This layered eton mess recipe by the.feminist.foodie is the only sweet treat you’ll want to be tucking into throughout your Jubilee celebrations! A delicious and light recipe that’s packed with our British Happy Eggs, strawberries and cream.


2 happy egg whites

200g caster sugar

250ml double cream

1tsp vanilla essence

400g British strawberries

Red & blue food colouring (optional)




  1. Preheat your oven to 100°c
  2. Whisk your happy egg whites on high until your mixture forms stiff peaks.
  3. Leave your mixer on and gradually feed in your sugar 1 tablespoon at a time.
  4. Whisk until glossy.
  5. If you’re using food colouring, paint stripes into your piping bag and add in the meringue mixture.
  6. Pipe small peaks on to a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Bake in the oven for an hour.
  7. While they’re cooking, chop up your strawberries and blend half to make a puree and leave half in chunks.
  8. Once your meringues are out and cooling, whisk up your double cream and add a dash of vanilla if you fancy it.
  9. It’s time to layer! Start with your strawberries and top with puree, cream and then meringue. Continue with this until your glass is full.
  10. Finish your Eton mess off with a mini meringue, whole strawberry and blue, red & white sprinkles.
