Chocolate Pavlova easy dessert recipe

chocolate pavalova easy gourmet dessert recipe how to cook that best cooking blog
To quote a friend… “I HAVE to get the recipe off you for that pavlova…I think I am having withdrawls this week and can still taste how divine it was!” If you’ve never had it then imagine chocolate mousse encased in a crisp meringue shell, topped with cream, chocolate and strawberries. Yummm! And the best thing… it is easy to make.

6 Eggs separated
300g (10.58 ounces) Caster sugar
50g (1.76 ounces) Milk chocolate
3 tablespoons Cocoa powder
To decorate:
400ml cream
200g (7.05 ounces) quality milk chocolate made into chocolate shards
1 Punnet of stawberries, washed and hulled

Grate the chocolate and sieve the cocoa powder, set aside.
Whisk the egg whites until stiff, add the sugar and continue whisking until firm.
Fold in the cocoa and chocolate until just combined (if you over mix it will become runny).

Place onto a baking tray that is lined with baking paper and spread into a thick circle.
Bake in a slow oven (150oC) for 1 hour or until the outside is crisp.
Allow to cool on the tray then transfer to a serving dish. Smother in cream and decorate with chocolate chards and strawberries or raspberry sauce.
Original recipe source: Unknown, I copied it out of a magazine when waiting at the doctors. The fact that I was looking at a magazine dates this event to pre-kids – so at least 9 years ago.

    Hi Ann

    In another chocolate pavalova recipe that I found, the chef used a teaspoon of Balsamic Vinigar. I wonder what that does??

    Hi, Ann!

    I have been watching your videos and browsing through your recipes for quite some time and I love them all! Today I tried this recipe of yours as a dessert for iftar but I only made 1/3 of the recipe and used mini white chocolate chips and added a dash of vanilla extract since I didn’t have any milk chocolate bar nor cocoa powder. It was my first attempt and I am glad that my fiancé and his family loved it! They said it tasted so light and they love how each bite just melts in the mouth.

    Thank you, Ann for being such a great inspiration not just to me but to your fans and followers!! Hugs and kisses all the way from Malaysia!

    Hi, im eager to try this recipe, but do you think it would work if i wanted to make small portions individually instead of having to cut it?

    hi anne! i have been browsing the internet for days already just to look for a site that would show easier steps of baking for starters like me and thank God I found yours.

    anyway, i’ve never baked a cake before. so i would just like to ask if I could do this in a turbo boiler because that’s what I use for baking cupcakes. and if yes, what temperature should I set for this.

    thank you s much. your site is a blessing for rookies like me. God speed!

      Hi Maria, i do not have a turbo boiler but I just read a few forums and it seems that most people trying to bake a cake in them are having problems with them rising unevenly and overcooking on top.

    Much love from Denmark
