FFwD - Floating Islands

This week's French Fridays with Dorie recipe is Floating Islands.  Floating Islands is not as romantic as it sounds - normally it comprises quenelles of poached meringue floating in crème anglaise.  I really don't like that version of floating islands much

However, this week's version of floating islands is a little different in that the meringue is baked.  This small change lifted the flavour out of the stratosphere - I liked this so much better.

Instead of crème anglaise, I made custard with good old Foster Clark's custard powder.  Yum!
