Pavlova = Perfect Summer Dessert

Updated: Jul 2, 2020

Pavlova is an Australian dessert with layers of meringue filled with whipped cream and fruit.

I had never had it before living in the UK and it’s the perfect summer dessert. I highly recommend trying it with fresh cream and your favorite summer fruit. 👌🏽


  • 6 egg whites

  • dash of salt

  • 1 tsp cream of tartar

  • 1 2/3 cup sugar

  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1-2 Tbsp powdered sugar

  • Summer fruits of choice (such as, peaches, raspberry, strawberries, blackberries)


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees

  2. Make meringue, by whipping 6 egg whites with dash of salt until foamy

  3. Then add, 1 tsp cream of tartar and 1 2/3 cup sugar, 2 Tbsp cornstarch and beat until stiff, shiny peaks form.

  4. Line baking sheets with parchment and shape meringue into 3 equal circles.

  5. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes

Make a whipped cream to spread in between layers and on top of pavlova

1. Whip 1 cup heavy cream with 1-2 Tbsp powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla

2. Top with your favorite summer fruits! I used blackberries, raspberries, peaches and lemon thyme sprigs.
