  • Easy

A classic English dessert that makes the most out of succulent, sweet British strawberries that are in season. Strawberries, meringues and cream make a heavenly combination. Use ready made meringues to make this dessert really simple.



  • strawberries 350g, hulled and quartered
  • meringue nests 4, broken into pieces
  • double cream 284ml pot, lightly whipped


  • Step 1

    Crush half of the strawberries to a rough pulp with the back of a fork or in a food processor. Tip the meringue into a large bowl and stir in the cream.

  • Step 2

    Add the strawberry pulp and strawberry quarters and gently fold everything together so you have ripples of pink through the white.
