Chocolate & Berry Meringue Cake

I promised that I wouldn’t share another dessert option on the blog for a while, but I really couldn’t keep this one in a folder on my computer. I hope you can tell why? It’s a really great time for berries at the moment, beautiful fresh strawberries, raspberries and cherries. Combine that with chocolate meringue, heaps of vanilla cream and a strawberry & balsamic glaze and well, you’ve got a slice of heaven. This crumbly and chewy meringue melts in your mouth; but adds enough crunch to give the dessert a nice texture.

I really hope you like it, one to share!

Berry Meringue Eton Mess

I’m going to be honest, so I set out to make simple berry meringues and well they didn’t look aesthetically pleasing. Tasted super great, no way I could have shot them. So as the saying goes, if you have lemons…make lemon cream. So there you have it, ‘Berry Meringue Eton Mess’ was created. Fresh seasonal berries, indulgent lemon cream and chewy berry meringue. If I had a bath, I’d fill it with this dessert and eat the lot.

Nothing says summer to me like Eton Mess, I always choose it from the menu, just as I would choose Apple Crumble in Autumn. The only thing you have to cook is the meringue, which are pretty simple, containing 6 ingredients and a simple process.
