A showstopper rustic berry dessert with that marshmallowy centre and slight citrus taste…

This berry pavlova tastes like roasted marshmallows as the inside is soft and gooey with a slight crunch to the surface. This was my first time making pavlova and it did not work the way I intended it to, but after a few altercations the end result tasted phenomenal. In the beginning the base turned out uncooked with not enough rise as apparently I did not whip the egg whites into a solid enough mixture and the oven was not in the correct mode that circulates the air. So, in the end I actually flipped the meringue over and cooked it a bit more and it turned out great despite the rustic shattered look of it. So when you do this, make sure you whip a solid enough meringue and place your oven in the right mode! The pavlova is topped with a lemon zest whipped cream and lots of freshly picked berries from the forest. This sweet sensation is an explosion of delicious summer flavours with its first soft bite.



Pavlova base

  • 4 egg whites
  • 2dl sugar
  • 1tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp vinegar


  • 3dl whipped cream
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • lemon zest of 1 lemon
  • Wild strawberries
  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • thyme or mint


Preheat oven to 130 celsius ( circulated air mode in oven/kiertoilma vaihde uunissa in finnish)

Whip the egg whites in a large bowl until firm. Mix the vanilla sugar, corn starch and sugar together and then combine it to the egg whites a little bit at a time continuously whisking. Add in the vinegar.

Add the whipped meringue onto a baking tray that is lined with a baking sheet. Place the baking tray into the oven for 1 1/2. Let the cake cool down.

Make the whipped cream (cream, sugar, vanilla sugar, lemon zest) and spread it on top of the pavlova. Garnish with lots of berries of choice. I used wild strawberries, blueberries and regular strawberries and a few twigs of thyme for a bit of green.
