I made this for Easter for my in Laws that keep Kosher for Passover. They loved it and so did everyone else. It is a great dessert. I was nervous making this, but it was quite simple. I added a tangerine Glace to the fruit on top. It was FABULOUS!
I've made this a dozen times or more (with varied fruits) and it never fails. Even the folks who claim they don't like meringue enjoy this. A nice light ending to a meal.
It tastes as good as it looks. I used mango,strawberries and blueberries on top. It went great with port.
I have made this fifteen times this summer for different occasions. Everyone loves it and is impressed! At a bridal shower, several had spent time in Australia and complimented the pavlova as being better than they had ever had! Excellent recipe...
This is a winner. It has great 'wow' appeal for guests, but it easy to kick out especially if you make the meringue the night before and just leave it in the oven. It's crunchy but chewy--I had people ask if I would just make the chocolate meringues (mini's) to bring in for treats, so that's how good the foundation of this dessert is. The citrus whipped cream is a nice contrast and keeps the dish lighter on the palate. Make sure your fruit is fresh and ripe or you'll ruin an otherwise lovely dessert.
Fantastic. I never have eaten or made pavlova before and wasn't sure that a meringue based dessert would even taste good. But it was delicious...from the crunchy exterior to the very light and fluffy brownie-like interior, to the citrus whipped cream....a fantastic combination worthy of company.
