Brian’s Eton Mess

This is a twist on two very traditional English puddings. First the old pudding called Eton Mess, which was invented at the very posh school, Eton, and is made by mixing together bashed-up meringue, fresh strawberries and cream. Second the traditional Cornish cream tea served down in the south-west of England, which is scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream. The scones act like a sponge, but you could use cookies or meringue.
