Tips For Making Meringue

Make this chocolate pavlova successfully! Have you ever attempted to make meringue and it wouldn’t hold its shape at all! I’ve had this happen a few times and it can be so frustrating! The key to getting stiff and glossy peaks is using a super squeaky clean mixing bowl and whisk. Even the tiniest amount of grease or oil residue will cause the egg whites to go flat.

  • Use a degreasing soap or white vinegar to rinse the bowl before using, then wipe it down with a clean kitchen towel.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar to further help stabilize the egg whites.

Assembling the Dessert

Since the chocolate pavlova base takes several hours to bake, I recommend splitting this cake recipe into a two-day project. Allow the meringue layer to cool completely, then place into a bag or an airtight container and keep at room temperature. Make the lavender cream and assemble the dessert when ready to serve so that they meringue stays crunchy. I made the lavender cream with cream cheese, but softened mascarpone will also work well! And make sure your lavender oil is okay for consumption. Get the one I use here:
