Strawberry Rose Pavlova



It’s officially strawberry season! And after downing several (fifteen?) cartons of these delectable little berries fresh, you might be looking for a way to showcase them, which is where this dreamy pavlova comes in, courtesy of Jen. The French love to eat their strawberries with a little pile of sugar, and I think of this dessert (starring Didi Davis’s Rose Sugar) as the gussied up version. This would make a divine potluck dish. -Amy


  1. Bake a fluffy meringue (like this one) using a unique sugar like Didi Davis’s Rose Sugar.
  2. Whip up some whipped cream (like Alton Brown’s super simple one) using some more of that special sugar.
  3. Spread said whipped cream on said fluffy meringue, and top generously with fresh berries.

    Am I the only one that sees a blank spot for directions? Could be that I’m trying to view it on mobile, so just wanted to double check! Thanks Maggie, looks delish!

      Hi Bonnie! Your phone wasn’t playing tricks on you; there was some missing information. We’ve fixed it and really appreciate you giving us the heads up. The “directions” are now higher up, and are more of a suggestion on how to add a fun new flavor to a traditional pavlova than an actual recipe. If, however, you’re in need of a recipe, may we suggest Maggie’s Summer Pavlova: Thanks again for reaching out and happy summer!

        Perfect, thanks for the reply, Kate! Thanks also for leaving a link to the recipe. Looks yummy!
