The most common mistakes when preparing a Pavlova cake recipe

  • Adding sugar too quickly

Do not add the sugar all at once, but rather spoon by spoonful and gradually beat. Add the next batch of sugar only after the previous batch has been thoroughly incorporated into the egg whites.

  • Using a dirty bowl

Unfortunately, even the tiniest residue of oil on the inside of your bowl, or even a tiny speck of egg yolk, will prevent your egg whites from foaming properly, no matter how hard you whip them.

  • Eggs are not at room temperature

Egg whites will make better, airier meringues if they are at room temperature. A lot of people take their eggs out of the fridge 10 or 15 minutes, or even 30, before using them.

  • Beating egg whites too long

One of the most common mistakes is not beating the eggs long enough or at too slow a speed, which means the whites don’t reach stiff peaks and instead only reach the in-between stages. But the opposite can also happen, if you beat them for too long, the egg whites will eventually exceed their maximum stiffness and a kind of grainy consistency will result.

  • Baking the meringues too low

If you notice drops of liquid forming on the surface of the meringue while baking, this is a sign that your oven temperature is too low. Solution, increase the temperature and reduce the baking time. Also note that a fully baked meringue should easily come off the baking sheet when you lift it. If it still sticks to the baking sheet, bake it for a few more minutes and try again.
