With just 4 ingredients and a few minutes to whip up, this classic ENGLISH DESSERT 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 a 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!! Intrigued? Read on….
I have served this a few times already and everytime 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!!
Make sure you don’t miss making it this summer while fresh and seasonal strawberries abound. I promise you won’t be disappointed!! Enjoy!
