My best pavlova recipes is a crunchy pavlova with red fruit and whipped cream. That's a treat and a delicious dessert recipe for Easter and Mother's Day.
It's always fun to come up after a nice dinner with a beautiful dessert. In winter, for example, after Christmas dinner, I often opt for a delicious dessert with chocolate, a mousse or tiramisu. Desserts that really belong to cold winter eves. But in the spring and summer I want to do something frivolers, airy and with some fruit. And a pavlova, with that delicious frothy confection is a great choice. And the best pavlova recipe for me is made from meringues with whipped cream and topped with delicious fresh fruit and floating in a raspberry sauce.
I chose here for dragon fruit, because it has such a beautiful color (which gives a truly spectacular result) and raspberries. In addition, what pomegranate seeds for a real beautiful display and additional vitamin C boost. And when you slice through this dessert and eat, all the layers together tastes superb. You spoon glides through the cream and then comes to the crunchy meringue correctly. In your mouth taste the tangy fruit first, then the rich cream and finally feel the meringue burst on your tongue. This is truly a dessert that you serve for example at Easter or Mother's Day. Everybody will love it.
- Meringue can be bought at the store, but you make them quite simple yourself. It takes yet little work, most time is used by drying the meringue in the oven. And if you have to little time on your dinner date day, make them a day in advance. If you store them in airtight you can keep them crunchy for a few days.
- The pavlova can only be assembled just before serving. The whipped cream reacts with the meringue, and melt away if you make it to early. But you can, of cours,e prepare the separate ingredients. Clean the fruit and store until use in the refrigerator, wrap the meringues airtight, whisk the cream and make the raspberry sauce. That way you can serve this elegant dessert in just 5 minutes!
It's a good taste!
