Today’s recipe is another cake that is a real temptation: Molly cake with Pavlova meringue, Camy cream and fresh fruit. The Pavlova part is slightly more carmelized than the classic white meringue so that it can support the weight of the abundant cream made with mascarpone and condensed milk. Everything is placed on a soft Molly cake that uses whipped cream in its batter which makes it particularly delicate. The cake is garnished with fresh fruit and is perfect for different seasons. The meringue remains soft inside while the outside is crunchy and delightful. A delicious light combination, perfect for practically any occasion.
