The Eton mess, is one of England’s loved and desserts, is an absolute joy to eat. Its sublime proportions of crumbled crisp meringue, softly whipped cream and fresh fruit – deliciousness.
So here is the recipe for a beautiful dessert.
Eton Mess - my favorite English recipe
- 150 g raspberries plus extra to serve
- 100 g peach jam
- 100 g blueberries
- 200 ml thickened cream lightly whisked
- 55 gm icing sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla bean paste
- about 3 egg whites
- 150 gm caster sugar
- 15 gm cornflour
- 1 tbp vinegar
- pinch of salt
For meringues, preheat oven to 120Whisk eggwhite and a pinch of salt in an electric mixer until firm peaks form (3-4 minutes). Gradually add the caster sugar and whisk until thick and glossy. Sieve icing sugar and cornflour over, fold to combine, then using a piping bag, make small meringues onto oven trays lined with baking paper. Bake until meringues lift easily from trays and are crisp but not colored 30-45min then turn off the oven and cool completely in the oven.
Whisk cream and icing sugar and vanilla seeds together in a separate large bowl until soft peaks form.
Spread serving dish with some jam with a quarter of the cream mixture, and coarsely crumble a quarter of the meringue over the top. Repeat layering with remaining ingredients (fruits).
Serve Eton mess with raspberries and extra strawberries and blueberries and enjoy.
