Triple Layer Pavlova

I don’t normally think of dessert before I have eaten breakfast but who could resist this fabulous pavlova created by Brigid Gallagher for her birthday.. Will be over shortly …

IMG_6057In 2015, my pavlova style changed forever after witnessing Welsh actor Michael Sheen’s winning triple layer pavlova  on “Great British Comic Relief Bake Off. ” Michael used passion fruit and lemon curd for his filling – a beautiful combination.

I have used Michael’s winning filling in the past, but this week I could not find any passion fruit for my celebratory birthday pavlova.  Instead, I used fresh raspberries and blueberries which created a colourful display.

I promised my dear friend and inspirational cook Rhonda Sittig at The Thankful Heart blog a post on my creation, so I have included my recipe below:

  1. I used to manage a restaurant in Stratford, Ontario where they made the most fabulous Pavlova – named, as I am sure you all know, after the Russian ballerina. In my mind, just the mention of the word, would have me salivating like one of Ivan Pavlov’s dogs. As I become older, but not necessarily wiser, I try to limit my sugar intake – sometimes not successfully. However, I can live vicariously and drink up your recipe with fond memories. Thanks for the suggestion of what to do with the yolks – Crème brûlée – my second most favourite dessert. How long can I hold out?
