For 6 Serving(s)


  • 500 ml whipping or double cream
  • 2 tbs. icing sugar
  • 1 tbs. Cointreau
  • 250 g punnet ripe strawberries
  • 2 or 3 meringues

Eton Mess Directions

  1. 1. Using an electric whisk, beat the cream until it forms soft peaks - do not over beat! Add the icing sugar and Cointreau and beat for another few seconds.
  2.  2. Hull the strawberries, roughly chop then mash the pieces with a fork, reserving a couple for decoration.
  3. 3. Tip the strawberries into the cream, crumble in the meringue and fold through with a spatula.  Chill before serving. Decorate with a sliced strawberry, a flurry of crumbled meringue and perhaps a small sprig of mint leaves.
