Spring starts with some quick desserts – Eton Mess

While all my friends in Hong Kong are travelling to Korea / Japan around this time of the year in search of pretty spring flowers like cherry blossom, I remain here (sadly) and bake myself some beautiful goodies to keep my vibes ↑↑.

So here we go, the cherry blossom (sakura | 벚꽃) meringue kisses!

每一年的這個時候,不少朋友都會外遊日本、韓國賞櫻、賞花,而我則留在香港搞搞新意思 – 焗製櫻花蛋白脆餅﹗

Okay, it might sound a bit too sweet for eating meringue kisses alone (although my kisses here are a bit different, which I added in some air-dried strawberry powders, they just taste heavenly good) so I browsed online and found the easiest way to take my meringue kisses to another level of greatness – Eton Mess!

很多人會認為蛋白脆餅太甜了﹗(雖然我家的有些不同,加入了風乾士多啤梨粉,酸甜度適宜)所以早前我到網上看看有沒有新發現,是您了 – Eton Mess﹗

On wikipedia, it says, “Eton mess is a traditional English dessert consisting of a mixture of strawberries, broken meringue, and whipped heavy cream.

Strawberries  √.

Meringue √.

Whipping cream √.

What are you waiting for?

(Don’t worry about the proportion of the ingredients, just add any amount that you feel like it. #becreative )


Crushing meringue kisses in a jar or any containers you can find.
Pour in strawberries puree (ready-made / processed fresh strawberries) into whipped cream.
Stir to combine.
Pour in the crushed meringue and stir well.
Fill the bottom of the jar with some chopped fresh strawberries.
Pour in the meringue cream to the rim of the jar.

Top with some more fresh strawberries, some whole meringue kisses and a pair of mint leaves!

Then… dig in and enjoy!
