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:

  1. 3 egg whites
  2. 2/3 cup sugar
  3. A pinch of salt
  4. 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

A bit of history and background on what is a Pavlova

Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. It is a meringue dessert with a crisp crust and soft, light inside, usually topped with fruit and whipped cream. The name is pronounced, as the name of the dancer..
