Eton Mess

Eton Mess Recipe

Brought to you by Beth Rodda

Cooking Time: 1 hour 15mins approx.

The story goes that a strawberry, meringue and cream pudding was dropped at an Eton v Harrow cricket match in the late 19th century. Rather than waste the food, it was simply scooped up off the floor and served, smashed to bits. No matter the history, this English dessert is truly heaven in a bowl!

Ingredients for Eton Mess

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 120g caster sugar
  • 500g strawberries, hulled and roughly chopped
  • 450ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar

Instructions for Eton Mess

Step 1

Heat oven to 120C/100C fan/gas 1 and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.

Whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl using an electric whisk or tabletop mixer until they reach stiff peaks, then add the sugar in 3 lots, re-whisking to stiff peaks every time.

Spoon dollops of the mixture onto the baking parchment, cook on the bottom shelf of the oven for 1hr – 1hr15 mins until the meringues are completely hard and come off the paper easily.

Leave to cool.

Step 2

Blitz 1/3 of the strawberries to make a strawberry sauce.

In a large bowl whisk the cream with the icing sugar until it just holds its shape.

Roughly crush ¾ of the meringues and tip them in with the chopped strawberries and stir, then swirl through the strawberry sauce.

Dollop into bowls then crush the remaining meringues, sprinkling the pieces over the top.

Enjoy!
