* Simple dessert for failed Pavlova attempts -- My mother used to make the banana variety of this when she cooked her meringues a little too long or too hot. I've no idea of its origins.
* I can never make up my mind whether I prefer the strawberry or the banana version. Peach should be pretty good too, though I've never tried it.
* This is a neat way of saving a Pavlova attempt when the meringue part fails: it produces a delicious desert and no-one need ever know...
: Difficulty: very simple.
: Time: 10 minutes presuming you have the meringue available.
: Precision: No need to measure.
