Why does my pavlova go so wrong?

Q. My sister in Australia sent me a recipe for pavlova, but whenever I try to make it everything goes horribly wrong. Any idea what the problem might be?

A. Hmm, “Goes horribly wrong” is a bit vague.

Assuming that you are somewhere that isn’t Australia, it could just be that you are doing everything upside down.

More likely though is that your eggs are the wrong size, Australian egg sizes are quite a bit smaller than those in Europe or the US – see here: Egg Sizes.
