“A simple dessert. Great as a dinner party dessert. You can use any filling of your choice- lemon or passionfruit curd, whipped cream and fruit such as strawberries or fruit salad. Great also with cream and finely chopped nuts or flaked chocolate. As a low fat option you can use vanilla yogurt and strawberries. This dessert is gluten-free as it has no flour- just ensure your fillings are also GF”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C ( 325°F ) Grease a slab tin.
  2. Place all of the ingredients in a mixer bowl and beat untill stiff peaks form.
  3. Spread the mixture into the prepared tin. Sprinkle with the slivered almonds and coconut, if desired- this is optional and not a necessity.
  4. Bake at 160°C for 20 minutes and then reduce oven temperature to 140°C and bake for a further 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and turn the pavlova out onto a clean tea-towel. Roll up from the widest side. Cool.
  6. When cool, unwrap the pavlova and fill as desired. It's best not to overfill as it will be harder to roll and slice.
  7. Re-roll and serve cut into slices.
  8. The roll is best eaten with 24 hours.
