Delicious - Rolled Pavlova Recipe

Rosewater, pistachio and raspberry Rolled Pavlova 

Hello dear friends
here at last is Jennie's Pavlova recipe I promised!

Rosewater, Pistachio & Raspberry rolled Pavlova
(A quintessential New Zealand dessert)

  • Sunflower or vegetable oil for greasing
  • 4 egg whites
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1-2 Tbsp rosewater. plus an extra 2 tsp
  • cup chopped raw pistachios
  • 300ml cream
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries

  1. Preheat oven to 150˚C. Grease the base of a 36cm x 26cm Swiss roll tin. Line with tin foil, brushing lightly with the oil. 
  2. Place the egg whites into a spotlessly clean bowl and beat until stiff peaks form. Beat in the sugar a couple of dessertspoons at a time, until the meringue is stiff and glossy.
  3. In a separate small bowl mix together the cornflour, vinegar and rosewater to form a runny paste and lightly whisk into the beaten meringue mixture. 
  4. Spread the meringue mixture into the prepared tin, making sure it is spread evenly into the corners. Sprinkle the top with the pistachios. Bake in pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes until firm but still soft in the centre. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.
  5. When completely cold, whip cream and extra rosewater to a thick but not too stiff consistency. Turn meringue out onto a large fresh sheet of tinfoil. Gently peel away the original tinfoil from the meringue. Spread meringue with whipped cream, avoiding the edges and scatter evenly with the raspberries. With the help of the tin foil roll up the meringue. Wrap rolled meringue in the tin foil and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. 
  6. To serve, cut into thick slices and serve with extra raspberries on the side.     
Bon appétit mon amis!

  2. Dearest Shane,
    Looks and sounds delicious but it is not on our diet due to the high cholesterol and high sugar for me...
    Hugs to you,

  3. Oh dear Shane,
    that Pavlova looks so yummy , uhhmmm I can almost taste it,-and if I had time, I would try your recipe, but for now, all my time is used on the shop, and creating.
    Thankyou dear it can be saved, and used later.

  4. Hello Shane
    Thank You so much for taking the time to visit my Blog, Adorn.
    Oh this looks positively divine and will taste as sweet as it looks.
    I shall say Goodnight from my part of the world, which is Scotland.

  5. Delicious and beautiful to look at. I look forward to the post about your garden tour.

  6. this looks so decadent-like a typical french dessert! thank you for the recipe Shane.

  7. Hey Shane! My ears pricked when I saw "rosewater". I have a bottle of the stuff and have plans to make Turkish Delight for the first time ever (because it's hard to come by here in the U.S. unless I luck out at one of the Brit stores).

    I can't do pistachios because of my hubby's allergies, but I do have a rolled pavlova recipe that maybe I could add the rosewater/vinegar/cornflour mixture to... hmmm :)

    thanks for the literal food for thought!

  8. Mmmm, now this sounds delicious. We love pavlova!

  9. Hi Shane, What a yummy dessert. Pavlova is delicious. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  10. This looks altogether too beautiful to eat! Yum!

  11. Hi Shane, this looks so good...the last time I was introduced to pavlova, my friend had just finished an exchange in Australia and served it to our mahjong group...it must be very popular down under !! I have made several, and will definitely attempt this lovely one as well...thx for sharing this, N.xo

  12. All I can say is "yum." I must say, the rosewater has me a bit perplexed, but I do love Pavlova -- it's nice to have a real recipe! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Oh my mouth is just watering sitting here and you would just so love the huge bowl of Logan berries that we picked this evening.
    Take care,
    Love xox

  14. Anything "quintessentially New Zealand" is perfect with me - I'll be right over (well some day soon hopefully) to have a taste of this pretty dessert.

    Meanwhile - I'm trying to cut back on sugar and dessert - just eating fresh fruit, of which raspberries are always my favorite.

    Warm hugs - Mary
