This luxurious strawberries and cream recipe is easy to make, tastes of summer and is addictively delicious, you won't be able to stop once you start! It makes the perfect fuss free snack or dessert during the warmer months of the year.

Okay, so strawberries and cream hardly needs a recipe, as all you really need are fresh, sweet strawberries and a bit of single cream to drizzle over. But then, there is a difference between a simple strawberries and cream recipe and this luxurious strawberries and cream recipe, and the difference is mascarpone.

More specifically, the key ingredient that makes this strawberries and cream recipe luxurious is this easy whipped mascarpone cream. Mascarpone is a soft Italian cheese with a creamy texture and a tangy flavour. When made into a sweet whipped cream, it transforms into something irresistibly delicious.

Strawberries and cream are perhaps famously known for being the snack of choice at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, but why? According to historians, it was Thomas Wolsey, King Henry VIII's trusted advisor, who first served the snack at a banquet in 1509, and he would also frequently serve it to spectators alongside his own tennis courts. Strawberries and cream then made its first appearance at Wimbledon in 1877, and the tradition has endured since then to become ever more popular today.

However you choose to enjoy your strawberries and cream, there's no denying its popularity and sweet association with summer. So why not treat yourself!

Add some meringue and strawberry sauce to easily turn this into a gorgeous Eton mess.
