This luscious and elegant Blueberry Lavender Eton Mess with a subtle floral flavour is a perfect dessert for bidding summer farewell!
Hello everyone and happy (almost) weekend! This time has finally arrived my friends. Your fellow blogger is posting the last summer recipe today. But you know me, I don’t like sharing apple and pumpkin recipes until actual autumn begins which is only (or just?) in 5 days. After all, I am not a slowpoke, right? I hope you can tolerate this last summer recipe in anticipation of my fall recipes (Even though it is hard to tolerate lavender for some folks, right David? Lol)
Jokes apart, I figured that a lavender dessert would be a perfect goodbye to summer 2020, especially because I haven’t posted any other lavender recipe this season. I believe I have rectified my mistake!
When I made this Raspberry Rose Eton Mess, I almost immediately thought of trying Blueberry Lavender Eton Mess. This dessert is luscious and elegant. If you are worried about lavender flavour, it’s very subtle and you can add as less as you want. In fact, you can simply leave it out, if you don’t fancy botanical flavours.
Another thing is that I used frozen blueberries. We are still going to cook berries, so why spend extra money for fresh fruit? Some frozen berries like blueberries can taste a bit bland, so we are going to use some honey to jazz it up. Lemon or lime zest would be a great option, too.
Lastly, I used a blasting method to make meringues which results in a crunchy and slightly browned top with a very soft, fluffy, chewy, marshmallow-like interior. Do you prefer dry and crispy meringues? No problem! Use a traditional method or just get some meringue nests in your grocery store.
I hope you like this Blueberry Lavender Eton Mess, and you will give it a try…well maybe not right away but the next summer!
Cheers and see you soon.
