A VALENTINE’S DAY DESSERT

Hi!
Here we are: valentine’s day! Are you ready? Have you bought or prepared a gift? Commercial or not, we cannot escape from this celebration.
If you plan to organize a dinner at home to celebrate, or just because you cannot say no to a dessert, here comes an easy and quick recipe but delicious as well.
As a lover of meringue and because red fruits are sexy, I wanted to prepare a PAVLOVA!
I tried this dessert for first time not long ago. A friend from New Zealand baked one once. That was like a revelation so I would like to say: thank you Natasha!

Happy Valentine's day

 

INGREDIENTS:

2 white eggs
120g icing sugar (for the meringue)
20cl heavy cream
50g icing sugar (for the Chantilly)
250g red fruits
Crystalized rose petals for the decoration

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Prepare the meringue: place the white eggs in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Beat the white eggs, at medium speed with the icing sugar. Increase speed to medium-high and beat until the meringue becomes thick.
Remove the bowl from the mixer and put the meringue in a piping bag and pipe it forming 2 hearts on a paper parchment. Add some meringue to the border of the hearts to make it like a recipient (see pictures). this will avoid that the cream goes out.
Bake it at 120º during 20-25 minutes.

2. Prepare the Chantilly: to make the process easier, use heavy cream (at least 30% fat). Whip the cream with 50g of icing sugar until you get a Chantilly

3. The assembly: fill the meringue-heart with Chantilly and place the red fruit on top.

4. Enjoy it!
