Buy a Pavlova?

By DavidL - 20 September 2012 16

I would like to buy a good pavlova.  However, every shop I contact has either closed down or doesn’t sell them.  Suggestions please but not if you last went there a year ago as it has probably gone.

No I can’t cook it:

(a) I would probably burn it and

(b) competition for the stove. 

If Woollie’s or Coles sell cases (I will check) I might go that route.

Suggestions for cream fillings with a mild (and mild tasting) alcoholic content also welcome.

Much thanks

David

I have to say that if it was a choice between a store bought, gooey, sloppy store bought pav and a homemade, crunchy on the outside, yet chewy on the inside you would have to choose the latter.

15 minutes to mix, pop in the oven and leave for 90 minutes… It’s just too easy.

Traditional topping of plain cream, passionfruit, banana and strawberries is my favourite but if you were after a bit of alcohol a big splash of baileys into the cream and top
with strawberries and shaved chocolate would be a winner.

I am passionate about pavs!

The cases from Coles and Woolies are fine. You could put a bit of Cointreau (for a citrus flavour) or Frangelico (hazelnut) into your cream to add a bit of zing.

You sound like a lumberjack amongst people. But eggier. Well done!

Buy a refrigerated pavlova case at Coles or Woolies, along with a few punnets of strawberries, some kiwi fruit and a tub of King Island cream and, hey presto, pavlova with not much fuss.

Woolies sell large pav cases.

And I agree, they are very easy to make. Access to the oven shouldn’t be a drama either – to have them turn out beautifully, you cook the pav the night before, and leave it in the oven overnight with the door propped open with a spoon. Next morning, you’re good to go.

The Woolies ones are ok, but nothing like a good home made one.

Best pavlova in Canberra is sold at the St Ninian’s Uniting Church fete, which is 3rd November if you can wait that long. They usually sell little pieces, but you could probably buy a whole one. Maybe ring them up?

I have seen people there ages before it officially opens trying to buy cakes. (How do I know this as I have no connection with this church? I am one of the cake buyers.)

St Ninian’s is in Lyneham, on Mouat Street/Brigalow corner.

They sell pavs at the Cheesecake Shop(s). I’m no connoisseur, but they taste good to me.

The Cheesecake Shop does them. I think Wollies may also but I’m not sure. I know they do mini-pavlova type things which you serve up one per person, they are in the bread isle usually.

I know you said you don’t want to make one, but truely they are very easy to make and they aren’t that easy to burn. They are also a cheap dessert if you make it yourself.

Coles sells them. And a Drambuie cream centre with toasted almonds would be great.
