This hybrid dessert combines two British food traditions, Eton mess and jammy scones, into one delicious teatime treat. In terms of whether you assemble them jam or cream first, well, we'll leave that one up to you...
- Hull the strawberries and dice into small chunks.
- Whip the cream, using either a hand whisk or stand mixer, until stiff. Gently fold through two thirds of the strawberries and all of the meringue, mixing until well combined.
- To assemble, slice the scones in half and spread with a thick layer of strawberry jam. Divide the cream mixture between the scones and sprinkle over the remaining strawberries. Top with the scone 'lid' and serve immediately.
