Christmas Berry Wreath Pavlova Instructions
Separate the egg whites and place in a clean bowl.
Whisk until light soft peaks.
Pour in half the sugar and whisk again until it becomes silky.
Add the Cornstarch, vinegar, vanilla and the rest of the sugar and whisk until firm peaks form.
You should be able to hold the bowl upside down without the egg whites falling out of the bowl.
Preheat the oven to 120C / 250F
Spoon the Meringue mixture onto baking tray lined with baking paper. You want to form a wreath shape with the mixture.
Place the tray into the oven and cook for 1 1/2 -2 hours until it had risen and gone a light sandy color.
When the Pavlova is cooked turn off the oven and leave it in the oven to cool down.
Once it has cooled completely slide the Pavlova onto a serving plate.
When you are ready to serve the Pavlova, whip up some cream and put a nice thick layer on the meringue. Decorate with lots of fresh fruits and you are ready to go.

Stephanie from My Square Frying Pan is responsible for this amazing creation. It’s extremely festive and will be the perfect addition to your holiday table. Here are some baking tips she shared on her site.
- Make sure egg whites are at room temperature – not straight from the fridge – it makes it hard to whip to the right consistency
- Add ingredients to meringue in small amounts as per the recipe
- Do not open the oven while pavlova is baking
- Do not take pavlova physically out of the oven until cool
Stephanie says that even if you have a mini-disaster, the beauty of Pavlova is you can cover it up with lashings of fresh cream and your guests will be none the wiser!
