  • Powdered Sugar – to make whipped cream sweet.

Triple Berry Mini Pavlovas Tips

  • Baking meringue pavlova properly is the most crucial part, if you take them out of the oven too early they will be soft, if you keep them in the oven too long they will be burnt. My suggestion is that after the recommended baking time, turn off the oven and leave the mini pavlovas in the oven for at least 2-3 hours, longer the better. Sometimes, I bake them a day ahead and leave them in the turned off oven overnight.
  • The oven temperature shouldn’t be too high – 225F is enough to bake this little dessert.
  • The other important thing is not to stuff them with whipped cream right away as they will become soft. The best thing is to add the toppings before serving. Once you top them with whipped cream they can stay good for up to 2-4 hours. After that they will become softer.
  • You can use a Piping Bag to make small pavlovas, but I found an easier way. Just scoop the whipped egg whites with two large spoons and dollop them on the baking sheet. Then use a small spoon to make a hole to create a nest shape. You can watch the whole video how I do it below or find a video on my You Tube Channel.
  • If you don’t want to use parchment paper, you can use a Silpat mat that can be washed after each use and reuse it again for your baking needs.
  • What to do with egg yolks? You can make this yummy Key Lime Pie that everyone likes.

Pavlova FAQ’s

How long can you keep mini Pavlovas?

Mini pavlovas can be stored for a certain period of time, but their texture may change over time due to exposure to air and moisture. They will stay good without whipped cream for 1 to 2 days in airtight container at room temperature in a cool, dry place.
It’s worth noting that regardless of the storage method, pavlovas are best enjoyed on the day they are made or shortly thereafter. The delicate meringue shells can become soft and lose their crispness over time, especially when exposed to moisture. If you’re concerned about texture, you might consider assembling the pavlovas with toppings just before serving to ensure they remain as fresh as possible.

What toppings to add to mini pavlovas?

Mini pavlovas taste amazing with fruits, so any fruit is perfect, it combines a great taste of sweet meringue with whipped cream and fresh fruits. You can add also nuts, seeds, sprinkles, chocolate chips etc.

What can you use instead of cream in Pavlova?

You can add greek yogurt or any other type of yogurt, mascarpone cheese, whipped coconut cream etc.

  • Fold in lemon juice and cornstarch.

  • Use a piping bag or two large spoons to dollop portions of meringue on the baking pan. Form about 12 of them. Use a small spoon to make a hole in the center by sliding the bumpy back of the spoon from right to left to create a nest shape.
