Mel and Mal's Irish Jig

  • 50g meringue nests, crushed lightly
  • 50g dessicated coconut
  • 30ml Irish whiskey
  • 200g Double cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 25g Vanilla Caster sugar
  • 15g Demerara sugar

Naughty but very, very nice, this traditional Irish dessert is especially good as the whiskey gives it some added kick!

This is great as a quick dessert any time of year as it can be prepared and on the table in 20 minutes!

Serves : 4        Prep/Cooking Time : 20 mins


Using an electric whisk, beat the cream until it forms soft peaks

Add the whiskey, vanilla extract and both types of sugar until the cream is fairly stiff

Add the Meringues

Add ½ of the Meringues and all the coconut and mix in using a wooden spoon

Now add the rest of the Meringues and serve immediately sprinkled with the lemon zest

Serve in a tall sundae dish with a long spoon so you can get every scrap out of the bottom!
