Pavlova Origin

Pavlovas originated in Australia or New Zealand and are one of my all time favorite desserts! I can’t believe that I’ve only discovered them in the last few years! Although, since then, I haven’t been able to stop making them for my family. When perfectly made, they are crisp and smooth on the outside and pillowy and marshmallowy on the inside!

What you’ll need



  • Egg whites- it is vital that eggs are separated from yolks VERY carefully because any amount of yolks, grease, or fat that much touch the whites can ruin the whites and prevent them from beating up to stiff peaks. It is easiest to separate COLD eggs.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cornstarch- the addition of cornstarch contributes to the fluffy marshmallowy texture inside the pavlovas
  • Fresh squeezed lemon juice- lemon juice and cornstarch both contribute to the classic pavlova textures

How to make the best swiss meringue pavlova

A pavlova is made from whipped egg whites + sugar. After it’s whipped to glossy, stiff peaks, it’s transferred to a baking pan, shaped into a mounded tutu dress, and baked in the oven with a low temperature for a long period of time. Importantly, the pavlova must also rest and cool very gradually inside the turned off oven to prevent it from collapsing or cracking. When the pavlova is completely cool, we can fill and top it with our fave fresh fruits and whipped cream!

Cook egg white and sugar

Whisk egg whites and sugar in a clean heat safe bowl of bowl of stand mixer. Place over a saucepan of 1-2 inches of simmering water to create a double boiler. Constantly whisk until all sugar has dissolved. This can take anywhere from 10-15 minutes. Check by rubbing a small amount of mixture between fingers. If it feels grainy, continue cooking and whisking until it is smooth.

Whisk to stiff peaks

With a stand mixer of hand held electric mixer, whisk on high until stiff peaks, about 4-5 minutes. Add cornstarch and lemon juice, and whisk for about 20 seconds to completely combine.

Shape, bake, and rest

Follow recipe of choice, whether it is a full sized pavlova, mini pavlovas, or meringue cookies. Shape as desired (usually using a spoon or offset spatula), and bake at 220 degrees F for 2 hours without opening oven door at any point. Turn off oven, and let pavlovas cool slowly inside the unopened oven.
