Pavlova with Passion Fruit Curd and Berries

An exquisite recipe for pavlova filled with passion fruit curd, lightly sweet homemade whipped cream, and fresh seasonal berries.

– Why do you need to make this dessert?

Because it is super easy, so beautiful and, extremely delicious…seriously…I have made this pavlova many times and trust me, people that tried it will remember you forever.

– What can you make in advance?

For this recipe you can make in advance the meringue shell and keep in an air-tight container and the passion fruit curd.

On the day you are serving the pavlova you will need to whip the cream, wash the berries and assemble…which is a lot of fun, since all the “hard” part has been prepared.

– Can I use other fruits?

Absolutely, I have made the same recipe using kiwi, mango, grapes, pineapple, dragon fruit…you name it. Use whatever fruit is in season.

– What to do if not serving the pavlova at home?

I did it many times…I pack all the components of the pavlova separately and place in an insulated container and assemble when it is almost time to serve. Trust me, you will be surrounded by all the guests while you are assembling the dessert which make it even more remarkable. Moreover, you will hear lots of “oh”, “uh”, “wow”, and everyone will want to sink their fork in it.
