The perfect patriotic treat made with egg whites, sugar and a few other ingredients.


  • 4 Egg Whites, (room temperature)
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 TB Corn Starch
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • Whipped Cream and Berries to top


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Using parchment paper, draw a circle on the backside roughly 7 inches in diameter (this will act as a guide) and place on a baking sheet.

  5. Pour egg whites into the center of the circle that was drawn on, and fill the entire circle.
  6. Bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours, after 2 hours, turn off heat and allow to rest in oven for an additional 2 hours.
  7. Before serving, crack the top by gently hitting it with a spoon and top with whipped cream and berries.
  8. *If edges the edges of the pavlova start to brown, reduce heat to 175 degrees and continue to bake.
