I acknowledge myself that a lot of the things I do are met with much enthusiasm yet little success. It never puts me off, I always have a go.
This can certainly be said from my latest Great British Bake-off inspired bake.
Messy it certainly was.
I used a Mary Berry recipe for the sponge from the Mary Berry Baking Bible book which uses 4oz of sugar, self raising flour and four eggs.
The bake was going ok up to here. I decided on the Eton Mess filling because you can’t get more classically British inspired than that, can you?
For the Eton Mess(y) bit, you will need:
300ml whipping cream
Punnet of raspberries (or strawberries)
1 table spoon of caster sugar
8-10 mini meringues.
I added four raspberries into the cream with the sugar to make it pink and whisked until the cream was thick.
I don’t know if it was too much filling or my rolling wasn’t up to scratch but it is more of a Swiss fold than a roll.
