Eton Mess Recipe 

This Eton Mess recipe makes an easy but impressive dinner party dessert, or spoil your family one evening!

To make Eton Mess, you first need to make meringues. This is actually pretty easy, and much easier than making a large pavlova.


To make the meringue, first separate the eggs and whip up the egg whites with an electric whisk. Do this until you can turn the bowl upside down without them falling out (this is always fun to test on top of one of the kids' heads!)

Then slowly add in the sugar and continue to whip until the meringue mixture forms soft peaks. I mix in a quarter of the sugar at a time, and mix until you have soft peaks each time.

Meanwhile you can whip your cream and cut up your strawberries and raspberries ready to mix together.

Some people like to make Eton Mess with ice cream mixed through as well as cream. You could also experiment with different fruit - a tropical Eton Mess with passionfruit and mango works really well too.
