Pavlova from the Edmonds 'Egg' Page 1 / 2

willz29, Dec 22, 7:13am
Hi All, I am "making" a Pavlova this year for Christmas but am using the Edmonds magic egg and not making it from scratch.I've heard lots of tips and tricks for making pav ie. use a cold stainless steel bowl not a plastic one, heap the mixture in the middle of the tray - don't spread it out, make it the day before you want to eat it.Do the same rules apply for this 'cheating' method from the egg!I don't want to stuff it up - it's only my third attempt at making one and I don't want it to flop as it's the main dessert.Thanks so much, Mrs W

im useless and i used the egg last year, it was amazing, seriously fool proof! i guess just making sure the utensils you use are bone dry is the only thing i would suggest, but honestly you really can't go wrong thanks to edmonds pav egg

Thanks chickybabe4, did you heap the pav on the baking sheet or spread it! So glad to hear its fool proof - I'm a big baker and love to bake but I'm not a kiwi so didn't grow up with pav, nor have I attempted it much up until now!

um, i remember i attempted to trace a circle onto baking paper so it would look semi-perfect, and im pretty sure i just dolloped it in the middle, then again it was christmas last year so can't be sure sorry!

I make pavs from scratch just use any bowl beat till stiff put on to lunchwrap in middle of tray just spread a little andbingo all done I guess your egg will be the same never used that - Good Luck - Have cheated this and brought one feeling lazy Merry Christmas

I made the one I had in my cupboard for over a year last week for my dads birthday. Everyone loved it & mum gave me a new one yesterday.a wee hint for christmas lol

willz29, Dec 22, 7:19pm
Glad to hear it went well jaky! I have my fingers crossed for mine, either way Ill have cream and strawberries to either compliment it or mask it!

I've made it a couple of times, it is pretty simple - One recommendation though. reduce the amount of sugar - it is sickly sweet with what they suggest. I think it calls for 130g, I'd highly recommend reducing it to at least 100g.

I still have one of these in the cupboard that i bought to make last Xmas. Might try and make it this year as well.

Ha ha, me too. I'm going to try the roulade from Food in a Minute.

p.s the beaters still taste like the homemade pav when licked!

willz29, Dec 22, 11:16pm
Haha, love that I'm not the only one using one of these this year.I felt like such a cheater going through the checkout lol!

I need to make a pav for 24, when you use the "Egg" do you actually have to add eggs!If not, I will go up to supermarket and get a few, I am just a bit worried about using up 24 egg yolks and this could be a good solution.

I just bought Edmonds Egg last night,$3.99 quite agood price.You do not need eggs.All you need is Pavlova egg, 130g caster sugar, 140ml water.Serving per package 6.

the pavlova egg is awesome! foolproof and yummy!

willz29, Dec 23, 5:47am
I did want to make one myself, then thought it might be a bit too much effort so thought I'd buy a pre-made one but saw this on special for $3.99 and I couldn't resist, so much cheaper and it's still home-made but not as much effort!So glad to hear it's foolproof boots13!Sounds like there will be a lot of pav making tomorrow :-)

I tried to make one once and was such a disaster i didnt try again. but made one from the edmonds egg thingys, and it was perfect. Absolutely everything you need to know is on the instructions inside the egg. Honestly, if i can make one, anyone can! Merry Christmas :-)

samboy, Dec 24, 12:57am
just bought 5 of them so will be furiously beating this afternoon.

keysie, Dec 24, 2:46am
'Egg' pav has just gone into oven so fingers crossed. I usually make late Grandmother in Laws recipe which is throw everything in and beat for 12 minutes, pretty foolproof, but this was easier.

shell_belle, Dec 24, 3:51am
Mine is in the oven right now as well :-) So far so good, touch wood .

willz29, Dec 24, 8:22pm
Well I made mine last night and it looks super - I just hope it tastes as good!Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy your pav! :-)

willz29, Dec 26, 8:03am
How did everyone's 'egg' pav turn out!I have to say that ours was really good (if I do say so myself, though I take no credit as I cheated haha).I had lots of great comments about it and tbh I'd be hard pressed to buy a pre-made one or make one from scratch in the future.I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

keysie, Dec 27, 2:51am
Yes ours was great too. So easy and cheap. Don't think I will make from scratch again either.

I looked for this 'egg' yesterday and could not find it. Where would it be in the supermarket! Maybe it was sold out.
