Now, given the situation in the house (very messy at the moment and has been for 2 weeks) is only right for me to conjure a version of the nicest summer dessert: the Eton mess.
The main differences here are the raspberries in place of the strawberries (well, I only had raspberries in the garden!) and creme fraiche instead of whipped cream, I find it lighter in taste and hopefully on the waist as well, also I added a banana, just to bulk it up and add a different texture.
Ideally you should use a nice glass instead of a mug!
Quantities depend on your taste, you know better what you like most, but once assembled must be eaten straight away or the meringues will melt.
For 2 mugs I used a bowl of raspberries, one banana, 2 meringues and about half a tub of creme fraiche.
Before you start, wash the fruit, put in a bowl with a teaspoon of sugar and squash it a bit (don’t puree it please, we like the bigger pieces), leave it to marinade for 15 minutes.
Have your glasses ready and put alternate layers of meringue, creme fraiche, sliced banana, and raspberries until you fill up the glass and finish with some crumbed meringue.
Eat straight away!
