pavlova

I promised a dessert post from last week's barn dinner... it won't win any food photography awards, but please believe me when I say that this dish will make you a champion in the minds of any of your guests. How had I never experienced PAVLOVA before! My mother loves trying new recipes out for crowds... she's super brave. These individual meringue shells were topped with fresh whipped cream, sliced peaches and blueberry syrup. One of our guests didn't eat sugar... lucky me! I ate hers, too. My mother made two extra shells. We polished them off standing at the kitchen sink after everyone had left. Shhhh! That freakin' good!


Google Pavlova recipes... and look for one that uses vinegar, as she did. Here's one that's from my favorite science museum in the world. Tell your kids you have a new science project to whip up... you'll be an instant hero, promise!
extra bonus points: it's a gluten-free dessert dream!

  5. Yeah! My friend used to make "forgotten cookies"--meringue base, with chocolate chips mixed in--using the fruit changes it into a good-for-you dessert, doesn't it?

  7. Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova.[1] It is a meringue dessert with a crisp crust and soft, light inside.[2] The name is pronounced /pævˈloʊvə/ or /pɑːvˈloʊvə/, unlike the name of the dancer, which was /ˈpɑːvləvə/ or /ˈpævləvə/.[3][4][5]our website

  8. We made our very first pavlova this summer as well. Seriously delicious and simple to make! I loved how easy it was to incorporate seasonal fruit into the dish. Yours looks wonderful too!

  10. Hi there!

    After reading this post, I got a watery mouth, if that is correct in English. My first pavlova was at a wedding of some good friend in England. Even it has been nearly five years ago, I still can taste it! There ARE wonderful!

    Thanks for that reminder.

    Have a fab weekend. ines from Germany
