Pavlova is a wonderful summer recipe. This recipe is really easy to make and it only contains few ingredients - the preparation time is normally under 30 minutes. A Pavlova can be made in many different sizes and variations. In this recipe we have been a bit nontraditional and made several cakes with a diameter of about 8 cm (3 inch) - this size fits perfectly as a single serving. Typically this cake is made as one larger cake. These Pavlovas are decorated with whipped cream, straw- and blueberries. We think this combination makes the cakes very colorful and gives them an amazing taste. If you haven't tried this cake before we can absolutely recommend you to try it - it's one of our favorite!
