So, you may or may not have heard of this. It’s a thing called Eton Mess. If you’ve heard of it, you’ve probably eaten it. And you’re probably scoffing, like, who hasn’t heard of eton mess? It’s the easiest, most lazy-person dessert ever. If you haven’t heard of it, you’re probably all, uhhh, it doesn’t sound very good? Listen close.
Crunchy, airy, super sweet meringues, that you can totally buy at the store, plus sweet and tart fruit and all its juicy-juiceness, plus super soft, barely sweet, cloud-like whipped cream, that yeah, you totally just whipped up, NBD. All of it. On a big ol’ spoon. In your big ol’ mouth. (Sorry. I didn’t mean to say you had a big mouth. But that’s just how it went for me. I’m projecting).
Point is, go ahead and make this. Your friends will thank you. And love you. And think you’re super fancy.
- 12 meringues
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (or more, if you like)
- 1 peach, chopped into bite-size bits + 1/4 cup raspberries
- 2 tbsp sugar
Combine raspberries and peaches with 1 tbsp sugar in a bowl, and half mash half mix them together. Set aside. Combine the heavy cream plus the remaining tbsp of sugar in the short cup with the flat blade attached. Blend until whipped cream appears!
In four bowls or jars (or one big ol trifle dish if you have one), crumble up 1/2 the meringues. Scoop on some whipped cream, and top with fruit mixture. Repeat layers one more time. Eat immediately, this dessert doesn’t keep!
