Have you ever had Pavlova or even heard of it? It is a meringue-based dessert that is named after Anna Pavlova, a Russian ballerina and is quite popular in Australia. You can top it with whatever fruit you want but I prefer Berry Topped Pavlova.

The base is meringue – egg white and sugar that’s baked, creating a crisp crust with a soft and airy inside. You top it with whipped cream, typically not sweetened (but I like to add a little sugar), and fresh fruit. As much as I love a rich chocolate turtle brownie, the kind of dessert I crave in the summer is something light and refreshing like Mini Berry Tarts, Strawberry Fluff, and this Berry Topped Pavlova.

This dessert really doesn’t take much work at all, you just have to prepare it in advance to give it time to cool. It takes all of 5 minutes to get the meringue whipped up and in the oven. Once it’s done baking, just let it completely cool on a wire rack. After it is room temperature you can assemble it or keep it uncovered in a cold oven even overnight. If placed in the fridge, the delicious crispy shell will become soft.

Top the meringue with whipped cream, fresh sweet berries and a few mint leaves for decoration.
