Just when you know there is no room left out comes the Pavlova.
At Christmas time, and indeed any other time, you can’t forgo your share of the Pavlova. There is always room for more calories.
Pavlova is a meringue dessert named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova.
It is a meringue cake with a crisp crust and soft, light inside, usually topped with whipped cream and fruit, in this case strawberries.
The dessert is believed to have been created in honor of the dancer either during or after one of her tours to Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s.
