Smashed Pavlova.

Our chickens are back on the lay after having Winter off. This means every day we are getting at least 6 eggs. Most weighing in at 100g!

Time to make a pavlova.

6 egg whites
1tbs vinegar
1tbs cornflour
2C caster sugar.

I beat the egg whites till stiff peaks form then slowly add the sugar, cornflour and vinegar.

I bake in the oven at 150oC for about 2 hours.  Open up the oven door and leave it to cool.

Today we decided to do something different than the usual pav. We made a smashed fruit Pav.

We crushed up our cooked pav into bite sized pieces.
We whipped 500ml of cream together with a small jar of strawberry jam.
We folded it all together and threw strawberries on the top!

I can imagine one with honeycomb would also taste delicious! or chopped up Snickers!

Cannot wait for Nanny and Poppy to arrive so we can eat it!

With the 6 left over egg yolks I made my own custard for the first time ever. Easy and delicious and perfect by itself or added onto a trifle! yum!






Lucky I have 2 beautiful helpers in the kitchen.
