There’s lots to love about an Eton mess. The crunch of meringue, the tingle of cold cream, and that tumble of berries. Our classic Eton mess recipe combines strawberries and raspberries, while April Bloomfield adds a lick of vodka to her recipe – “It brings out an extra little something in the strawberries,” she says. We’ve also thrown in some variations on the mess recipe with kiwi, ginger, mango and passionfruit too.
