Pavlova Cake.









Ingredients:

6 egg white.
½ teaspoon cream of tartar.
½ teaspoon white vinegar.

3- Form two discs over waxed paper and place on a baking sheet, bake at 100°C for about 2 hours or until it forms a slim crust. Take out from oven and let cool.
To assembly the cake
1- Place one meringue disk on a plate and cover with whipped cream, on top of this, place the other disc of meringue and the rest of the whipped cream, decorate with the fruits .


Caramel Sauce.


For this Caramel sauce i used evapotated milk instead of cream, it is delicious.


Ingredients:


6 tablespoons unsalted butter.
¼ teaspoon salt.
1 cup white sugar.
1 cup evaporated milk.

1- Heat sugar on moderately high heat in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. As the sugar begins to melt, stir slowly with a whisk .
2- As soon as all of the sugar crystals have melted immediately add the butter and salt to the pan. Whisk until the butter has melted and it look homogeneous.
3- Once the butter has melted add the evaporated milk to the pan (Add the it all at once, keeping a bit of distance from the pan so as not to splash your hand with hot liquid) and with a wooden spoon stir the sauce for 8 minutes.Turn off the heat.
4-Let cool.
