Eton mess

By James Martin

Classic Eton mess is a quick, crowd-pleasing dessert when made with shop-bought meringue. It's also a great way to use up broken homemade meringue. Classically Eton mess is made with whipped cream, meringue and strawberries, but you can add anything from a dash of port to a splash of ginger cordial for a twist, or try it with raspberries, bananas and pineapples.
