Eton Mess

Eton mess is a fabulous crowd pleaser and it is an absolute breeze to make. I serve mine in tall glasses and to make them even more special at a dinner party serve them in crystal. Delicious!


Eton Mess with a Raspberry Sauce

Serves 10

800g strawberries
The seeds of ½ a pomegranate
10 small meringues
300ml double cream
½ tablespoon caster sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
3 bananas
150g blueberries


Pour the cream into a large bowl. Whip the cream into stiff peaks, adding the sugar and vanilla towards the end.

Cut the stalk and leaves off the strawberries then quarter them.

Slice the banana into discs. Break the meringues into the cream, then pop the blue berries and strawberries in too. Gently stir through.

Scatter two-thirds of the bananas onto your serving platter. Dollop about ½ of the cream and meringue mixture on top and flatten into a disc covering the bananas. Cover with the rest of the bananas. Dollop the remaining cream and meringue mix on top. It should look a bit like a mountain. Sprinkle with the pomegranate seeds.
