Summer berry Eton Mess with passion fruit cream

My daughter is an Eton Mess fan and they are, I quite admit, perfect as they are.

But, if you do want to mix it up a little, using summer berries bursting with juice and layering the ‘mess’ with a smooth passion fruit cream is a jolly good way to do it!

Berry Eton Mess is berry berry nice!

2 large top quality shop bought Meringues (or make your own)

A handful each of blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries

For the passion fruit cream you will need:
3 large for 4 small passion fruits

Ingredients for my berry eton mess recipe

Chop your fruit (juicy mess is the name of the game) and place in a bowl.

Raspberries are usually soft so don’t worry about those.

Break up your meringue and place in the bowl with the berries.

Merigue.

Whisk your 250g of double cream. You want it to form peaks – if you go too far it will resemble cottage cheese!

The flavour of passion fruit is one of my favourites of all time (you may have guessed by this websites title!). Give this a go, it’s easy to make. Let me know how you get on.

If you are a lover of all things berries, try my best berry crumble. Since I came up with this recipe I have to make it all the time for my hubby.
