How was your bank holiday weekend? We had a lovely weekend away celebrating J's birthday. The day before we left I cooked a 3 course pre-birthday dinner but as it was a working day, I chose a quick and easy menu including this really simple dessert. I layered fresh strawberries, strawberry jam, cream swirled with strawberry jam and crushed meringue nests to create this British classic. We thoroughly enjoyed it and it was a really nice and refreshing dessert.
I'm sending this to AlphaBakes hosted by myself this month and co hosted by Caroline from Caroline Makes. The letter is E for Eton Mess.
I'm also sending this to Dead Easy Desserts hosted by Tina from The Spicy Pear and co hosted by Sarah from Maison Cupcake. This was ready in under 10 minutes and is ideal when you have unexpected guests especially when strawberries are in season.
I added some strawberry jam to the whipped cream instead of sugar and to get some extra strawberry flavour
