Origin myths of this dessert include a Labrador who sat on a meringue dessert at an Eton picnic, and a bumpy ride to an Eton cricket match, which turned a properly layered meringue-and-strawberry cake into a mess.
- 1 cup (250 g) mixed berries (fresh or defrosted)
- 9 store-bought meringue nests
- 4 oz (125 g) plain or vanilla yogurt
- 2 tbsp sugar (skip if using vanilla yogurt)
- 4 oz (125 go) heavy cream
1. In a bowl, crush the meringue nests and stir in the berries (save a handful for garnish).
3. Add the whipped yogurt-and-cream to the bowl and stir carefully, so everything becomes evenly distributed.
4. Divide the mixture between plates and top with the reserved berries.
