Pavlova Day

How to have a lovely day in the school holidays.

First we went out  to our local fruit farm and did some picking of raspberries and strawberries.

Then there was the baking of the meringue. I have to say I can not take much credit for this. The only bits I did were to help separate the egg whites, clear up the dropped egg from the kitchen floor, and the oven part. But the rest was done by Frankie, as I was fiddling around with some knitting pattern, as is my way these days.

Forgot to take a photograph before we had cut into it, which is a shame as it did look very good.

Anticipation is half the enjoyment.

That is one happy boy! 

This is the recipe copied into Frankie's recipe book. The only difference is she made one big pavlova, instead of individual ones.


  1. We went raspberry picking last week then made raspberry ice cream and jam (now on the blog). My choice was for Pavlova like yours, adore it and want a piece just seeing yours here. but was overruled by the kids, might have to show them yours now! Thanks for linking up to Country Kids.

  2. This looks sooooooo delicious!

  3. It looks amazing!
    I come from Australia and LOOOOVE pavlova, but haven't made one in years.
    Hmm, I sense a pavlova in our very near future ;-))

  4. Yum, looks wonderful. I love that your little one is making her own cook book, what a great idea!
