Eastern Mess

Eton Mess might not be the prettiest of puddings (the clue is in the name) but it’s the ultimate Summer pud’.

Fresh, sweet, zingy, creamy… when done right, it’s pudding perfection.

Eastern Mess (serves 2)

Ingredients: 250g strawberries, 1 big meringue, 1 can coconut cream, seed of 1 green cardamom pod (crushed), rose syrup, a few sprigs of fresh mint

1. Scoop the ‘solid’ part of the coconut cream can into a big bowl, then whisk until it forms soft peaks, then whisk in the crushed cardamom seeds.

2. Wash, dry and chop the strawberries.

3. Crush the meringue into bite-sized bits.

(steps 1, 2 and 3 can be made in advance, just keep everything in the fridge until you’re ready to serve!)

4. Pile up the different ingredients into a glass cup, finishing up with a drizzle of rose syrup and a fresh mint sprig on top and serve immediately.
