bought this pavlova *thing* at supermarket yesterday, it is in a plastic egg thingee, and you just add water and sugar.
Has anyone tried it... . i have a sneaky feeling these were around in the 70's...

I made one. . looked great but kind of collapsed when I put my hand on the top of it to check if it was cool enough to cream. . lol
A friend here yesterday said hers collapsed when she put fruit on the top. .
Quite good for those unable to make a regular Pav I would think. Tasted ok. .

I have made it, but didnt quite read all the instructions. had oven heated to 170, and it said to put pav in and turn oven down to 120. opps... . 1/2 hr later it looks like it has browneda bit. will report back tomorrow, it looks good, and there is a lovely aroma throughout the house. quick and easy, and definately handy to have in the cupboard, if you have run out of eggs. I wondered tho if it needed a dash of vanilla, will find out later... . . Who dreams up these things... . Also made this morning, probably for the first time in 20odd years, a packet cake. most impressed... .

I made one of the ones available here in Aus. I found it very sweet so next time I would def use less caster sugar.

Our boarder made one put for our dinner on thursday...
It was yummy; I thought the advantage was that you could have it sitting in the cupboard; but to be honest, I couldn't see the point...

pav was very yummy, tho if i had read the instructions and not cooked at 170 instead of 120 it would have been a little softer. Mr K likes them chewy, and i guess thats the proof. i wouldnt make them all the time, but just handy to have in the pantry when you are short of eggs. would put a dash of vanilla in tho.
