Wonderful Pavlova, served at a family bar b q and looked so impressive. Was gone before I could even get a photo. This is one of the best I've made and will now become my go to recipe
I doubled up this recipe for a Birthday party, it was the first dessert to go. Everyone loved it.
Even though I overbeat the eggwhites the meringue came out really well. This raspberry pavlova is a wonderful way to finish off a meal! Thanks...I'll be keeping this as my meringue recipe from now on!
