AUSTRALIA- Pavlova

From steering it up to whipping it, I will try to use as many song references as possible. How many song references did I use? You guess in the comments, and I will use the best answer in my next post! And no, this is not Baklava, this is Pavlova.

You Will Need,

4 Egg Whites,

1 1/4 cups of sugar (Yes Please) (Helps the Medicine go down),

1 teaspoon of vanilla,

1 teaspoon of lemon juice (The Medicine),

2 teaspoons of cornstarch.

1 pint of heavy cream (You’re gonna whip it),

And 6 kiwi (I wish I had a song reference here, but, I don’t 😦 )

Preheat an oven to 300 degrees. (Which reminds me, I accidentally microwaved aluminum. I was left saying “We didn’t start  the fire!”) Then, put a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and draw a nine inch circle. Oh yeah, and if you know how big that is, then this will make you chuckle:

And if you don’t, look it up (Hint r = 9in). Now, the size of the circle matters a lot. Lets just call it the circle of life. Next, put the egg whites in a bowl. And only egg whites. No yolk. We don’t want the white lines to go away, we want the yellow lines to go away. Trust me, this is harder. Now beat it, or them, until they become white, stiff, and a bit creamy. But since it’s not cream, don’t be tempted to lick it. now add the sugar (yes please) little by little, one teaspoon at a time. Now, fold in the remaining ingredients (except the kiwis), don’t mix them, don’t beat it, I mean them, and most certainly don’t whip it (Yes I know it’s them). Folding them in is not even a stir. You will not be steering eet up today. Instead, you have to blanket up the ingredients and read them a bedtime story. I would read the 3 little pigs to them if I were you. Anyways, after they are asleep we have to utilize the circle of life. Now, using precise measurements, not a single millimeter outside of the circle. Allow me to demonstrate.

Anyways make it so there is more batter on the edge of glory. Than some of the remaining ingredients will be like “That’s me in the corner”. Then you bake it for an hour. You have to wait for it and give it some time, but while you wait you can do many things. You can build a lego house and break it down again, you can listen to some Uptown funk with an Uptown girl and make it hip to be square. Or you can whip the whipping cream. Try saying that 10 times fast. Now all you need is as much sugar (Yes please) as you like, and some whipping cream. Now, you can either simply beat it using your hand mixer or kitchen-aid mixer, or you can do it… Jack Style. “Now how might you do that?” You may ask. There are only 4 rules:

Rule 1: You must be doing karaoke to Devo’s Whip it.

Rule 2: You must be whipping it to the beat (don’t worry, it’s only 3 minutes 🙂 ).

Rule 3: Use maximum dancing.

Rule 4: Use a whisk, obviously.

And using either of these methods, you will have… Whipped Cream! Spread it on the meringue (But take it out of the oven first, also, let it cool.)

Now, all you gotta do now is chop up the kiwis (Which by the way, I still can’t find a clever pun), and put them on the meringue. And you are d-d-d-done! Is that a pun? I don’t know, but done and pun rhyme!

RECIPE

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 6 kiwi, peeled and sliced

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw a 9-inch circle on the parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Gradually add in the sugar, about 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until thick and glossy. Gently fold in vanilla extract, lemon juice, and cornstarch.
  3. Spoon mixture inside the circle drawn on the parchment paper. Working from the center, spread mixture toward the outside edge, building edge slightly. This should leave a slight depression in the center.
  4. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a wire rack.
  5. In a small bowl, beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form; set aside. Remove the paper, and place meringue on a flat serving plate. Fill the center of the meringue with whipped cream, and top with kiwifruit slices.
