Pavlova is one of the most consumed cakes across the country on May 17.

Originally, the pavlova probably originated in Australia or New Zealand, but the meringue-based cake has become a regular on Norwegian tables. No wonder – the cake looks great and spices up most tables with great colors.

What’s so great about cake is that there are hundreds of ways to make a pavlova, it’s easy to make and can be topped with almost anything.

Our culinary expert, Simen Vatne, has what to say about pavlova:

The pavlova is the perfect cake for hectic days like May 17 because it can be prepared several days before serving. As for the day itself, it is often hectic and there are many other things to think about. The pavlova base can be frozen so that during the day you just have to throw in the filling and then it’s ready to serve. It takes a maximum of 10 minutes!
