I stumbled across Dom's blog in my wanderings over cyber space this week. It's a fab blog packed with lots of different recipes. He has a little challenge going on over there; basically the idea is you take a dessert cookbook open it at a random page and cook that exact recipe. I don't have a recipe book completely designated to desserts, so I used the book I bought last which is this Jamie Oliver one. The recipe I opened it to was the Eton Mess one. I did have to make some adjustments to the recipe due to Stephanie's allergies and I wanted her to be able to join me in eating the dessert.
1 heaped table spoon golden caster sugar
1 blood orange
2 teaspoons vanilla paste or extract
a splash of Pimms
250g low fat yoghurt or creme fraiche
pack of 8 meringue nests
a couple of sprigs or fresh mint.
splash of apple juice
low fat yoghurt
As Stephanie is allergic to citrus fruits/citrus products I replaced the pims with apple juice and left out the orange. It tasted fab even without these.
So what you do is;
