Pavlova "call me cup cake"

Pavlova is a meringue based dessert named after russian ballet dancer "Anna Pavlova". It is a meringue dessert with a crisp crust, light and soft from inside. The dessert is the popular dish and important cuisine of Australia and New Zealand. It is a dessert most identified with the summer time, but is eaten all the year round.

Pavlova can be make in form of birthday cakes or as cupcakes. I personally prefer to make this dessert in form of cup cake as it can be eaten whole at one time like cup cakes. That is how I called pavlova a "cup cake". Pavlova is the combination of meringue, exotic fruits and whipped cream.

After considering several ideas, I have decided to do pavlova and here the recipe goes with the real images attached.

Caster sugar         120 gm
Salt                      1 pinch
Melted chocolate  50 gm
Whipped cream    50 gm
Fresh fruits            As required
Fruit glaze            60 ml

Method :
 1. Make a meringue of egg whites, caster sugar and salt.

 2. Place the mixture into pipping bag fitted with a star nossel.

 3. Pipe out round on a butter paper to resemble small nest.

 4. Bake at 120 C for 40 minutes.
 5. Remove from the oven and cool.

 6. Coat the pavlova with melted chocolate and whipped cream into hallow.
 7. Place the exotic fruits in the whipped cream
 8. Apply fruit glaze over it ,which help the fruit to remain fresh
