Eton Mess

This must be one of the easiest desserts you can make…. not the mention one of the yummiest. No fuss….allot of mess and smiling faces all around the dinner table. In this one little dessert you have the crunch of the meringue, the smooth cream, you have sweet and sharp and this, my Lovely Friends, is a mess well worth eating.

Serves: 6



100g Meringue, broken into pieces (I did use store bought meringue nests for this)

150g Blueberries

150g Raspberries

550ml Double Cream, whisk until soft peaks form

Pinch of Cinnamon

6 small Dollops of Clotted Cream

6 tablespoons of Strawberry Syrup (I used homemade)


  1. Place a few berries in the bottom of your serving glasses.
  2. In a bowl, mix the broken meringue, the blueberries, raspberries, double cream and cinnamon until well combined.
  3. Spoon the mix into your serving glasses.
  4. Top with a few berries, add a dollop of clotted cream to each glass and spoon a tablespoon of strawberry syrup over everything.
  5. Keep chilled until you are ready to serve it.

About The PaperCup Kitchen

Hi there everyone. I am Nelmarie, but please call me Nel. I, like so many people out there enjoy cooking and baking. Food makes me smile and it makes my heart beat faster. The only place where I know I fit just perfectly, is in the kitchen. I have also enrolled in a few cake decorating courses this year and I think I have met my true love....not mentioning my Hubby now :D. It took me 36 years to find out what I want to do with my life and I can now say the answer is rather simple...Bake and then decorating what I've baked. I have started PaperCup in 2011 whilst we were living in Moscow, Russia. Living the life of an Expat can sometimes get very lonely and the blog has not only brought the whole world into my kitchen but I have met so many gorgeous Foodie Friends. I am so happy that I have taken the plunge and started PaperCup. I am not a brilliant writer, I am not a brilliant chef, I am not a brilliant baker BUT I do invite you into my kitchen, take your shoes of, relax, have a bite to eat and let's have a chat. A little more about me: Nelmarie Rennison, married to Christopher for 6 years, together for 12. Two lovely kiddies, Nicholas 3 1/2 and Allegra just over a year. South African, lived in Russia for two years and now loving living in the UK. Diagnosed with MS in 2000 and never felt better :D I am just as grateful for dust blowing in my eyes as I am for Angels sitting on my shoulders. I love my family, my friends, my life and I am grateful for each new morning. Looking forward to get to know you better xx
