Eton Mess

Eton Mess

A delicious summer dessert made with crumbled meringue, whipped cream, and strawberries.


  • 500 g strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 300 g chilled heavy cream (30% or 36%)
  • 300 g ready-made meringue (or homemade meringue, see below)


Wash the strawberries, dry them, and hull them. Blend 100 g of the strawberries into a puree with 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar. Cut the remaining strawberries into smaller pieces and mix with the puree.

Whip the well-chilled cream until stiff peaks form, adding 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar as you whip.

Break the meringues into pieces and gently fold them into the whipped cream.

Layer the meringue-cream mixture and the strawberries with puree in serving glasses or bowls. Decorate with additional meringue pieces on top. Serve immediately.
