Brown Sugar Pavlova

I’m so behind on posting…

For today, here’s the brown sugar pavlova I made for Moogle’s sixth birthday party. Because, yes, I had a dog birthday party. Stop judging.


Link to the original recipe later, but this is what I did: (From memory… what’s wrong with me. Why do I know this.)

8 egg whites
1c brown sugar
1c white sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 white vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Whip egg whites to stiff peaks, then slowly pour in the sugars. Then mix in the other stuff.

Shape into 8in circles (two), and bake at 250F for 90 minutes, then turn the oven off and let sit in the closed oven for at least an hour (up to overnight).

Assemble with a tart filling.

This one was lemon curd on the bottom, strawberry rhubarb compote on top, then sliced peaches. The original recipe was rhubarb curd and strawberries. I think any tart curd will work, as it offsets the meringue’s sweetness.
