Eton Mess Cheesecake

As I previously mentioned, it was the boy's birthday this week. My mama took it upon herself to whip up something special and we were all too surprised when this was awaiting us when we woke up in the morning!

Is it not just the most gorgeous thing you've ever seen?!

This, ladies and gents, is an Eton Mess Cheesecake. And yes, it does taste as good as it looks (if not better, if I do say so myself). It consists of a traditional vanilla cheesecake with a biscuit base, topped with a good helping of berries, meringue and whipped cream.  

Not only is it fabulously tasty, it's also incredibly easy to make and I can guarantee will be a show stopper at any party. This would also make a fabulous dessert for your Mother's Day meals tomorrow! 

To make your own, you will need;

For the base
  • 100g digestive biscuits
  • 50g unsalted butter (melted)
For the filling
  • 180ml double cream
  • 300g cream cheese
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 60g icing sugar
For the Eton Mess
  • Double cream
  • Broken meringue nests
  • Fresh berries of your choice
First make the base. Crush the biscuits in a food processor and combine with the melted butter. Press your lovely buttery biscuits into the base of an loose bottomed, 8 inch cake pan. Chill this in the fridge while you make your filling. 

Whip the double cream until stiff, then whip in the cream cheese, vanilla extract and icing sugar until all combined. Spread over your biscuit base and place back in the fridge until completely set. Nobody wants a broken cheesecake!

Finally, just before serving, whip up the rest of your double cream until relatively firm (but not over whipped), and pop your broken meringue nests and berries into it. Make sure they're all nice and covered. Push your cheesecake out of the cake tin. Cover the top with the Eton mess mixture and add a few more berries to decorate!

If it's a birthday, add candles...

How easy is that?! 

Be warned, the cheesecake must be eaten relatively quickly after serving, as otherwise the meringue will dissolve away and you won't get that delicious crunch. However, this recipe is so delicious I know that won't be a problem. It certainly wasn't for us...

If you try out this recipe yourself, don't forget to tweet me your pictures @hellomissjordan so I can eye up all your marvellous creations!

  4. This looks gorgeous, as per usual for your recipes. I was momentarily super confused about the Mother's Day reference because in the U.S. Mother's Day is not until May. I was afraid I had missed it for a second :) I will definitely bookmark this for when our Mother's Day rolls around. Keep up the lovely work!

    1. Thank you so much for such a lovely comment! It is quite confusing I always get puzzled when it's Mother's Day in the U.S. & I have a little panic attack that I haven't bought my mama anything! So happy you like the recipe be sure to send me a pic to show me how you get on!

      Love Jordan
