Boozy Eton Mess

Terrible photo but I was busy eating and wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out, God knows why though, it’s got cream and booze in it.

I randomly bought little meringues the other day – I know, I know, I should have made them but I’m not bloody perfect, leave me alone – so decided to throw together an Eton mess for pudding.

Next time I may soak the fruit in booze for a bit too.

You need:

  • Three meringue nests
  • A punnet of raspberries
  • Half a punnet of strawberries
  • 200ml double cream
  • Hazelnut liqueur, Frangelico or Fratello
  • Chopped hazelnuts

Crumble up your meringues into a bowl and throw in your raspberries, quarter your strawberries and add them too.

In another bowl pour in your cream and a really good slug of liqueur. Whip up until it forms soft peaks.

Mix this in to your meringue and fruit until everything is coated and the raspberries streak through the cream.

Sprinkle over one or two teaspoons of chopped hazelnuts (you can buy these but I wazzed – technical term – some blanched whole ones in the food processor).

Pat yourself on the back, you’ve just won at desserts.

    Gah that looks amazing. I’ve been meaning to try making an Eton mess but it’s been neglected more times than a dessert containing that much cream ought to be. Now that booze is involved, there’s no excuse to not make it this weekend – but I will also use store bought meringue because my powers of precision leave much to be desired. Thanks for sharing!
