Recently I made a Weet-bix cake based on my Mum’s recipe.
Well, this clearly has to be topped by something even better and more wonderful – enter Angela.
For the first time in her life she attempts to make a Pavlova. We check Mum’s recipe and note that there are just no details on what to actually do, just a list of ingredients, so out comes Cookery the Australian way, the bible of cooking during the 80’s and the text-book for many Home Economics classes.
Pavlovas or pavs as we like to call them had been a staple of our family celebrations.
There’s 4 pavs in this spread – that must’ve been something special! There’s no way Mum was using her own recipe. Perhaps she’d committed it to memory and was filling in the blanks.
Here’s the video of us making our own pav – it’s not even close to the magnificence of Eve’s pavs.
