How to make Pavlova :-
(often misspelt : Pavalova , pavolva, palova , pavlover , pavolva)

Pavlova is a meringue based dessert named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova.
it is a cake similar to meringue with a crispy crust and soft, light inner center.
Pavlova is made by beating egg whites (and sometimes salt) to a very stiff consistency before folding in caster sugar, white vinegar, cornstarch, and sometimes vanilla essence, and slow-baking the mixture, similarly to meringue. This makes the outside of the pavlova a crisp crunchy shell, while the interior remains soft and moist. The pavlova's internal consistency is completely different from that normally associated with meringue, having a soft, marshmallowy texture. This difference is due to the addition of cornstarch, the use of which is the defining feature of a pavlova recipe.
Pavlova is traditionally decorated with a topping of whipped cream and fresh soft fruit such as kiwifruit, passionfruit, and strawberries
