Eton Mess

One of the easiest, yet tastiest desserts EVER, Eton Mess is loved by my whole family!  Yes friends....it IS as yummy as it looks:

This particular recipe is taken from the Longo's Experience magazine, which is a bit of a variation on the one I normally make in that there is balsamic vinegar in the drizzle.

Prep:  15 mins

1 cup (250 ml) 35% whipping cream
1/4 cup (60 ml) sour cream
1 tbsp (15 ml) granulated sugar
18 mini vanilla meringues
2 cups (500 ml) mixed fresh berries (I use blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries

Raspberry Balsamic Drizzle:

1 cup (250 ml) fresh raspberries
1/4 cup (60 ml) honey
2 tbsp (30 ml) balsamic vinegar

Press raspberries firmly through a fine mesh sieve to make raspeberry puree.  Combine with honey and vinegar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for about 2 minutes or until slightly reduced and syrupy.  Let cool.

In a large bowl, whip cream; fold in sour cream and sugar.  Coarsely crumble meringues; add to cream mixture.

In the bottom of each of 6 dessert bowls, drizzle 1 tsp (5 ml) of the raspberry balsamic drizzle.  Divide meringue mixture among bowls; top with berries and about 2 tsp (10 ml) of the raspberry balsamic drizzle.

Enjoy! Pin It
