    Chef floWer's Note:

    Pavlovas are a traditional Australian/New Zealand dessert. Normally served in a cake size but these are mini size perfect for the individual use. I used ready made Pavlova mini shells for the sheer convenience and use lactose free cream as Little Miss (DD) & my sister in law are lactose intolerant. This recipe comes from a book called 'Marie Clair Sweet' by Jody Vassallo.

      To make the lemon curd, put the lemon rind, lemon juice, sugar, eggs and butter in a heatproof bowl and whisk together.
    4. 4
      Place the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl is not sitting in the water. Stir for about 15 minutes, or until the curd is thick - do not allow it to boil. Lat plastic wrap on the surface and leave to cool. Fold on the whipped cream all through the curd. Spoon into the pavlovas and top with banana, mango and passionfruit.

      This dessert literally takes the cake. It is outstanding as Syd said. WOW! I have made Pavlovas before, but never these small ones, and never served this way. My favorite part had to be the passion fruit. The whole dessert had a fresh, clean, light taste on the tastebuds. Then the fruit and fresh lemon curd really brings it home. This has to be my favorite dessert so far this year! Made and Reviewed as a Recipeextra for ANZ Recipe Swap #25 - Thanks! :)

      FABULOUS!!!! I absolutely loved these! I had never made Pavlovas before, I actually had never eaten one either. Mine were a little crisp on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. The only caution I would give is to make sure you do not over beat the eggs when you add in the sugar or they will start to deflate. Delicious!

      OUTSTANDING, really OUTSTANDING! This was my first time making pavlovas, & I loved everything about this dessert ~ making the little shells, making the lemon curd [almost had to make a 2nd batch, 'cause I WANTED to eat the curd as soon as it was done!] & using mango AND passion fruit! I did top the little buggers off with 3-4 dried cranberries to give it a little more color, but that was it! Again, OUTSTANDING! Thanks for sharing!
