It should have been alright - depends on what recipe you used. This is my one for a crunchy pav.
4 egg whites
1 breakfast cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp vinegar
1 heaped tsp cornflour.

Beat egg whites until stiff. Gradually add sugar a tbsp at a time and beat well until it is shiny. Will take you about 10 minutes. Bake 120 C for 1 hour.

what do you then do with the cornflour, vanilla and vinegar? ? ? throw them over your shoulder for luck? ? ? ?

oops, sorry, add cornflour, vinegar and vanilla after you have beaten in the sugar.

Same amount eggs and I add 3tblsp cold water and pinch salt then beat until stiff, add 1&1/4 cups sugar and beat until sugar dissolved, then I fold in 1tsp vanilla, 1tsp malt vinegar and 3 tsps cornflour and lightly beat in with mixer pile onto baking paper and bake 140 1&1/2 hrs, I open oven up at end after turning it off and leave pav in until it has cooled down, soft centre with crunchy outside.

I preheat the oven to 150 while beating everything and turn it down to 50 after putting pav in oven and cook it that way for one and half hours. I get a perfect pav everytime and people rave about them

I know what you mean for years I have been making pavs and they have always worked really well until recentlythey have turned out like huge marsmallows, not crunchy on the outside at all. Help please andI have tried different receipes as well.
