Eton Mess is a traditional English dessert, perfect for the whole family ... you can prepare it with the little ones, think about how happy it is for them to break the meringue. Not a joy for mothers to clean in the end though. :))

- 110 g sugar cough
- BRANDY SNAPS
- 55 g butter
- 55 g honey
- 50 g flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

RECIPE PREPARATION Eton Mess In Brandy Snap Baskets:
MERINGUE: Separate the egg whites from the yolks, then mix the egg whites until fluffy. Add the sugar little by little until they become glossy and firm lifts are formed when you lift the mixer. Wallpaper an oven tray with baking paper and pour the meringue composition in a circle as round as you can. Don't try too hard because you have to break the meringue at the end of this time, the image doesn't matter. :) Bake in the center of the gas oven 1, 275 ° F 140 ° C for 1 hour. When it is ready, turn off the heat and leave the meringue in the oven with the door closed until it has cooled completely. (I took the recipe from Delia Smith's cookbook and she says it's okay to let it dry in the oven overnight).
BRANDY SNAPS: Preheat the oven and line a tray with baking paper. Add the butter, sugar and honey to a pan and put on low heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar has melted. But be careful not to set it on fire because the sugar can crystallize.
When you no longer feel the sugar granules on the bottom of the bowl, turn off the heat and let it cool for about 2-3 minutes then add the grated ginger flour and lemon juice. Form 4-5 circles from the mixture obtained in the tray lined with baking paper. Bake in a hot oven at 180C / 350F / Gas 4 for 10-15 minutes or until it acquires a lacy texture and a golden color.
Unfortunately, I didn't get to take pictures when they were in the tray because you have to work fast before they harden. Leave to cool for 1-2 minutes then gently peel off the brandy snap circles with a wide knife or a spatula and place on an orange or a small ball to get the shape of a basket. The traditional way to make brandy snaps is to roll them on the tail of a wooden spoon greased with a little oil. When they have hardened, fill them with whipped cream. While the baskets are hardening, cut the strawberries into suitable cubes and mix with the 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Mix the whipped cream and crush the meringue, put all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon.
Put the strawberry mixture in the baskets and serve immediately. To keep the baskets unfilled (if you have any left), place them in an airtight container.
