    About this recipe: Just like the title says - a delicious pavlova topped with banana slices, caramel sauce and whipped cream. The perfect combination of two very yummy desserts making one that will have you making it over and over again.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 200g caster sugar
    • 2 teaspoons cornflour
    • pinch of cream of tartar
    • 4 egg whites (at room temperature)
    • pinch of salt
    • dash of vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
    • 1 or 2 bananas
    • 230ml caramel sauce
    • 120ml double cream, whipped
    • grated chocolate to decorate

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:1hr30min  ›  Ready in:1hr50min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Draw an 20cm circle on the paper.
    3. In a small cup or bowl, stir together the sugar, cornflour and cream of tartar. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip the egg whites with salt, vanilla and vinegar until soft peaks form. Gradually sprinkle in the sugar mixture and continue to whip until stiff and shiny. Mound the mixture into the traced circle on the baking sheet. Flatten the top and smooth the sides using a metal spatula.
    4. Place in the preheated oven, and immediately reduce the heat to 150 C / Gas 2. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until a pale golden brown. Turn off the oven, and leave the door slightly ajar with the pavlova inside until completely cooled.
    5. Just before serving time, invert the cooled pavlova onto a serving plate, and top with slices of banana. Cover banana with caramel sauce. Top that with whipped cream and sprinkle with grated chocolate.

    Wow! Pleasantly surprised! Neither MrB or I are huge meringue fans (which explains why I'm not great at making it), but we both really loved this. No egginess! The crispy meringue blends beautifully with the soft, gooey caramel and bananas and the fluffy whipped cream. YUM. I served this a little differently because there were just 3 of us and I didn't want the leftover meringue to get soggy. I cut the meringue into pie slices, spooned the bananas and caramel on each slice, and then topped with whipped cream and chopped chocolate. Oh boy. Straight to my fanny. Thanks for the recipe!  -  27 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Amazing!!! This was my first experience with pavlova, and before I tried it I thought that the meringue part would be just kind of tasteless, but to those of you who don't know like I didn't, it is a rich, warm, toasty, delicious flavor! Combined with the caramel and bananas, it becomes something absolutely fabulous that is sure to impress all guests! I just made this for my family today, but next time we have guests over, I am making this! Thanks Trish, love it!  -  28 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Doubled the recipe and made a three-tier torte with whip cream and bananas spread between layers and on top. Topped with more whipped cream, and instead of the chocolate chips and caramel, I crushed up chocolate toffee Heath Bar and sprinkled it over the top of the torte. This was really delicious! This can also be made with strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries and chocolate.  -  20 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
