Eton Mess with Raspberries and Pomegranate ( Postre de Frambesas y semillas de granada)

This is the typical dessert Eton mess (a delicious English dessert) with the variant that leads not only berries (raspberries) but pomegranate seeds.

Many are already in summer but here we started the winter in the southern hemisphere so we  have pomegranate .
Anyway you can make this dessert with  only raspberries or strawberries.
I love pomegranate seeds in desserts.

Adapted from :  Gratinée 


300 grams raspberries (frozen or fresh)
100 grams (1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
300 grams  little meringues
100 grams + 2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
350 grams  ( 1 1/2 cups ) whipping cream
1 tablespoon raspberry liquer (optative)


Bring raspberries, sugar, lemon raspberry liquer and water to a boil over medium high  cook until syrupy (about 20 minutes).
Transfer to a heatproof bowl and let cool slightly before transferring to the freezer.
Keep in freezer  for about half an hour.

In a chilled bowl, whip cream until soft  peaks form, add 2 tablespoons sugar and mix to incorporate.
Spoon a bit of cream into the bottom of 4 glasses.
Break meringues into pieces and place some of the pieces on top of the whipping cream, followed by a layer of the raspberries. Sprinkle with some of the pomegranate seeds. Repeat layer
and serve. 
You can refrigerate before serve.

Blackberry muffins from BBC Good food (Bakes & Cakes)

Long  time I wanted to make a post about a recipe of these cook books.
A friend of times ago , James organized a fun event to exchange books, and I am grateful that he  included me.
Then Sam Gould  of England  sent me these two books of English cuisine and I send a book of Chilean food here.
Here is really difficult find english  cook books .

Sam          I want you know I really enjoyed these books just had not taken  photos to recipes. 
Finally I took pictures in this recipe for  these blackberry muffins .
Delicious and  I love blackberries.
Thank you Sam, thank you very much James.

85 grams butter melted plus extra for greasing
400 grams (14 oz) plain flour

1 orange finely grated zest
1/2 tsp salt
284 ml  buttermilk or greek yogurt
2 eggs beaten
250 grams blackberries


Heat oven to 180 °C (370 °F)

Butter a 12 hole muffin tin. In a large bowl,combine the flour,sugar, baking powder, zest and salt.

In a separate bowl mix together the greek yogurt or buttermilk, eggs and melted butter.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the greek yogurt mixture.
Stir until the ingredients are just combined and the mixture is quite stiff, but be careful not to overmix.
 Lightly fold in the blackberries, then spoon the mixture into the tins to to fill the holes generously.

Bake for  20 minutes until risen and pale golden on top.
Leave to cool in the tin for a few minutes, as the muffins are quite delicate when hot. Run a palette knife around the edge of the muffins and carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool.
