This easy Lemon Pavlova recipe is the perfect combination of whipped cream, zesty Lemon Curd and crisp meringue. 


  • 4 egg whites
  • Pinch of salt
  • 225 caster sugar
  •  teaspoon cornflour
  •  teaspoon lemon juice
  • 300 ml Lemon Curd (you can use ready-made Curd but home-made is better)
  • 300 ml double cream

Lemon Pavlova


  1. Set your oven to 140 C/275 F/Gas Mark 1.
  2. Whisk the egg whites with salt until they form stiff peaks.
  3. Add two tablespoons of sugar and continue to whisk until combined and the mixture is thick and glossy.
  4. Fold the rest of the sugar, the cornflour and the lemon juice into the whisked egg whites.
  5. Cover a baking sheet with baking parchment or silicon paper.
  6. Spoon the egg white mixture onto the baking sheet to form a large circle or oval.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour until the exterior of the meringue is hard to the touch.
  8. Allow to cool.
  9. When ready to serve, spoon the Lemon Curd over the top of the meringue base.
  10. Then whisk the double cream until it forms soft peaks and then spread it on top of the Lemon Curd

I have a foolproof recipe for Lemon Curd, which is very quick and easy to make and tastes so much better than the shop-bought version.
