With so many uses for cream chargers, we could come up with a list of hundreds of different recipes and suggestions for you to try. So many different kinds of desserts and puddings go incredibly with whipped cream but we couldn’t resist giving you a recipe for one of our absolute favourites.

Eton Mess is traditionally served at the famous college on the 4th June and is usually made with strawberries and cream mixed in with broken up meringues. One thing you’ll need to remember when it comes to making yours is that you need to make the meringue up the day before, (something I’m sure your family and friends won’t mind as long as you “conveniently” make too much!)

Ingredients

6oz (175g) golden caster sugar

3 large egg whites

1lb (450g) fresh strawberries

1 tablespoon unrefined icing sugar

1 pint (570ml) double cream

Optional whipped cream

Method

Have your caster sugar measured and ready to go, and begin by whisking your egg whites in a clean bowl until they form soft peaks that begin to fall over on themselves when you lift the whisk. Next add in the caster sugar one tablespoon at a time and continue to whisk the mixture until the sugar has been incorporated into the mix.

Take rounded dessertspoonfuls of the mixture and place them in rows on a lined baking tray. Place the tray in an oven pre-heated to gas mark 2, (350 Fahrenheit). Before putting the tray in, turn the oven down to gas mark 1 (275F), and leave the meringues in for one hour. Leave your meringues to dry out overnight.

The next day, chop half of the strawberries and blend them together with the icing sugar. Once the mix has turned to puree, pass it through a sieve to remove any seeds, and chop the remainder of the strawberries and whip up the double cream to a floppy consistency. When you are ready to serve, break up the meringues and place them in a large mixing bowl, and the chopped strawberries and fold the cream in and around them, adding more whipped cream if necessary using your cream charger.

Finally fold in two tablespoons of the puree to give a marbled effect and put the whole dessert into a serving dish. Spoon the remainder of the puree over the top and serve.
