Although we tested different methods and recipes for the most traditional New Zealand Dessert: The Pavlova - we couldn’t get the meringues to turn out in the short time we have for cooking classes. Enter this delicious stand-in dessert for Upside Down Gooey Kiwi Cakes. We like them even better. The kiwi gives the cakes a pleasant sourness, and the texture is gooey from the pectin in the kiwi, which we think your kid chefs will love. The cakes are sweet enough without the frosting, but extra delicious with it. You could opt to dust your cakes with powdered sugar OR drizzle them with a glaze made from powdered sugar and orange juice instead of making the Sweet Cream Frosting. It’s up to you and your kids.
Kiwi fruit presents a great reminder for kids not to judge a book by its cover because what’s inside is so very often different than what we judge by the outside. ENJOY baking up these sweet-sour, super tasty cakes and traveling to The Land of the Middle Earth this week with your kids at home!
