Pavlova is the light, fluffy dessert you absolutely have to try this summer

It’s fitting that Pavlova was named after a Russian prima ballerina. Anna Pavlova was beautiful, delicate, and ethereal — just like the treat that bears her name.

Pavlova, which was invented in either Australia or New Zealand (both countries take credit for it), is made from egg whites and sugar, and is often topped with fruit, sorbet, or ice cream. Try this lemon blueberry version for a true taste of summer.

You will need:

Fill your Pavlovas with lemon curd, then top the entire creation with fresh berries.
