Making a perfect pavlova depends on a few simple steps.

Step 1: Line a baking tray with baking paper. Mark a 23cm circle onto the paper. You can use a plate as a guide.

Step 2: Beat eggwhites until stiff peaks form, or the eggwhites hold their shape. Spoon the eggwhite mixture onto the circle.
Step 3: Using a palette knife or spatula, mould the eggwhite mixture to fit inside the circle.
Step 4: Make ‘furrows’ or grooves around the sides of the circle. These will help support the pavlova and prevent it from cracking or collapsing.
Tip: Use a clean, dry bowl to beat eggwhites as any water or fat will reduce the volume of the eggwhites.
