Pavolva (yes, named after the famous ballerina) is a Down Under invention. Not sure who claims original, NZ or OZ. Great for summer dessert … made in advance of serving as well. 3 Egg Whites 3 tablespoons of ice cold water 1 cup of sugar 1 teaspoon Vinegar 1 teaspoon Vanilla essence 3 teaspoons of cornstarch. Beat egg whites until stiff. add cold water and beat again. SLOWLY add the castor sugar while beating. Slow beater again and add vinegar, vanilla and cornstarch. Make a mound of the mixture on cooking paper on a cookie sheet. Bake at 150C (250-300 F) for approx. 45 mins. Leave to cool in the oven  Sometimes I do sometimes not. Experiment tis the only way! It should be crunchy on the outside, have light brown tinges and marshmallow inside....
