How to make a quick Eton Mess
A step-by-step recipe to make a quick Eton Mess.
Eton Mess is a popular British dessert. It's very similar to a Pavlova, except that the meringue is broken up into pieces and the whole thing is served in a glass. The story goes that the mother of a student at Eton College brought a Pavlova but it broke on the way. Hence the name 'Eton Mess' and the similarity between the two desserts.
