- 4 egg whites
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups sweetened whipped cream
- 2 pieces fresh peaches, quartered
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup raspberries
- Mint leaves for garnishing
- Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place the egg whites and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat the egg whites and salt on high speed until stiff for about a minute. With the mixer still on high, slowly add the sugar and beat it until it becomes firm.
- Meringue: Remove the bowl from the mixer, sift the cornstarch onto the beaten egg whites and vanilla, and fold in lightly with a rubber spatula. Placed the whipped egg white into piping bag and squeeze to form six (6) little baskets into a parchment paper. Bake for one hour. Turn off the oven and allow the meringue to cool in the oven.
- Pavlova: Put the meringue disks onto their own serving plate and spread the top completely with sweetened whipped cream.
- Combine the blueberries, raspberries and peaches in a bowl. Spoon the berries carefully into the middle of the pavlovas. Garnish with mint leaves.
- Drizzle with melted chocolate or powdered sugar if desired.
Serve with love!
