Mini Apple Pavlovas

Ingredients for pavlova:

  • 4 egg whites
  • a sprinkle of salt
  • 1/4 tsp vinegar
  • 3/4 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup confectioner sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Recipe for pavlova:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, crack 4 room temperature eggs. Add a sprinkle of salt and 1/4 tsp vinegar.
  • Beat the egg whites with a mixer until frothy.
  • Continue beating the egg whites and gradually add in the 3/4 cups of sugar, one spoonful at a time.
  • Once the egg whites form a stiff peak but are still a little grainy to the touch, add in 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  • Turn the mixer back on and add in 1/4 cup confectioner sugar gradually, one spoonful at a time.
  • Beat until you have stiff peaks.
  • Scoop out the egg whites unto the baking sheet into 6 even circles. Use a spoon to create an indent at the top of each mini pavlova to more easily hold the topping later.
  • Place the pavlovas in the 350-degree oven. Once the door is closed, immediately reduce the temperature to 200 degrees.
  • However long you bake these depends a lot on your oven. Since my oven doesn’t retain heat super well, I baked mine for 2 hours and 50 mins.
  • When they are done, turn off the oven and allow them to cool completely while still in the oven.

Topping ingredients:

  • 1 cup of honey or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 green apple
  • Honey to drizzle on top

Topping recipe:

  • Wash and dice a green apple into little pieces.
  • Mix 1/2 cup white sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon.
  • Coat the diced apples in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  • Mix the sugary apples into 1 cup of Greek yogurt.

Putting it together:

  • Once the mini pavlovas are finished cooling completely in the oven, spoon the topping into the indents on the tops of the pavlovas.
  • Drizzle with honey.

Cherry Chocolate Brownies: A Recipe

Ingredients:

-2 cups of light brown sugar

-3/4 cups flour

-2/3 cups cocoa powder

-1/2 cup chocolate chips

-3/4 tsp salt

-2 eggs

-1/2 cup melted butter

-2 TBS water

-1/2 tsp vanilla

-1/2 cup cherry pie filling

Recipe:

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a pan.

-In a bowl, combine 2 cups light brown sugar, 3/4 cups flour, 2/3 cups cocoa powder, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, and 3/4 tsp salt. It’s easier to combine if you sift the flour and cocoa powder.

-In another bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, 1/2 cup melted butter, 2 TBS water, and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Make sure the melted butter is cool before you mix it.

-Combine the wet and dry ingredients.

-Add 1/2 cup cherry pie filling to the brownie mixture and stir well.

-Pour the mixture in a greased pan and smooth it flat. Tap the bottom of the pan on the counter to make sure there are no air bubbles.

-Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 mins, or until a knife comes out of the mixture clean. The more moisture in the cherry pie filling, the longer you will have to bake it for.

-Enjoy! 🙂 ❤ xoxoxo
