Lock-down Kiddies Pavlova with Chantilly Cream
My version of “homeschooling” is teaching my kids to cook and bake. The little one wanted to make meringues, so we did!
Ingredients for this easy Lock-down Kiddies Pavlova:
- 3 egg whites
- 2/3 cup sugar
- A pinch of salt
- A pinch of cream of tartar
We also have a Christmas Pavlova you can try later in the year!
- Beat egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
- Add 5 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time slowly while still beating.
- Add salt and cream of tartar, and combine with mixer.
- Then fold the remaining sugar in with a metal spoon.
- Pipe onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 2.5 hours for small ones and 3 hours for large “bowls” on the lowest rack in 225°F oven until dry.
We served it with strawberries, raspberries, and chantilly cream. What a great treat!!
How about you try to make your own Chantilly cream
