The glorious days of summer has come to an end. As I write this blog post after a month’s gap, only to realise that today is the first day of Autumn. Here comes a brand new season with fresh new produce and a fresh focus on what we eat !!! This year, I have missed only few weeks of summer as I was in India for our annual family vacation. Basically I felt it was a quick shift between a mild winter of India and hot breezy days of Aussie Land. A few weeks of respite though…
There is absolutely no denying that why majority of folks love summer and go ga ga over it. I reckon the logic is simple. The sun with its full glory nourishes plants that in turn nourishes us, giving us the positive energy and drive. To me, sunny days of Australia means dreamy picnics, barbecues with colourful salad spreads and of course pavlova. It’s simply the promise of hope, abundance and plentiful harvest after rainy or long winter.
As we wait for the new season to unfold and wave bye to the glorious warm days of summer, some of its luscious fruit still lingers. So it was a perfect excuse to celebrate with a fruity indulgence – plum blackberry pavlova, where it’s warm enough to spend time outdoors but cool enough to make the kitchen extra inviting, Now that the schools and activities have resumed with full momentum, my boys have been begging me to bake something delicious and pavlova being their all time favourite dessert was my first choice. Jazzing it up with those juicy plums and bountiful blackberries that are still in its glory was picture perfect. I promise you that this plum blackberry pavlova recipe is a keeper and I have baked it countless times with friends begging for the recipe.. The best part of pavlova is that it is pretty versatile dessert and can be adapted to any season. The base remains the same but it’s with the topping that you can play around depending upon the mood and occasion. Our family’s favourite is still the Mango pavlova and but I secretly love my own version of Rose and watermelon Pav Go ahead and make this luscious treat that promises to make this desirable marshmallow-y centre that contrasts beautifully with the crisp exterior.
