Blackberry Mess

My apologies for the lack of posts lately, I have been suffering from migraines so have been avoiding monitors as much as possible. But without further ado, my recipe for blackberry mess.
Blackberrys - as many as you want
1 pint double or whipping cream
4tbsp icing sugar
8 meringues (bought or homemade)
4tbsp water

Upto an hour in advance of serving simmer up a small handful of blackberries with the 4tbsp of water until the juices flow and you get a lovely sauce - leave this to cool down.

Whip up the cream into peaks, then whip/stir in the icing sugar.
Crumble the meringues into chunks and stir in. Taste the mixture to see if its sweet enough, if it isnt add a bit more icing sugar & taste again.
Fold in your remaining blackberrys gently, if you stir too much then you wont be able to taste the cream.
When ready serve and pour the sauce over the top.

You can add other fruit as well, or try with totally different fruit.


  1. Sorry to hear about your migraines. I was wondering where you were, you've been missed! I look forward to hearing what you and your lovely boys have been up to. This looks as though it would taste scrummy! x
