Pavlova - A Light Dessert

Dear Friends 

I am looking for very lighter one dessert which has no flour.It is gluten free one.It is very amazing and very light one. It is purely originated from New Zealand  & Australia!!! It is a meringue dessert with a crisp crust and soft, light inside and filled with whipped cream and fresh fruits on the top :) Why is it called as Pavlova? Here is the answer for the pavlova As I read it from Wikipedia Here it is!
"Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova"

It goes great for any occasions or valentine's day :)

It is very simple ingredient available at your home :)


  • 2 Egg Whites 
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon White Vinegar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon CornFlour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract 

  • Light Whipped Cream
  • Fresh Fruits of your choice
  • Chocolate Shavings or Chocolate garnishes.(Optional)


Preheat the oven to 250 F 

Step 1:

Add the egg whites and beat until it is frothy.Add the sugar.Beat it until it gets peak form stiff.

Step 2:
Add the vinegar,cornflour and vanilla extract and fold gently till it is well combined.

Step 3:

Take a baking sheet.Line a parchment paper on the baking sheet.Put the egg whites mixture on the center of the baking sheet to form round shaped  by using spatula.

Step 4:

Make it as exact as shown in the picture.

Step 5 

Bake it for about 40 to 50 Minutes or until it is light brown in color or it is set like crust on the top.

Step 6:

Allow it to cool completely.

Step 7:

Decorate it as you like.I put the whipped cream on the top gently to avoid breakage of the meringue crust top and sides.Add the washed cut fruits as you like and keep it on the whipped cream and last decorate it with chocolate shavings or chocolate garnishes.

Step 8:

Slice it and serve it :) 


  • You can increase the double quantity of my ingredients. 
  • Make sure handle the meringue dessert carefully.It is easily to break.So put the whipped cream gently one by one and smooth it with spatula gently too.
  • Use parchment paper for baking it will stick if keep for long time at cooling stage.If used parchment paper then it will be easy for you to take out the meringue to the serving plate. 

Awaiting to hear youe comments!!!

Happy Baking!!
