Vanilla ice cream! I just had some :)


One of my favourite deserts that doesn't contain chocolate is snow pudding with custard. You use the whites of eggs to make the snow pudding, and the yolks to make the custard. I have the recipe somewhere ... brb

Snow Pudding with Custard Sauce

Yield: 12 servings

- Base:
- 2 packages unflavored gelatin
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 1/2 cup lemon juice (approximately 2 lemons)
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups boiling water
- 5 egg whites
- Light Custard Sauce:
- 1 quart milk
- 5 egg yolks
- 1/2 cup sugar
- pinch of salt
- 2-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon vanilla

Unflavored gelatin in cold water.
Add lemon juice, sugar, boiling water.

Let gel until syrupy and just starting to set.

Beat egg whites until they form soft peaks, then beat in the gelatin until
the mixture is really fluffy and white. Rinse a 1-1/2- to 2-quart mold with
cold water and turn the pudding into it. Chill until firm, preferably
overnight, then unmold onto a serving platter and serve with Light Custard

Light Custard Sauce
In a double boiler or over low heat, heat milk. Beat egg yolks until
fluffy, then slowly add to milk, then sugar and a pinch of salt. Heat
mixture, stirring, then remove about 1/4 cup and dissolve cornstarch in it.
Stir cornstarch mixture into custard; continue to cook and stir until
slightly thickened (10 to 15 minutes). Let cool, then add vanilla.

note:You can use cream of tartar instead of lemon juice, but I can't recall off-hand now how much.
