Ok so I'm in college right now and I am supposed to be revising but I'm posting this as procrastination. Eaton mess is one of my favourite desserts but no matter how hard I try my meringues never come out looking quite as good as shop bought ones. Any way when you want a quick weeknight dessert who has the time to be messing around with eggs and sugar trying to make your own? The ones I used for this were from Marks and Spencer’s food selection and are pretty darn good.
If you have never made Eaton mess before you don’t know what you’re missing! There is something wonderful about putting a dessert together all nice and neat then crushing it into oblivion with a fork and serving that as dessert instead.
What you’ll need (to make two) is:
2 handfuls of strawberries;
Small carton of double cream; and
2 meringue nests.
What you do is:
Whip up your cream till thick and the peaks stand up on their own then pile all your ingredients together in a bowl.
Have at it with a fork (release the days frustrations). Finally, after all that hard work, Enjoy :)
In case you hadn't noticed I had mine sat out in the garden :)
