A Take on Eton Mess

Howdy! I’m tres-excited today. I finished work and am now on annual leave for the next 12 days! No alarm for 12 days – beyond excited!! Planning to do a lot of cooking, baking, sleeping, sight-seeing, catching up with friends, sleeping…you get the picture! 🙂 And the highlight of my staycation will be ROBBIE WILLIAMS on Friday night!!

So as I was in a very good mood this evening after work, I decided a little treat was in order. An Eton Mess of sorts!

I used this recipe for the Meringues, but this time they were pink! Now Rachel Allen recommended piping the meringue mixture, then dipping a skewer into food colouring and swirling this in the meringues. I didn’t like this, I found it to be quite messy. I think next time I’ll swirl it into the meringue mixture before piping and see how that works out.

Chop some fresh berries and set aside.

Begin layering the dish. I started with a dollop of cream in the bottom of the glass. Then add a generous glug of Passion Fruit curd – recipe here. Add some broken up meringue. Top with some fresh fruit. Add another layer of meringue and then top with another layer of cream. Absolutely delicious!!
