I don't have many memories of this dessert. As a child, I don't remember ever being our mother, later not being a good friend with meringue, it seemed like a weird dessert. :)) I tried, driven by curiosity, to do it a couple of times. It didn't work out for me! 😀 Although it is an extremely simple dessert, for me it was a touchstone. Now that I have succeeded, I can say thank you! :))
- 600-700 ml of milk
- 3 eggs
- 100 g sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon starch
Preparation Poultry milk:
In a larger saucepan, boil the milk.
Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt. Add half the amount of sugar and mix until you get a thick and shiny foam.
Turn the heat to low and take a spoonful of egg white foam. Boil in boiling milk. Let it boil for a few minutes, maximum 1 minute on one side, then turn on the other side. With a foamer, remove to a plate.
The remaining milk is strained from the egg whites, then poured over the yolks well rubbed with the remaining sugar and starch. Put on low heat and stirring constantly, boil until the sauce binds and reaches the desired consistency. Flavor with vanilla.
The "snowballs" are put in bowls and covered with vanilla sauce.
The dessert is refrigerated and served when it is very cold.
