I do not recommend Pavlova for dessert the evening before a glucose screening.
You can be assured that if you eat this for dessert the evening before your pregnancy glucose screening that you’ll have to return for the longer,
more intense, must fast before you go and drink only syrupy orange drink like the kind school used to have on sports day, for breakfast and hope not to throw up so you don’t have to start over test
The test that you know will turn out fine because you DIDN’T eat delicious Pavlova with whipped cream and mixed berries the night before!
Pavlova is so super simple to make and is an impressive and tasty dessert. Joy the Baker just posted a recipe for Pavlova that was topped with cranberry sauce…the possibilities are endless! Yum!
Pavlova recipe from joyofbaking.com
4 egg whites at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp white vinegar
1/2 tbsp corn starch
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment.
To begin make sure that your mixer bowl is very clean and free of any grease or fat.
Using a whisk attachment, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly add in the sugar while continuing to mix until stiff peaks form and the meringue feels smooth (there should be no gritty feel from the sugar)
Using a spatula, fold in th vinegar and corn starch.
Using a pastry bag with a large tip, pipe small “nests”
Bake in preheated oven for 40-50 minutes or until the outside edges look dry. Turn off the oven and crack the door open slightly letting them cool completely inside the oven.
Fill the cooled meringues with whipped cream and top with fruit. Serve immediately.
*meringues can be stored in an air tight container for about a week.
