This recipe uses the microwave meringues we made in an earlier video. The meringues are really easy to make and avoid all the usual problems people can encounter when making regular meringues. They also don’t take 90 minutes in the oven but rather 90 seconds in the microwave. I have only ever heated up and defrosted in our microwave so this recipe is a real revelation to me, but if you don’t want to make the meringues most supermarkets sell ready made meringues that you can use instead.
Eton Mess is a quick and easy dessert that you can prepare earlier in the day and finish off just before serving. It’s light and full of fruit and you can make your own fruit coulis or cheat and use a bought one or use jam to make a quick and easy alternative. Check out my fruit slice recipe for details on how to make the fruit coulis.
This is a perfect, easy to make dessert for a summers day. You don’t have to use raspberries and blueberries just make sure the fruit has some sharpness to it or the dessert will be too sweet.
