A vibrant addition to any table anytime. How good do those fresh berries look on that crispy pavlova?

Ingredients (makes 12 Very Berry Mini Pavs)

  • 6 Egg Whites (be really careful there is no yolk at all in the whites)
  • 270g Caster Sugar
  • 2 tsp Cornflour
  • 1 tsp White Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract or Essence
  • 300ml Thickened Cream
  • 1 punnet Blueberries
  • 1 punnet Blackberries
  • 1 punnet Raspberries


  1. Use an electric mixer to beat egg whites in a very dry, clean mixing bowl (not metal) until soft peaks form.
  2. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition, until meringue is thick, shiny and the sugar has fully dissolved.
  3. Add cornflour, vinegar and vanilla and whisk until just combined.
  4. Place spoonfuls of meringue onto a foil or baking paper lined tray. Keep the dollops quite small as they will spread slightly when cooking.
  5. Bake in oven for 11/2 hours or until pavlovas are dry to the touch. Turn off oven. Leave pavlova in oven with the door ajar to cool completely.
  6. When completely cold, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of berries.
  7. If you like the idea of a drizzle of berry coulis, simply blend a few together and then spoon over the other berries. Or you could add a teaspoon of hot water to some raspberry jam to make a drizzle. Or you could really cheat and use a little strawberry or raspberry topping (!)
  8. Add a few little sprigs of micro herbs for colour and voila!

  • Some children will eat these just as meringues – no filling. Others love the cream filling with only a small amount of fruit on it. Most people put strawberries but you do find a few children who don’t like strawberries. Glad we have alternative berries and other fruit including passionfruit.

  • We like to make the pavlova bases without sugar and use arrowroot instead of cornflour

  • This would also be a great recipe toake for Christmas time. I would definitely have to try a run of this before hand just to help make sure that I can get mine looking like your picture lol
    Cheers for sharing this fab idea. What a winner


  • I know it is silly but I am a bit timid about making my own meringue!

    • Meringues are not as intimidating as they seem – worth having a go.


  • Love the picture and presentation – pav is simply delish!


  • Yep. Perfect for any event is the good old pav!!
