Meringue Mania – September Sweet Adventures Blog Hop

Brown sugar pavlova

I am seriously excited to be hosting this month’s Sweet Adventures Blog Hop. Remember the last few months how I said I kept forgetting to enter? Well this month I have no excuse! If you’ve never heard of it where have you been? No just jokes, don’t feel badly but do feel like you’ve been missing out.

Each month one lucky blogger gets to host the hop and pick a a theme and then bloggers from all around the world get together and share their sweet creations. At first I was a bit stumped on a theme and then it came to me… merinuges.

This month’s theme is Meringue Mania!


Choc-butterscotch pavlova

One of my all-time favourite desserts is a simple pavlova topped with whipped cream and berries. I could seriously eat it every day. I didn’t realise quite how obsessed I was with it until I had a look around the blog and discovered five variations!

It’s not just pavlova that I love though it’s anything with meringue. Remember those squiggly coloured meringues with the chocolate button eyes you get at the bakery (might be an Aussie thing)?

Choc-raspberry pavlova

They were my bakery treat of choice for years and years. I have gotten a bit fancier in my old age and now I’ll take them however they come. Are you game to get whipping?

Do you have a family lemon meringue pie recipe or vegan meringue icing? Are you famous for your meringue cake or do you make a mean meringue melting moment? Well get in that kitchen and start creating.

  • I made ice cream last night so I have FIVE egg whites in the fridge. Mebbe I need to rustle something up for this. 🙂

    Oh I’m a total sucker for a good pavlova!! Soft and gooey on the inside and crispy on the outside! Yum

  • Well.. this is the best theme from what I see here:) Congratulations on hosting.. I’ll be back to take a peak. If I have time I’ll join in the fun! I love Pavlova and meringue cookies. I’d love to see the one you mentioned, the Aussie treat? I don’t think I’ve seen them here in Canada ever? xx

    I’m a huge fan of meringue and it’s something that can be made with so few ingredients and they’re normally ingredients you have on hand. I’m loving the selection you’ve featured – so many amazing ideas with meringue xx
