I don’t really know why, but Eton Mess was something that I wanted to make for quite a while, but for some reason I didn’t. And it can be so easy to make, especially when you have ready made merengue, so the lack of time could not be my excuse. But now, I finally tried to make it! And I even baked my own merengues for it!
Eton Mess is basically a layered dessert with cream, merengue and fruit and you can make many variations on this dessert. Because we all love red fruits the most in my family and it gives the dessert a nice and fresh look, I decided to make a raspberry Eton Mess. To give it some extra color, I topped it with some vibrant green pistachios. And I can tell you it was a crowd pleaser!
Quite a strange title for this blogpost isn’t it? But that is exactly what this banana bread does: it makes banana haters eat banana. Somehow I never liked the taste of banana, as a child and as an adult still. It doesn’t matter if the banana is baked, in a smoothie, cake, or even artificial like in candy, if I taste banana, I don’t like it. Because I really want to eat bananas for their healthy benefits, I have tried to eat banana in all kinds of foods to see if there was a way I would like it, but no succes. Untill now! Lees verder
A pavlova is one of my favorite desserts for Christmas as they are light after a heavy main course. Pavlovas typically consist of a meringue base with a layer of cream and a topping of fresh fruit. This dessert was originally designed for the great ballerina Anna Pavlova. It is light, fresh and still sweet and a real crowd pleaser, just like the ballerina. A pavlova should be crisp on the outside and still a tiny bit moist and gooey on the inside. In this one, the chocolate chunks inside are a nice addition that give the meringue an extra bite. The raspberries create a fresh contrast with the chocolate base. Secretly, putting some fruit on top makes me feel like it is a little bit healthy. Even though it’s not.
Chia seeds are one of the current trending foods and they are very versatile in the way you can use them. Because of their ability to soak up fluids and them creating a kind of jelly around themselves you can easily make a out pudding of them. Just let them soak overnight and you will have a lovely pudding in the morning. You will have a tasty, healthy and filling breakfast. The possibilities are endless as you can bring any flavor you want to it.
