Eton Mess

A classic British dessert & Mr W's favourite! Use raspberries if you prefer.

Serves 4 Approx 86p per person

Prep time 15 minutes Cooking time none


300ml double cream

4 meringue nests

350g strawberries, hulled & chopped

1 sprig of mint (optional)

Put the meringue nests in a bowl & crush them with the end of a rolling pin.

Save a few pieces of strawberry for decoration & crush the rest roughly with a fork, you want some pulpy & some still chunky!

In another bowl whip the cream until it forms soft peaks.

Mix the crushed strawberries into the cream then gently fold in the meringue.

Divide between four serving bowls & garnish with the pieces of strawberry &-if you have any- a few mint leaves.

Serve immediately.
