Rasp-Berrylicious Lingerie & Eton Mess Recipe!

This week the talented Katie Guy brings us a delicious Raspberry & Rosewater Eton Mess recipe. The thought of rich red tart raspberries in lashings of sweet cream and meringue got us thinking of this week’s style – Crush Orchid It comes in gorgeous clashing pinks with minty green accents of colour. The bra is a half cup shape which is great if you want a bit of uplift but have a great cleavage.

How about teaming it with the co-ordinating chemise for all over glamour?

The origins of Eton Mess

Eton mess was served in the 1930s in the school’s tuck shop and was originally made with either strawberries or bananas mixed with ice-cream or cream. Meringue was a later addition.

Raspberry & Rosewater Eton Mess Recipe

IngredientsEton Mess

284ml double cream
icing sugar
punnet raspberries
1-2 tsps rosewater (Leave out the rosewater of you dislike it,given its bathwater-y tendencies, it’s understandable. If you do use it, have a light hand. Less is definitely more)
4 meringue nests



Put half the raspberries in a wide shallow dish, and sieve a thin layer of icing sugar on top. Beat the cream until it forms soft peaks. With the back of a spoon, push the icing sugar’d raspberries through a sieve into the cream. Add the rosewater, whole raspberries, the meringues- crumbling with your hands into pieces as they go in- and gently fold in. The amount you combine it depends if you want a uniform pink, or a marbled effect. Taste if it needs extra icing sugar or rosewater. Spoon into individual dishes to serve.
