Meringue/Chocolate Pavlova

Zygote's picture

I made the Chocolate Pavlova recipe I found in a previous issue, and it is by far the best dessert I have ever made!  Very easy, and knocked the socks off of my guests.  I have one question:  How long in advance can you make the meringue?  Will it keep its texture overnite in a Tupperware cake holder (air-tite).  I added one step - I melted some semi-sweet chocolte w/ a dab of Cointreau and brushed the top, so I could add the whipped cream before dinner and not make the meringue soggy.

I don't have the recipe you're talking about, but in general meringue will keep at room temperature for a couple of days (wrapped, of course).
I'd love it if you'd post the recipe.

In my experience Pavlova is more fragile than most meringues -- it has a soft center and does not like being moved around too much.  I think if you were to place it on a cake stand after baking and cover it with a heavy dome, you could probably serve it from the cake stand a few days later.  I wouldn't attempt to move it off the stand, though.  You also may lose some of the crunchy v. soft textural contrast that makes Pavlova so much fun.


I like your idea of the melted chocolate layer -- another textural contrast in addition to a spike of chocolate flavor!

I made these and put a scoop of vanilla ice cream in each and coated with meringue (like baked alaska) and froze for a week. Removed from freezer and put in a 400 F oven for 5 min til golden. Garnished with  raspberries, and serve immediatly.  Just fabulous.
