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!
