About this recipe
For those who don't know what Pavlova is, it is a French dessert made with meringue and whipped cream
Despite its name which sounds like Russian, it is a French dessert that I had never tried before. And when I saw this bûche Pavlova, I thought I should give it a try. A bûche is a long dessert made for the holidays. Back then, it was simply a Yule Log, but nowadays a bûche is a long dessert that looks different than a yule log
This Pavlova dessert has become a huge hit and by popular demand I make it year after year. It has a base layer of meringue, topped with mascarpone vanille cream, with an insert of raspberry jam
I fell in love with this dessert, and friends ask me this buche year after year for the holidays. And it has become so popular, that I also serve it in summer. Everybody loves this buche, children and adults.
I am showing you all the steps in the video below. Seems a bit long, but it's easier than you think. Just think of how proud you will be of yourself when all your friends will taste and love this beautiful dessert !
Modifications to the original recipe
● I added the raspberry confit (jam), as I thought it would add a great fruit taste, and that was a wise decision. If you want to skip a step, you may simply substitute it with a raspberry jam and not make the confit yourself
