A rich custard is the base for this unique dessert. The custard is topped with a delicate meringue, followed by a caramel. The custard is smooth and meringue adds a bit of airy crunch while the caramel adds rich flavor. All these flavors and textures come together to form the perfect bite of dessert. This makes a great ending to a meal!

Ingredients

  • custard
  • 6 egg whites
  • 130 grams powdered sugar
  • salt

Directions

  1. Prepare the custard as shown here and keep cool.
  2. Beat the egg whites until stiff with a pinch salt gradually adding 30 grams of sugar until mixture whitens.
  3. Make balls using a tablespoon on a plate (proceed several times if necessary) and cook in the microwave oven for 30 seconds.
  4. Place the custard in individual cups topped with a white ball. Keep cool.
  5. At serving time, prepare caramel (if it is done too early, it will soften) with 100 grams of sugar and just a little bit of water. When golden, pour on the floating islands. To make original decorations, using a tablespoon, pour the caramel in geometric shapes. Once the forms are completely cooled, gently peel them off the paper and place them in the egg whites.

I was excited to try this recipe and the results were great. I never knew you could use the microwave for the egg whites, but it worked just fine. This is a very nice dessert.
