When you fancy a creamy, textured, sweet and tart berry compote with crisp meringue pieces is like heaven in glass! When it’s this simple to make, you gotta make them more often.
We had been out to a local pub, where the kids and hubster shared an Eton mess sundae, and since then I thought to myself, this can’t be that difficult, and viola here is the ‘what I made earlier’!
We ended up having these for dessert for about 3 nights in a row, as it made enough for 12 large wine glasses, which is always good. Kids were loving the homemade version,they actually preferred them to the one at the pub.
