IMIM (#14): Pavlovas

4 Oct

I Made It Myself is a series where I document my attempts to cook food that I would normally pay someone else to make, or buy in a package.

Pavlovas are a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. I’m in Seattle this weekend and my mom and I decided to give it a go. First, we watched Giada do it. Then we did it ourselves.

Beating egg whites is half the battle.

    Gorgeous. Hey, I thought the key to successful egg white whipping was a copper or glass bowl. Good to see plastic doing the job.

      It took a LONG time for the eggs to stiffen, so a copper or glass bowl probably would have been better. But we got there in the end!
