    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Beat egg whites and sugar in a large bowl with an electric whisk until stiff peaks form.
    3. In separate bowl, mix together vinegar, vanilla and cornflour until smooth. Pour cornflour mixture into egg white mixture and beat until thick and glossy, about 4 minutes.
    4. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof or baking paper and draw a 20 cm (8 inch) circle in the centre. Spoon or pipe meringe mixture inside the circle, to within a little less than 2 cm (1 inch) from the edge.
    5. Place in preheated oven, reduce temperature to 110 C / Gas 1/4 and bake 1 hour. Turn oven off and leave the pavlova to cool completely inside the oven.
