Eton Mess

The shops are full of big juicy strawberries at the moment and just in time as Wimbledon is coming up. But my favourite dessert to make with strawberries is Eton Mess.

The great thing about this recipe is in the name, 'mess' that you just have to get it all mixed together and then top it off with more strawberries.

Ingredients

1 heaped teaspoon of icing sugar
450g Strawberries (chopped)
1 pint Double Cream
2 large meringues

Method

1. Take half the strawberries and blend with the icing sugar to make a pureƩ

2. Whip the cream until thick

3. Break up the meringues and mix in to the cream

4. Add about 2 tablespoons of the pureƩ to the mixture to give a marble effect

5. Spoon some mixture in to a bowl / glass and top with strawberries and some more puree





If you are feeling fancy and want to add to the presentation, this dessert looks great served in a martini glass, or any other fancy glassware.
