How to make the perfect Pavlova

Deana Hurd from Lulu's Tea House shares the recipe for making the perfect Pavlova.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Pavlova Base

  • Eight egg whites
  • 13 ounces of granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of white vinegar- can substitute with lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • Garnish with berries


Beat egg whites with a mixer slowly adding granulated sugar. Add vinegar and vanilla extract. Mix well until the mixture is stiff, much like a meringue. 

On the bottom of a large cookie sheet placed one piece of parchment paper and sprinkle with water. 

Place Pavlova mixture on top of parchment paper and place in an oven at 330° for 10 minutes, then lower the oven temperature to 235° for 90 minutes. Turn oven off and leave Pavlova in the oven for at least one hour.

Whip 2 1/2 cups of whipping cream until light and fluffy. Place on top of Pavlova and garnish with berries.
