This is a kind of alternative Eton mess with honeycomb rather than meringue. For this you will need a digital thermometer, which I recommend all cooks should buy anyway. You can get one for around £15. That’s unless you know your stuff when it comes to sugar and can tell by the water method – dropping a little of the boiling sugar into a glass of water and seeing if it solidifies.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
400g strawberries
100g sugar
1 tin soya whipped cream or thick soya cream
2 tablespoons freeze-dried raspberry powder

For the honeycomb:

Quantity Ingredient
4 tablespoons golden syrup
200g caster sugar
1 tablespoon bicarbonate of soda

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  2. Pick the leaves off the strawberries, leaving the stalks. Line a baking tray with a silicone baking mat or a sheet of baking parchment. Spread the strawberries out, sprinkle over the sugar and roast for 30 minutes. Let cool and reserve the syrup.
  3. Line a baking tin, around 20 cm square, with baking parchment or foil.
  4. Put the syrup and sugar in a medium saucepan over a high heat, and stir occasionally until it reaches 150°C (the hard crack stage). Then, working quickly, add the bicarbonate of soda and pour it all into the prepared baking tin. Leave to cool, then cut the honeycomb into 5 cm sections and remove from the tin.
  5. Assemble the pudding just before serving, on a plate or in a glass for each person. Add layers of strawberries and syrup, honeycomb and whipped or thick soya cream, in that order. Sprinkle the freeze-dried raspberry powder on top and serve.
