|Eton mess, tastes delicious, a weekend treat|
It is named after Eton College the famous Public school near Windsor. Eton mess is more or less a Pavlova in a mess . I wonder if the boys messed their Pavlova's around and so someone had this great idea.
Here is the recipe
Homemade or good quality shop- bought meringues,3 or 4 per person
4 punnets of raspberries or strawberries or a mixture of both
3 tablespoons of brandy - optional
200ml double cream - whipped
Icing sugar- sifted
Reserve a few raspberries or strawberries for decoration, roughly chop up the remainder, put into a bowl and sprinkle over the icing sugar and brandy if using.
Chill for 1-2 hours. Carefully fold together with the whipped cream. Crush the meringues and fold into the strawberry mixture. Pile into an attractive dish and decorate with the reserved raspberries or strawberries.
