatula.
We lined a tray with baking paper. We put the egg white foam in a pastry syringe and form circles as equal as possible. We leave the distance between them because they still grow when baked.
Put the tray in the preheated oven on very low heat, for about an hour and a quarter. I let them cool in the oven for half an hour, then I took them out and placed them on the plate.
Mix the broken chocolate pieces with 3 tablespoons of whipped cream and put it on the fire until it melts (without boiling). After it cools, mix it with the rest of the whipped cream.

Mini pavlove with mascarpone cream and berries
There are many beautiful quotes about this new rebirth of nature that delights us with its presence every year in the period immediately following those long and cold nights. She also comes, like other moments, to give us hope that dreams that tend to become reality will become an expected present.
Martisoare exists for all varieties and for all tastes, but from my loved ones can expect an edible martisoara, a sweet, something to represent me, and this is best translated into reality through my main passion: confectionery. So if you want to have a bigger contribution in what you will give this year, I invite you to reproduce the recipe I propose today: mini pavlove with mascarpone cream and fresh fruit :). Pavlova is a fine, refined, tender dessert that conquers through these attributes in a surprising way.
Ingredients (18 pieces)
For mascarpone cream:
- 230 gr mascarpone (very cold)
- 220 gr liquid cream (very cold)
- 50 gr powdered sugar
- 1 lg of vanilla paste
For the berry sauce:
- 300 gr mashed berries
- 50 gr caster sugar
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 7 gr pectin

Method of preparation:
- Beat the egg whites with the sugar on a steam bath until it reaches a temperature of 45 ° C.
- Continue frothing with the mixer until its bowl has cooled and we get a firm and glossy meringue.
- Add the starch and vinegar and mix gently.
- Preheat the oven to 110 ° C. Line two trays with baking paper or silpat paper.
- The meringue is placed in a bag with a sprinkled dui and it is poured in the shape of baskets, leaving a gap in the middle so that the resulting pavlovele can be filled later (only the first layer is sprinkled at the base).
- Put the trays in the oven and bake the pavlovas for 90 minutes, heat up + down.
- After this time, take them out of the oven and leave them in the trays to cool.
- Heat the berry puree to 40 ° C, then add in the rain the sugar previously mixed with the pectin and mix vigorously with a whisk. From the moment of boiling, let it boil for 3 minutes.
- Then leave to cool until use.
Put all the ingredients in the bowl of the mixer and beat until you get a thick cream. Be careful not to cut!
Assembly: Each pavlova is filled with mascarpone cream and decorated with berries and pistachio bar. Pour a teaspoon of sauce on the edge, starting from the top. Serve with more sauce on the plate. They are fantastically good!

Mini Berry Pavlova Twirls
Mini Berry Pavlova Twirls. An amazing Easy dessert to make for an occasion or just special treat with fresh fruits and berries.
To make this berry pavlova recipe is not easy but not difficult either. Its the time that it takes and the time for the pavlova to cool that is the problem. Otherwise its simply knowing how to whisk the egg whites properly.
Below is the egg whites whisked and the egg yolks aside. The secret is knowing how to combine the castor sugar and firstly the medium speed whisking, then the faster speed when applying a small amount of sugar at a time.
Then the piping of the pavlova is not a secret. Just pipe a swirl or round base, then go round the sides for the side of the basket. Twirling twice for the sides for the filling to be inserted in.

Mouthwatering and Easy Mini Pavlovas
These mini pavlovas are such a delicious and fun dessert! One of my favorites.
My first experience with pavlova was 10 years ago. Someone made a giant rectangular pavlova for a ladies & # 8217 Bible study I participated in. It was love at first bite!
Since then I & # 8217ve made the traditional round pavlovas, half sheet pan size rectangular pavlovas, and of course these adorable mini pavlovas.
If you & # 8217ve never had pavlova before, it & # 8217s a meringue like crust, crispy on the outside and marshmallow like in the middle, topped with freshly whipped cream and fruit.
This is also dessert that comes across as fancy, but it is inexpensive to make if you use fruit that is in season.
Once you see the simplicity of these ingredients, you'll understand why it's budget friendly!
- Egg whites
- Granulated sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Vinegar or lemon juice
- Heavy whipping cream
- Powdered sugar
- Fresh fruit
Use whatever fresh fruit is in season. Things like strawberries, blueberries, any other berry. Peaches and other pit fruits are also great options. You can do one fruit or a combination.
A mint leaf or two on the top would be a fun presentation options as well.
Room temperature egg whites and the bowl of sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
MINI PAVLOVA INSTRUCTIONS
- Beat room temperature egg whites until soft peaks form.
- Combine the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add a tablespoon at a time to the egg whites. Scrape down sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula after last tablespoon is added.
- Beat until stiff peaks form. The egg whites should feel smooth & # 8211 not gritty from the sugar.
- Tap the egg whites off of the whisk. Combine the vanilla and vinegar and sprinkle over the top. Fold in gently.
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
- Line a large baking sheet (or two small ones) with parchment paper. Scoop the meringue onto the sheets in 8 even piles and spread into circles making a slight indentation in the middle.
- Place in oven and turn oven down to 250 degrees. Bake for 60 minutes. They should be firm and dry (but not brown). Turn oven off and let them cool in the closed oven. (It & # 8217s is easy to forget to turn the oven off & # 8230 Guess how I know! Thus why these meringues are a little brown.)
- Whip the heavy cream and prepare the fruit. In the winter time, if you don & # 8217t have access to fresh fruit, you can make a simple fruit compote by boiling frozen fruit in a couple tablespoons of water (and a little sugar if needed) to make a fruity sauce. Brighten with a splash of lemon juice after cooking. Use this over the top instead of the fresh fruit.
- Assemble the mini pavlovas and enjoy!
The meringue with stiff peaks and the vanilla / vinegar mixture ready to be folded in.
One thing to know about a pavlova is that ones it & # 8217s topped with the whipped cream and fruit, you need to eat it. The meringue won & # 8217t stay crisp.
When I brought the large rectangular pavlova to a small group and a 4th of July celebration, I brought the meringue base and then serving dishes of whipped cream and fruit. Everyone topped their own. For a fancier party, you & # 8217d probably want to present the pavlova already assembled and then serve for the wow factor.
With the mini pavlovas, you could leave everything separate and serve the meringue on a platter followed by dishes of whipped cream and fruit options. Or for events that aren & # 8217t buffet style and you do have a head count, assemble and plate each mini pavlova before serving.
There's no wrong option! Just know for storing leftovers it & # 8217s best to have all the components separate. For serving for a dinner party, you are fine to assemble everything ahead of time and serve. Leftovers that are already combined, you will want to eat within a day & # 8211 the crispiness of the meringue won & # 8217t last.
Crispy on the outside, but soft and chewy on the inside, these naturally gluten free Mini Pavlova are the perfect end to dinner.
- 3 large egg whites, room temperature (see Note)
- 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) cream of tartar
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2/3 cup (150 g) sugar
- 2 teaspoons (10 ml) cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) pure vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a tall, metal bowl that is completely free from oil or egg yolks, whisk together the egg whites, cream of tartar, and a pinch of salt.
- With a hand mixer, or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
- With the mixer still running, slowly add the sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time. Continue to beat on high speed until stiff peaks form. If you feel the meringue between your fingers, it should be smooth. If you still feel the sugar granules, keep beating on medium speed until the sugar has fully dissolved.
- Add the cornstarch, vinegar, and vanilla to the egg whites, and whisk to incorporate.
- Spoon about 1/2 cup of the egg white mixture for each pavlova. Spread each into a 3-inch (7.5 cm) circle, with higher sides, and a slight hollow in the middle. You should have enough for 6 mini pavlovas.
- Bake the pavlovas in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until they are very light tan in color, and the meringue seems set. Open the oven door an inch, and allow the pavlova to cool completely.
- Top the pavlova with some whipped cream and fresh fruit or fruit curd, immediately before serving. You can prepare the pavlova hours in advance, and store in an air-tight container until serving.
Separating the egg whites from the yolks is easier to do when the eggs are still cold. Separate them, then let them come to room temperature. You can use the egg yolks to make this easy Vanilla Grapefruit Curd.

Tag @faithfullygf and use the hashtag #faithfullygf. I & # x27d love to see it!
With your remaining egg yolks, you could always bake this yummy Gluten Free Banana & # 8217s Foster Cream Pie!
Pavlova and curds: match made in heaven! So glad you brought the Pav to the spotlights. After going gf almost ten years ago, this was the first recipe I & # 8217ve mastered. I & # 8217ve made humongous amounts of Pavs since then. For birthdays, holidays, special dinners or just to use up leftover egg whites after making Carbonara. Currently we & # 8217re quite in love with Nigella Lawson & # 8217s Cappucino Pavlova. I think I agree with your son: make them again & # 8230 a lot!
I really need to get into making a nice, big pillow pavlova & # 8211 I know my son would approve. That Cappuccino one sounds amazing!
Marsha (Friesen) Heeter says
Jeanine, I & # 8217m quite familiar with Pavlovas since we lived in New Zealand from 1958-1963. I never thought of making individual ones, though. My main reason for commenting, however, is to ask which Friesen family you might belong to. Mine is one of three not directly related families that settled in Dallas, Oregon. Our family came to the US from Russia, starting in the midwest and then moving to Oregon.
Hmm & # 8230 which Friesen family? Good question & # 8230 I & # 8217ll have to ask my husband! I believe that the family settled in Manitoba, Canada though, which is where we still reside, but I don't know any history further back than that. Sorry!
I & # 8217ve made mini Pavlovas before, though not recently. They are sooo yummy! I & # 8217ve never had the desire to try a large one & # 8211 minis are just right! One of our markets has Meyer lemons in right now. I think I'll get a few and try making lemon curd with them to put on some mini meringues.
I got a chuckle out of your son & # 8217s comment. Too cute!
Oh YUM! Meyer Lemon would be so good !! Maybe top with a few raspberries. Mmm & # 8230
Oooooh! They look beautiful! I can see them stuffed with fresh berries and cream! My husband would love them!
Thanks for this recipe!
Fresh berries would be wonderful! Just need to wait until they are in season (although frozen would work well too). The berries in the stores here right now just don't have much flavor.
Can you successfully cut off the top so that you have a little cap?
This looks so good! It would be fun to serve with a couple options for filling so people can fill their own!
Meringue: Put the egg whites in a large bowl, add a pinch of salt and beat until you get a strong foam.
Add the sugar in 5-6 portions and mix well until it melts. Add the vinegar and at the end the starch, which you easily incorporate with a spatula.
We lined a tray with baking paper. We put the egg white foam in a pastry syringe and form circles as equal as possible. We leave the distance between them because they still grow when baked.
