 Ingredients List

  • 5 Egg whites
  • 2 tb Powdered sugar
  • 1/2 ts Orange extract
  • 1/2 ts Vanilla extract
  • 2 c Whole milk
  • 3 tb Granulated sugar
  • 3 Egg yolks
  • Wine -- optional


Beat the egg whites until you can turn the bowl upside down without the
whites falling out. Gradually add the powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon orange
extract and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or other flavoring. (Thomas
Jefferson used orange flower or rose water.) Put milk into a 10-inch heavy
skillet and add the granulated sugar and remaining orange and vanilla
extracts. Slowly bring to a simmer. Drop tablespoonfuls of egg white into
hot milk and poach until set. Turn the mounds after about 1-2 minutes of
cooking. You will need to make these in batches as it won't all fit in
skillet at once. The egg whites will puff a bit while cooking. It should
take about 4-5 minutes for each batch to cook. Lay them on a wire rack to
drain. Beat the egg yolks until thick. Add a small amount of the hot milk
to the yolks, then stir gradually into the milk. Continue to stir while
cooking, until the custard thickens. Pour custard through a sieve. Put the
cooked whites in a serving dish and pour the custard over them. Serve
