Over this holiday season my sister-in-law (SIL)  and niece came to visit.  While here my SIL  made Russian salad with homemade mayo, which left me with a lot of egg white.  I found Povlova as one of the things I could make to use up the egg whites.

The kicker was, I had never had this dish before so I was unsure as to what the end product should be like.  I looked up several recipes and videos online and ultimately followed a Martha Stewart recipe and a Simply Recipes post.

I did mix the cornstarch with the sugar before adding it to the egg whites.  Once the whites where at a stiff peak I folded in a teaspoon of vanilla and a teaspoon of lemon juice.

This dish was unbelievably easy and delicious.  I think that I will try reducing the sugar from   1.5 cups to only 1 cup to reduce the sweetness a little.
