Is there anything as delicately elegant as a good pavlova?
Pavlolva is a dessert named after Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova, which basically tells us that pavlova is the darling of all things sweet. It is a meringue cake that comes with a crisp crust and a soft, light dessert and is usually topped with fruits and whipped cream.
I know this recipe is probably present on your dinner tables whole year around, but let me show you 12 pavlovas done in absolute perfection.
I am sure you won’t be able to resist!
This might just be the perfect pavlova for the chocolate lover. Indulge in chocolate meringue, ganache, hazelnuts, and whole chocolate balls which are used quite generously in this recipe.
This recipe calls for brown sugar, which gives the dessert a unique golden brown colour. It also elevates the usual flavour of pavlova!

Breaking away from the usual whitewashed pavlova is this maple and apple based dessert, which brings earthy colours to the table. Brandy gives it a deeper flavour, too!
Mangoes and passionfruit bring pavlovas an adorable (and totally delish) tropical vibe! The summery, pretty look of this dessert will surely bring sunshine onto your table. Not Quite Nigella has some wonderful recipes – we here at Stay at Home Mum are big fans of hers!
If there’s anyone that’s ~arguably~ better than pavlovas, it must be ice cream. This no-churn pavlova ice cream is made with berries and passionfruit, but really, you can use any fruit you have access to and it will still turn out amazing.

Does this almost sound like something you can eat for breakfast to you? Because it totally does for me… (just don’t tell my kids). Another thing that makes this recipe great? Okay make that two more things: it’s kosher and dairy-free!
Pavlovas are already pretty as a picture, but this is another level of pretty! But what is beauty without substance, right? Well, good news is that this dessert is as delicious as it looks. The tang of lemon perfectly complements everything else!
