Pavlova

My cupcake fiend friend also ordered me to make her a pavlova for her birthday. OK, I'm not sure it was an order but it was definitely a strong hint.  At the moment I'm planning my wedding, and so we get together every Wednesday for "wedding wednesdays".  Somehow, a tradition has started where we have dessert.  As her birthday was on a Wednesday, I allowed her to choose.

We followed a Delia recipe because I'd misplaced my Mary Berry book. The recipe did not call for cornflour and vinegar as some meringue recipes so it was nice and simple to make. We started a little production line, I'd whisk and she'd add the sugar. Most of the sugar ended up in the bowl (there was a small collision between the whisk and the spoon), and we made a nice pavlova shape on a baking tray and whacked it in the oven to cook while we discussed ideas for wedding stationery.

Here it is all naked!


And here all dressed up ready to eat!



The pavlova was yummy, and did not last long!

Okay, I'm already completely addicted to this blog....

Have you tried Saint Nigella's pavlova recipe? The one with chocolate meringue, cream, raspberries, and shavings of dark choc on it? If not, I can highly recommend it!

I promise not to leave any more comments today.

Maybe!
