Floating Island

floating island

Ingredients:
Eggwhite balls (2 egg white)
syrup
custard
Ingredients for custard:
1 egg
125 ml milk
50 g. sugar
225 g. cream

Procedure for custard:
Bring to boil milk and cream. Beat eggs until fluffy. Slowly add the milk mixture into the eggs,stirring constantly. Pour the mixture back to the pan and heat the mixture stirring constantly until thick but do not let it boil. Chill the mixture for 30 mins. This should be made ahead and when ready, proceed to make the eggwhite balls.
How to make eggwhite balls
Beat eggwhites until stiff. Add salt. Continue beating for 1 minute. Bring to boil plenty of water in a deep saucepan. With the stiffly beaten eggwhite, form balls using two spoons (deep spoon is better). Scoop a spoon of eggwhite forming it round and smoothen it with the other spoon. This would look like snowballs. Place it gently into the boiling water leaving it for few seconds and turn the ball over to other side. Keep it round as possible as you can. Do this with a laddle. Take it out of the water and let rest into a clean cloth.Pour the milk mixture into a glass and put the balls in it. Add syrup on top. Serve.

To make syrup, caramelize sugar and add lemon to flavor. Do this by heating sugar & lemon juice in a pan (without water), bring to boil until sugar turns slightly brown. Pour immediately to the white balls before it gets hard.I first tasted in Pizza Hut – Paris and hubby taught me how to do it. It’s just irresistible!!
