After the tart-a-thon on with the Edinburgh Cakes Ladies last week I had vowed to stay away from the desserts...for a while. I know it sounds awful but this past month has been one foodie event after another and "moderation" is not something I am good at. I am a greedy guts...FACT.
Well everything went down the drain when I remembered that we were having friends over for dinner on Saturday night. Friends who have recently had a baby. Friends who needed to be pampered. So...what better than a gigantic pavlova? Meringue, Cream and Strawberries...piled high high high.
I've not actually made a pavlova before, but when I was debating what to make I remembered that I had 4 egg whites in the freezer just screaming out to be used. I did some research on the internet and realised that I didn't have cream of tartar or cornstarch or white vinegar...ingredients that were claimed to be integral to the making of a proper pavlova.
Than I came across Delia's recipe...just egg whites and sugar. Simple.
