Preheat oven to 140 C / Gas mark 1. Grease a baking tray, line it with baking parchment and sprinkle a little water over paper.
In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Beat in water, then mix in cornflour, vanilla, vinegar and salt.
Pour entire meringue mixture onto the centre of the baking tray. Pavlova will spread as it bakes.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Turn oven off and leave Pavlova in the oven until cool. Turn upside-down onto plate and top with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
For the whipped cream, use an electric mixer to whip whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
