Slow cooker Pavlova

Yes You Can Cook a Pavlova in the Slow Cooker In fact, the slow cooker makes the BEST pavlova’s on the planet – and because it cooks nice and slowly, the pavlova will stay together unlike the oven versions. I have read for years all the recipes for making pavlova in the slow cooker, but until I tried it myself, I wasn’t really convinced…. Call me a convert! Because it was amazing So soft and delectable! I’ll certainly be making it this way from now on!

you will need





Slow Cooker Pavlova Recipe:

6 egg whites

1 1/4 cups caster sugar
2 tsp. corn flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. white vinegar

NB: For best results, wipe the inside of the mixing bowl with a little white vinegar before beginning.

Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form.
Gradually add the caster sugar - 1 tbsp. at a time, ensuring it’s mixed well before adding the next spoonful.
Mix until the meringue is thick and glossy and the sugar is dissolved.
Add the cornflour, vinegar and vanilla extract and whisk until it is just combined.
Line the base and sides of the slow cooker with baking paper. Pour in the mixture, carefully, so that is stays within the baking paper. 


Cook on low for 1.5 hours.

Turn off the slow cooker and then leave the meringue in there until it has completely cooled.

Top with whipped cream, drizzle with passion fruit pulp and slices of SunGold Kiwifruit.


 And now for some Q & A:

Q. I was asked if the pavlova is crunchy on the outside, like in traditionally baked oven baked bases?
A. Yes. It is crunchy on the outside and marshmallow-y in the centre.

Q. I was also asked if the tea towel is safe in there and whether it could catch fire?
A. In my opinion, the tea towel is safe as it gets quite damp, catching all of the condensation which accumulates on the inside of the lid.

Q. Different sized slow cookers?
A. This recipe worked with my fairly large (wide) Kambrook slow cooker. If using a smaller slow cooker, test the meringue after an hour, by lightly pressing on the top. If it feels slightly sticky to the touch, but firm underneath, it’s ready.
