Nigella's Raspberry Pavlova....For Everyone Who Helped!



Thank you for the advice via comments and email. I've had another poke round in the template but am, as ever, scared to mess the whole lot up so I'll wait for some answers to come from Blogger.

So this was the reward. I intended copying the whole lot out of my cook book but have just found it here. I'm thrilled to discover there's so many Nigella recipes on the internet so I'll be off to browse in a minute after I've persuaded you to try this Pavlova.

I think of myself as a bit of a dessert connaisseur and I'll gladly sacrifice any part of a menu to ensure I don't miss out on the sweeties. I've had some scrumptious ones but this is the best dessert I've ever eaten. Bar none..And, what's better, it's easy to make and it looks even more delicious when it's cracked round the sides so you don't have to aim at the pristine perfection of a white meringue. Great for slaphappy cooks like me!

Before you start cracking those eggs here's some advice: do NOT skip the chocolate chips and unless you're really pushed for time, make them yourself..it takes seconds with a heavy sharp knife. Second piece of advice then I'll let you get started: raspberries work best tastewise. There's just something about the marriage of raspberries and dark chocolate. Oh yummy!! My mouth's watering.

You owe me one, Nigella!

Hi Angela,

Thanks for your comment!

That pavlova looks amazing! As an eggless eater, it's not something I'll be able to recreate until I've worked out how to make egg-free meringue, but one day... one day. I totally agree with making your own chocolate chips though. It's so satisfying! All the shavings that run off the knife's edge? Perfect accent to an afternoon well spent and a lovely teaser of goodies to come...

Do you think blackberries would work too? The purple stickiness makes my heart beat faster.

Hi there :) Thanks for your nice comment the other day. By the way, while there is some dispute, we kiwis invented the pavlova (never believe what the Australians might tell you!)

Oh my god....this looks so so yummy and I have a horrible sweet tooth.

This is torture to see and not be able to taste...I don't like to cook :( sorry, I know that's terrible, but I don't, but my hubby likes to cook, so he might give it a try :)

Oh Angela...you are mean ;-)))))

hugs to you sweetie
