Who doesn’t like a little meringue every once in a while? And who, who in the world, doesn’t like the sweet goodness of custard? (If you’re either one of those people, I’m sorry, this one isn’t for you.) Well, I combined the two for today’s recipe! Oh and yes, it is going to be very, very yummy in your tummy.
What you’ll need:
-750 milliliters of milk
-160 grams of vanilla sugar
-2 eggs split
-2 tablespoons of jelly/jam
-An oven dish
-A bigger oven dish (the other one should fit inside this one!)
Let’s get baking!
Preheat your oven to 150℃ (around 300ºF).
Put the milk and 80 grams of the vanilla sugar together in your pan and slowly bring it to a boil, so all the flavours can blend.
Whisk the six eggs and two egg yolks together with a fork and slowly add the vanilla-milk mixture (whilst mixing!).
Pour the mixture in your oven dish, but don’t fill it up above 2/3 of it!
Fill the bigger oven dish with water till it’s half full and put the smaller oven dish in it (do this very carefully! You don’t want any water to get in your custard!).
Bake your custard in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes.
Get your custard out of the oven and heat up the oven to 200℃ (around 390ºF).
Whisk the egg whites till they’re stiff and add the remaining sugar to it (do this about five minutes before serving!).
Scoop your egg whites over the custard. Decoratively pour your jam or jelly over the egg whites and put everything in the oven for another 5 to 10 minutes, so the meringue gets golden brown.
Isn’t it beautiful? This is definitely one of the most pretty things I’ve ever baked!
Time to eat this delicious dish! It will work perfectly as a dessert after a nice meal, but you could also serve it with a nice cup of tea around 4, ofcourse! ;)
