Easy peasy pav

Now we cross off the 3rd recipe from A Treasury of New Zealand Baking. Last night The Mister decided to give the all-in-one pav a go. He had to become acquainted with Mother’s 42 year old Kenwood mixer (appliances don’t last like they used to, although having said that at the end of the 10-minutes beating time it leaked machine oil into my hand when I removed the beater) which made him feel like it wasn’t really hand made seeing as the mixer did all the hard work.

It was a great success! I drew a circle on the baking paper to help him with a nice round shape.


It rose up and up and only cracked a tiny bit – Mother was jealous!


It was a great mound of light crisp meringue outer and delicate marshmallow inner.


And I’ve just found this photo from Christmas 2005 when The Mister actually  made his first pav, and the niece was supervising back then too! (She’s very amused to see this photo, “look how little I am and look how long and funny his hair is!!”)

Is that tall blondie Georgia? Crikey, she’s shot up. Georgia’s right about the Mister’s hair… looks so much better these days!

Yep that’s Georgia although in that photo she’s standing up on something so isn’t really that tall! Here’s a better photo of her & me but not long now until she’s as tall as me!
