Cherry Eton Mess

Eton Mess is an English dessert, fresh and very easy to make, which combines meringue, cream and strawberries. I used cherries instead of strawberries and you can even use other berries, if you like. You can buy the merengues, for a super quick dessert, or make your own.

Prep time:

Cook time:


  • Cherries: 250g
  • Heavy cream: 200ml
  • Sugar: 1 tablespoon
  • Meringues: 100g, roughly crushed



  1. Remove the pits from the cherries. With a fork, or with a hand blender, mash them coarsely.
  2. Beat the cream with the sugar until stiff peaks form.
  3. Roughly fold the mashed cherries into the whipped cream, without stirring too much.
  4. In the serving bowls, alternate layers of whipped cream and crushed meringues. Serve immediately.
