Shop My Favourites:

    when i've had a fairly crazy week at work and want to cheer myself, i always knock up a bowl of my favourite naughty treat - eton mess.

    Meringues are really easy to make but for some reason people are scared of them! You simply need to beat 4 large egg whites in a bowl untill they are nice and fluffy and the mixture stands up in stiff peaks - trust me when i say you're better off using an electric whisk or you will be there for  a long time! next gradually add  115g caster sugar, a dessertspoonful  at a time before folding a third of 155g icing sugar. Scoop heaped dessert spoonfuls onto a baking tray and pop in the oven for an hour and a half.... 

    serve with a big dollop of ice cream and a fistful of raspberries and strawbs...
