This is the first time I try pavlova. I didn’t know what it is when my son baked it. So, I did a bit of googling and found that it is supposed to be a New Zealand national dessert or something and the name comes from a Russian ballet dancer.
Don’t ask me for the recipe because it is not easy to bake it. The first time my son tried, it failed. This is his second attempt.
Initially, I thought it is just a crispy piece of egg white and sugar. However, the inside of the pavlova is filled with fluffy and soft egg white which has been slow-baked.
My son topped it with whipped cream and fresh fruits and canned Mandarin oranges.
This dessert looks kind of fragile and dainty so it is not something that we can easily bake and keep. Ever tried pavlova?
