Eton Mess

July 7, 2011

A luscious jumble. A delicious mélange. Eton Mess is a scrumptious English dessert of cream, crushed meringues and fruit, typically macerated strawberries. Pillows of cream envelop the both crisp and gooey meringues and the fruit brings a pleasant tartness to cut the sweet concoction.  And as meringues are easily frozen and easily used from the ice box, I often have them on hand. Made up as Eton Mess, it’s the perfect spontaneous sweet for summer simply with some fruit and cream.

Eton Mess, serves two

  • Two large meringue shells, crushed into
  • 1/2 cup cream, beaten till whipped with
  • 1/2 cup fruit, crushed and macerated in
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
