Eton Mess

I am slightly ashamed to say that my new guilty pleasure - that I am totally addicted to - is BBC 2’s ‘The Great British Bake Off’. Capturing the name very aptly, the show is completely and utterly British, from the kind natured contestants to the whole ‘its the taking part that counts’ spirit. But it’s not only the totally loveable Mary Berry or the continuous stream of sexual innuendos, it’s the gorgeous cakes and deserts that tantalise my tastebuds and make me absolutely crave some sort of delicious desert.

So in the very first commercial break of tonights episode I decided to whip up one of my absolute favourite deserts - Eton Mess. Fitting in with the themes of the show, Eton mess is a quintessentially British desert, which is traditionally served at Eton College’s annual cricket game against Winchester College.

This is one of the most simple deserts to make and only requires about 4 ingredients and takes about 5 minutes to put together.

Strawberries, raspberries, double cream, meringues and I was ready to go...

Put all the meringue nests into a bowl and crush them up (don’t worry about getting messy - just go for it!)

Next. Cut all the heads off the strawberries and cut them into quarters.

Add the cream and the berries to the meringues.

Then put the lime in the coconut and mix it all up (minus the lime and the coconut of course).

Et voila!!

Jolly good show!

What a spiffing desert.
