The easiest ice-cream dessert you will ever make!
January 20, 2013 in desserts
Over the weekend, I made 150 hamburgers, 120 hot dogs, 120 pancakes and 150 bacon and egg rolls…….. normally something I can do quite easily……Doing it in the middle of the night after you’ve had a full day in the kitchen is a completely different story!
BUT, if you ask me whether I would do it all over again tomorrow, my pots and pans will be in the car already. I had such fun with the kids and to see their dedication, the friendships and untapped energy right through the night, was so inspiring! I have such faith and hope for our youth! To give you an idea……each one of these kids, did a trip to Robben Island! That is an achievement!
After a weekend like that, I need a short cut dessert recipe. Something that saves time, energy, but must still be fresh and delicious. Ice cream always hits the spot, so I made this basic Eton Mess Ice Cream Cake….
Eton Mess is a delicious dessert of fresh strawberries, meringue and cream which is traditionally served at Eton College’s annual cricket game against the students of Harrow School. The word “mess” might be confusing, because our perception of the word is that it is ugly and inedible…..well that is so untrue of this dessert! You WILL want to make this…….
