Pauline Kwong's pavlova

You'll need

4 eggwhites 330 gm (1½ cup) caster sugar 1½ tsp white vinegar 1½ tsp vanilla essence 300 ml thickened cream 500 gm strawberries, hulled and sliced To Serve: icing sugar


  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Using an electric mixer, beat eggwhites and a pinch of sea salt until soft peaks form, then, with the motor running, gradually add caster sugar and beat until sugar is incorporated, then add vinegar and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • 02
  • Spoon onto a baking paper-lined oven tray and form into a 22cm round. Reduce oven to 150C and bake for 1½ hours. Turn off oven and, leaving door ajar, stand pavlova in oven for at least 2 hours (but preferably overnight) to cool.
  • 03
  • In a large bowl, whisk cream until soft peaks form, spread over pavlova and scatter with strawberries. Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.
