Autumn Mess

Autumn Mess

A tasty autumnal take on the traditional eton mess.

Serves 6-8

Meringues - why not make your own (perhaps using leftover egg whites) or use bought ones which are readily available.
Icing sugar or caster sugar for taste
½ ltr double cream
100g Mascapone cheese (optional)
½ vanilla pod split (optional)
400g approx of mixed berries, fresh or frozen
Wash your fruit gently, roughly cut or leave whole and pat dry. At this point please remember that if you’re using frozen fruits, make sure they are defrosted.
Ice cream – any flavour you fancy
Cooking Method: 

In a clean bowl whisk the mascarpone cheese along with the double cream. Split ½ a vanilla pod length ways and add (this is optional) with a little icing sugar to desired sweetness.

Once semi peaked, gently fold in half of the mixed berries and scrape half onto the meringue which has been placed onto a serving plate. Place balls of ice cream randomly with handfuls of roughly chopped berries onto the cream, top with the remainder of cream and again top with ice cream and berries.
