Mandy's Pavlova Base
3 egg whites
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice OR white vinegar
1 tablespoon cornflour
pinch of salt
Beat egg whites and salt until stiff. Add caster sugar in bits.
Mix together granulated sugar and cornflour. Once mixed, fold mixture into egg whites with lemon juice (or vinegar).
Cook in slow overn (250 degrees farenheit, 120 degrees C) for half an hour. Let cool in oven.
Now that's exactly what I have written down on the back of a reciept from the supermarket where I worked with Mandy, plus a diagram that indicates little circles around a bigger circle.
What I'm guessing is that you're supposed to make a little ring of peaks around some sort of a baking tray and this is what you put in the oven. I'm also guessing this is the meringue part of the whole deal. I'll give it a shot and post the results.

2/3 pkt. plain sweet biscuits, crushed fine (but not too fine, you want them to be more like chunky bread crumbs than flour). Mix with 3 oz (recipe originally says 1/4 lb. but you don't need that much) butter (melted). Line a flat round cake tin with grease proof paper, being careful to fold the paper flat against the sides. Pour in butter/biscuit mixture and mold to the pan, tamping lightly with a glass. Store in fridge for at least 1 hr.
Rice biscuits can be used here, but they tend to not be as strong and won't need as much crushing.
- 250 g philadelphia cream cheese
- 250 g ricotta (recipe calls for cottage cheese, but trust me, use ricotta)
- 250 g sour cream
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tbs. cornflour
- 1 teaspoon lemon rind
- 3 teaspoon lemon juice
Cool in oven. Chill for several hours.
I did this as a way of not feeling so bad about ripping off trademarks for a friend's t-shirt. You know, because if you clearly combine two licence properties you're much less likely to get sued...
But it's got me thinking, about what that thing on his chest could be. And this little story combining all these 80s cartoon tropes is starting to coallesce.
