Eton mess new HERO ef9cbb98 c142 4f2a b2c0 4696c591fd8a 0 472x310

A true British classic, this simple Eton mess recipe is the perfect dessert for summer and really heroes the sweet flavour of seasonal strawberries. Using just three ingredients (strawberries, cream and meringues), it's super quick and easy to whip up when in a hurry, yet is still indulgent enough to impress any unexpected guests. 

  1. Chop 100g of the strawberries and press through a fine sieve using the back of a wooden spoon, to make a smooth purée. Set aside.
  2. Quarter or roughly chop the rest of the strawberries. Whip the cream in a large bowl to soft peaks. Break the meringue nests into small pieces then gently and lightly fold into the cream with the chopped strawberries.
  3. Divide between 4 small bowls or glasses and serve each one drizzled with the strawberry purée.

Cooking tip

Give your Eton mess an aromatic twist by adding elderflower cordial and lemon to the recipe.
