Ingredients for the autumn apple pavlova
Make the pavlova
- Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg whites on medium-high speed (4) until soft peaks form.
- Reduce speed to medium (3) and add the sugar one tablespoon at a time, making sure each addition is fully incorporated.
- Turn the mixer back to medium high speed (4) until the sugar is dissolved, and the egg whites are thick and glossy, and hold their shape well.
- In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and white vinegar.
- Add in the cornstarch mixture and mix for 45 seconds on high speed (6).
- Spread the pavlova meringue on the baking sheet, forming a circle. Create decorate peaks around the edges if desired.
- Place the pavlova in the oven. As soon as you close the oven door, reduce heat to 225°F (110°C). Bake for 90 minutes, without opening the door so that no air comes in interrupting the baking process.
- Turn the oven off and leave the pavlova cool inside the oven
Make the caramelized apples
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
