This recipe takes a lot of prep and cooking time, but if you want to make and egg-free vegan Pavlova its totally worth it!
Use organic, fair-trade/local ingredients where possible =)
Preheat the oven to 120 degrees fan-bake.
In a bowl put 2/3 cup of flaxseeds with 2 cups of filtered water and mix well, let the seeds sit in the water for about 2 or so hours (overnight if you can) the water should go gooey, using a sieve strain the gooey water from the seeds, put the seeds aside, you can use them for something else, such as crackers, put them in home-made bread, smoothies… etc.
Measure 1 cup of the gooey water.
Put it in a bowl with 1 ¼ teaspoon of fruit pectin (I used Jamsetta)
Add ½ a cup of No Egg
Beat the mixture together on high for at least 5 minutes before adding;
1 teaspoon of vanilla bean extract with the vanilla seeds in it (if possible)
1 tablespoon of coconut sugar (brown sugar will be fine)
Mix in well, now it is time to add in 1 ¾ cup of sieved icing sugar, it is important to only beat in 1 tablespoon at a time =)
Once all of the icing sugar is bet in and the mixture is nice and fluffy, beat in 1 tablespoon of corn flour, 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon xanthan gum, then you need to quickly pour the mixture onto pre-greased (vegan butter or coconut oil etc) piece of baking paper which is lightly sprinkled with rice flour, or whatever flour you have, this is so the pav doesn’t stick to the paper, the first time I made this pav I didn’t do this and the Pavlova didn’t want to come off the baking paper, so this step is super important!.
Pop the Pavlova in the oven on 120 degrees fan bake for at least 3 hours, depending on the width and height of the pav will determine how long it will take for the Pavlova to cook to protection.
After 2.5 hours check on the pav, it may take 4 hours to cook properly so be patient!
Turn the oven off and let the pav cool down in the oven. To garnish the pav I beat up some coconut cream that I had left in the fridge overnight, with a little icing sugar, I cut up some mango, popped on a few raspberries and passion fruit =) Mmmm, divine!
