Recipe: »Eton Mess«

Makes 6 servings


  • 425g strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 Tbsp fine sugar
  • 200 ml whipping cream
  • 3 Tbsp icing sugar
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 readymade meringue nests or 30 readymade meringue kisses (approx.)


  1. Mix fine sugar and chopped strawberries in a bowl to begin the process of maceration. Set aside.
  2. Lightly break the meringues into bite-sized pieces and set aside. If using meringue kisses, keep a few whole ones for garnish.
  3. Take a chilled mixing bowl and on medium speed, whip the cream till it begins to thicken. Add icing sugar and extract. Beat only until nice, soft peaks form. Do not over-beat.
  4. To assemble, take serving glasses. Add a layer of meringue at the bottom, top with a layer of cream and then macerated strawberries. Repeat the layering till glass is full to desired level.
  5. Garnish with meringue kisses.


  • Soak sugar and strawberries together for no more than 30 minutes.
  • Eton mess is best assembled just before eating so that the meringue remains crisp after adding the cream and fruit.
