It’s the new trend of the Parisiennes. The pavlova, an airy dessert by excellence « meringue + whipped cream + red fruit» pays homage to the famous Russian dancer. An ultra-light and delicate dessert, naturally!

For the meringue:
2 egg whites
110 gr of powdered sugar
1 dash of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of corn starch
For the chantilly:
25 cl of liquid fleurette cream
2 tablespoons of mascarpone
2 tablespoons of glazed sugar
For the decor:
200 gr of red fruit (raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries…)
10 cl of raspberry topping

Preheat the oven to 180° C.

1.) In a salad bowl, beat the egg whites into snow peaks and the powdered sugar.
2.) Incorporate the lemon juice and the starch, mix delicately.
3.) On a plaque covered with waxed cooking paper, form 4 meringue circles. Using the back of a spoon dipped in water, create a slight dos hollow at the centre of the meringues.
4.) Lower the thermostat to 120 °C. Bake for 1 hour, turn off the oven, leave the door ajar and allow the meringue to dry for at least 2 hours.
5.) In a stainless steel bowl, beat the cold cream into a firm chantilly, incorporate the glazed sugar and the mascarpone, very delicately.
6.) Divide the chantilly on the pavlovas. Decorate them with fresh fruit and eventually add a topping.
