Something I always wanted to attempt was to make a Pavlova! I have seen numerous videos and recipes ranging from various flavors to difference in sizes.
The recipe I used was for a Mixed Fruit Pavlova found on Epicurious. There is a detailed video and recipe which can be found HERE.
In the Pavlova I made, the fruit used were Mango, Strawberries, Grapes and Blackberries. Pleasantly surprised in the outcome of the meringues, which were chewy on the outside and soft on the inside. Filling the meringue with the pastry cream made the ideal "nest" for the fruit. By topping the fruit with apricot glaze was just the thing to bind all the fruit together, and the raspberry sauce was heavenly!
These will most definitely be on my list for summer desserts... something that is light and doesn't make you feel guilty after devouring every bite!
I am hosting my first ever blog event, a Mothers Day tribute the weekend of May 8th. Please stop in and post photos and recipes or special heirloom items from your Mother and Grandmothers! If all goes well, I will have Mr. Linky up and running!
