Gaby's Bakery - Lemon Pavlovas

Gaby's Bakery - Lemon Pavlovas

A pavlova is a type of meringue. But whilst a meringue is dry and crispy throughout, a pavlova has a crispy shell and a soft, chewy and marshmallow-like centre.

Mini Lemon Pavlovas

Ingredients:
Pavlova:
3 eggs whites
180g caster sugar
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Lemon curd:
120ml double cream
120g lemon curd

To decorate:
Lemon curd (to drizzle)
Lemon zest

Method:
Pavlova: Pre heat oven to 150⁰C. Line a baking tray. Whisk eggs whites and salt on slow for 1-2 minutes. Increase speed to medium and continue to whisk for another couple of minutes until the egg whites have formed stiff peaks (but still moist). Increase speed to high and gradually add the sugar and baking powder until all is incorporated and mixture is stiff and glossy, then whisk in the vanilla.

Either use a large spoon and place blobs on a baking tray, or cut a large hole in the bottom of a piping bay and pipe out large dollops. Reduce oven temperature to 140⁰C and bake for appx 30-40 mins. When ready turn off oven and leave meringues in to cool.

Lemon curd: Whip up the cream until thick and airy but still with a softness. Gently fold in the lemon curd. Leave in the fridge until the pavlovas have completely cooled, then spread a generous amount over the top of one and then place another on top, being careful not to press too hard or they will collapse!

Place in the freezer until ready to serve but take out 30 mins prior to eating. Drizzle over some of the remaining lemon curd and some lemon zest.

Enjoy.

I love long hair. But sometimes you can have too much of a good thing, and if it’s not cut properly it can drown the wearer and make shampoo-days a dreaded event. Tara had gorgeous hair but the haircut had no shape. Just the usual...
