Pavlova quest part III

The quest continues! Here's the outcome of the Christmas 2016 bake, using the quantities and method described in part II, but tweaking the cook times.

134g egg whites
X1.65 = 220g caster sugar

Beat egg whites and pinch sugar to soft peaks
Add sugar gradually on speed 6
3-4 mins

Increase speed to 10 and beat 5-6 mins

Preheat oven to 130
Shelf = position 4 (second from bottom)
Turn down to 110 and set to bottom element only
After 45 mins turn down to 90
Bake 90 min

Pretty good, cracking minimal, but still large air gap at top so still baked too long
See photo, but this was taken after I pushed the top in to fill it with cream
