I C E & Pavlova's bitch

Shush! Don't mention the I-C-E.

Well that was our code to keep our "ickle" baby sister from hearing the 'must have' ice cream. Nowadays she's all grown up and has lost that craving for ice cream... HAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAHA


I used this recipe, from uktvfood again! Tamsin Day Lewis's recipe, who's a great cook of good, old fashioned, recipes. Even if I do find her hair disconcerting... anyway, that's enough about me!

This recipe calls for 4 egg yolks. Which means I have 4 egg whites to mess with. What better than Pavlova to go with my ice-cream. I used an average recipe again, but it still burnt! No idea what I'm doing wrong... though I suspect it's my gas oven... grrr

Still the top part could be salvaged! This is it sprinkled onto the I-C-E :-)

I've only ever made meringue and if it's anything similar to pavlova, you must set your oven very low i do my meringue on 100c fan assisted.

I've never tried pavlova so... i'm probably barking on the wrong tree here. :)

I think my oven is too hot from beneath. I'll try it much lower next time.

Oh, you're poor baby sister! All the ice cream she must have missed.

Still, though, it looks delicious. You must give your baby sis some!
