In case anyone else is seduced into cooking the pavlova that was featured last week (Donna Hay's recipe), I tried it yesterday.
There was a comment on their webpage from someone who said the recipe contained too much cornflour, and I totally agree. It quite spoilt the texture.
Second hint, from one of the contestants whose pavlova flopped horribly - she suggested it was the humidity. Our kitchen was very humid when I cooked mine, and it didn't rise as I expected. So maybe humidity does count.
I love to eat pavlova, but have rarely cooked it myself, so it was a real beginners' test for me. Ate it with peaches and homemade egg custard (to use up the yolks), instead of cream.

My fiancé made the Masterchef Pavlova yesterday, it was the first time she has ever made one and it was perfect.

I have never used cornflour in a pavlova, and have rarely had a failure. Usually it is because I got bored with the beating before it was ready to go. Even those, while strangely flat, stacked nicely on top of each other with layers in between and became a new dessert form :lol:

Humidity does impact on them as the cooking process is more about drying out, than it is about cooking. That is why you leave them in the oven after it has been turned off.

Hi all,
I went looking on the masterchef site for Jimmy's Chilli crab and can't find it.
Do they put all recipes on there, am I just looking in the wrong spot?
I might have to make the pav instead.

Hi

I thought the pavlova recipe on the Masterchef website seemed like too much cornflour too, so I looked up Donna Hay's recipe in her classic desserts cook book. In that recipe, she uses teaspoons, not tablespoons. I think it's a typo in the Masterchef version.

Edited to add: I wish my girls would hurry up and start laying again so I can try it out.
