Super quick & easy Eton Mess | Photo recipe

I know that Eton Mess is kind of a 'no brainer' pudding but I thought I would add this little photo recipe to my blog, mostly because it tasted yummy and also because I made a strawberry coulis (I know, how very cultured!). I thought coulis would be something super tricky but evidently not - two steps and done! 

Here we go then, a fast, very simple and well received dessert (my friends are easily pleased)...

^^Simple ingredients^^

^^Start with the coulis. Chop some strawberries (about half of the quantity you are using)^^

^^Place them into a blender with one heaped tablespoon of icing sugar. Blend for 1-2 minutes^^

^^Once blended pour into a sieve, over a bowl, and drain juice. Use the back of a spoon to push through. Place the coulis into the fridge to cool^^

^^Take your double cream and whisk until the cream stiffens into a light consistency^^

then, chop the remainder of the strawberries...

^^Gently fold in the strawberries and the meringues (crushed). You can also pour a small amount of coulis in at this point and very softly fold into the mixture to create a marbled effect^^

^^Layer into a glass with strawberries in the bottom, some more meringue and a large spoonful of the mixture. Finish with the coulis and a strawberry on top^^

I hope you enjoyed this post - I enjoyed making this delicious dessert and enjoyed eating it a whole lot more! I would recommend mixing the final part (whipped cream, strawberries and meringue) at the last minute before you serve it up as the meringue may go a little soft and it is nice to have the different textures in there.
