Maple Eton Mess

Desserts / Summer

6 portions



  • Stand mixer
  • Piping bag

For the meringue

  • 3 egg whites
  • 180g maple sugar

For the maple whipped cream

  • 250ml double cream
  • 20g maple sugar
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup (preferably golden colour for its delicate flavour)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

To garnish

  • 18 strawberries
  • 3 mint sprigs


For the meringue

  1. Preheat oven to 100°c.
  2. Pour the egg whites into a mixer with the whisk attachment.
  3. Whisk the egg whites to soft peaks, then gradually whisk in half of maple sugar until stiff and glossy (the meringue at this stage should double in size).
  4. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the other half of maple sugar, then continue whisking for 2 minutes.
  5. With a piping bag, pipe the meringues onto a baking tray covered with a baking parchment sheet.
  6. Bake the meringue for 3 hours.

For the maple whipped cream

  1. Add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  2. With the whisk attachment, whip the cream until it forms smooth, thick peaks (the mixture should be easily spreadable but holds its shape).

To assemble

  1. In glasses, pipe the maple whipped cream until 1/5 full.
  2. Add a few cut strawberries and crushed meringues.
  3. Repeat the layers until the glass is full.
  4. Decorate with meringues, strawberries and fresh mint.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
