Eton Mess

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

Eton Mess is something that I had been wanting to make for a long time, even though it's the middle of winter, and this is usually a summer pudding.
It is a traditional English dessert which uses strawberries, cream and pieces of meringue. It is perfect for using up leftover homemade or shop bought meringues.
I promise you that, inshallah, this dessert will bring a little brightness to these dull winter days, and bring hope of the summer to come!

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Strawberries
2. Double Cream
3. Fresh Orange Zest
4. Icing Sugar
5. Fresh Orange Juice
6. My Mini Meringue Cookies or shop bought meringues

Bismillah, let's start!

To start, slice 1 pound of fresh strawberries.

Add the juice of 1 orange, and stir in.

Next, add 2 teaspoons of icing sugar.

Stir to combine, and set aside.

For the cream, place 1 pint of double cream into a bowl.

Add the zest of 1 orange.

Stir to combine.

Next, add 3 tablespoons of icing sugar.

Whip the cream until soft peaks form.

To assemble one portion of Eton Mess, take 3 of My Mini Meringue Cookies or 3 shop bought mini meringues.

Break the meringues into pieces. 

Add 3 tablespoons of the whipped cream, and mix.

Next, add 2 tablespoons of the strawberries.

Stir to combine.

Spoon the mixture into a serving glass bowl.

Top with more strawberries.

Garnish with crushed meringues, and serve straight away!
