Easy Eton Mess
There are several tales about how this delicious pudding came about. But regardless of its origins, it’s served every June at the oldest ongoing school sporting fixture—the Eton versus Harrow cricket match. It’s also light, summery and easy to prepare.


Serves 4
  • 4 ready-made meringue nests
  • 300ml double cream
  • 2tbsps Greek yogurt
  • 250g raspberries and/or strawberries, washed and hulled


  1. Use your hands to break up the meringue nests.
  2. Whisk the double cream into soft peaks and then stir in the Greek yogurt.
  3. Fold in the raspberries/strawberries and the chunks of meringue until combined.
