Australians....Help

I have to bake some things for a meeting Thursday night. This is a monthly meeting and each month I do desserts from a different country. This month I've decided to do Australian Desserts because Australia Day is this month. I know i'm going to do Lamingtons but I need a couple more desserts that are Australian.

Can anyone help out?

Wicca?

Well my favorite Australian dessert is
Pavlova.



4 lg Egg whites
1 c Sugar, castor
1 t Cornflour
1 t Vinegar
1 t Vanilla flavour

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. With an electric mixer
beat the egg whites until soft peaks form, then
gradually add the sugar. Beat until firm.

Add the cornflour, vinegar and vanilla. When
combined, turn out onto a flat tray that has been
greased and dusted with cornflour. Try a circular
shape with slightly more mixture at the edges so that
it may be served by placing goodies in its centre
depression.

Cook in a pre-heated, cool (250 degrees F.) oven for
one hour. When cooked, turn the oven off, leave the
oven door slightly ajar, and allow to cool slowly in
the oven. This slow cooling works to prevent the loss
of too much height. Serve cold, with whipped cream and
fresh fruit pieces, strawberries and kiwi fruit for
example.

Re:
Thanks for the recipe. I'd heard of it but never tried it before. By the way, what is castor sugar? I've seen it in a lot of Australian recipes but never in an American recipe.
