Eton Mess with Meringue Kisses

Crisp meringues with a squidgy centre covered in deliciously smooth whipped cream and topped with juicy strawberries. This Eton Mess with Meringue Kisses is perfect for early summer when British strawberries are at their best.
Eton Mess is a fantastically British pudding that celebrates strawberries that are so delicious in early summer. Although you can buy strawberries year round, it is in early summer that the British strawberries are in the shops. These are the sweetest, most delicious strawberries which don’t need much doing to them. 

Eton Mess with Meringue Kisses is the perfect way to showcase your British strawberries. The simple but complimentary flavours of strawberries, meringue and softly whipped cream is a match made in heaven. 

You can make meringues in whatever shape you like for Eton Mess. You could even use shop bought meringues if you are looking for a time saving option. However I think making Meringue Kisses makes the Eton Mess extra special and gives it a more sophisticated look. 

I think the best way to serve Eton Mess with Meringue Kisses is to scatter your serving dishes with strawberries and some of the Meringue Kisses before spooning over the cream and adding more Meringue Kisses and strawberries. Obviously you can add it all to a big bowl and mix it around before serving it, but you will risk crushing your pretty Meringue Kisses!

Ingredients

  • 300 ml double cream
  • 300 g strawberries

Instructions

  1. Make the meringue kisses as per the recipe above
  2. Pour the double cream into the bowl of your mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whisk on a slow to medium speed for a couple of minutes. You are looking for it to become thicker but not loose its smooth texture. It is better to keep stopping the mixer and checking on it rather than over whipping the cream!
  3. Hull the strawberries and cut them into pieces
  4. Assemble the dish by adding the meringue kisses, whipped cream and strawberries to a serving bowl
