With just 4 ingredients and a few minutes to whip up, this classic English dessert – ETON MESS is the perfect summer dessert! Always a hit whenever I make this!
We had a holiday in England last June – perfect time for all that glorious English strawberries. Naturally, we’ve had many desserts that use these yummy berries. Our favorite of all is this English classic — Eton Mess. You know why?
It wasn’t only delicious but has just 3 ingredients — meringue, cream and strawberries! When you use store-bought meringue (which I do) all you need is 10 minutes to make this awesome summer dessert! Seriously!

I have served this a few times already and every time it is well-received and the recipe often asked. It’s funny because it’s so easy I feel like it doesn’t really even need a recipe.
However, for the benefit of our dear readers who, perhaps, are not familiar with this delicious dessert, I write this recipe – this is my gift for you! And I promise this would become your favorite summer dessert!!!
What do you need to make this yummy dessert? Not much at all!
- strawberries (fresh are best!)
- meringue (storebought are fine)

Making it is a breeze too as all you need is to simply whip them all up! How’s that for easy?
Make sure you don’t miss making it this summer while fresh and seasonal strawberries abound. Those juicy berries would be great with this. You won’t be disappointed! Enjoy!
