A glorious mess of strawberries, cream and meringue. The twist here is that the strawberries are steeped in amaretto liqueur. Quantities of each ingredient are a movable feast but I make suggestions below (no two recipes for Eton mess are alike).


Ingredients (for one large individual serving or two smaller servings)
8 strawberries, halved or sliced
2 tbsp amaretto
150g of crème fraîche
A handful of roughly crumbled meringue
A few fresh strawberry slices to garnish
Strawberry dust to sprinkle (optional)

  1. Place the halved strawberries in a bowl and add the amaretto. Leave to steep for up to 12 hours. Half an hour will suffice,
  2. Drain the steeped strawberries (reserve the liquid) and mix with the crème fraîche and meringue.
  3. Pile into a serving bowl and top with a few fresh strawberry slices. Poor the steeping liquid over the top and sprinkle with strawberry dust.
