Ultimate Pavlova Cake



4 eggs whites

1 pinch of salt

100g sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon cornstarch (this will prevent meringue to shrink and can be cut easily)


100g cream cheese

100g heavy cream

25g icing sugar (or more if you like sweeter)


Different berries



  • Whip up egg whites with pinch of salt
  • Gradually incorporate sugar until stiff peaks, then vanilla extract and cornstarch
  • On a parchment using a plate make a circle with diameter of 22-24 cm
  • Arrange the meringue inside the circle
  • Bake it about 1 hour at temperature 130C, then turn the oven off and let the meringue completely cool down.


· Beat icing sugar and cream cheese with a mixer

· Separately beat heavy cream until stiff peaks. It is about 10 minutes, not more, otherwise you will have butter.

· Combine together heavy cream with cream cheese mixture

  • Just before serving, spread the cream over the meringue (you may use pastry bag) and decorate the cake with berries.

*- i never have the same berries and always get different variation of the cake. But Pavlova cake will always remain my favorite one.
