Ingredients

8 portions
  • 1 liter whole milk
  • 1 sheath liquid vanilla, cut along
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cups Rum
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cups almond, in slices

Preparation

In a large saucepan put the milk and the vanilla pod to boil.
Prepare the meringue: beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
Gradually add 1/2 cup of sugar and continue beating with the electric mixer until it becomes a little harder but not dry.
Take a few spoonfuls of the meringue, and put on top of the boiling milk (3 minutes on each side).
Take out with a deep spoon and place in the pyrex where it will be served.
Repeat this step until all the egg whites have been used.
Prepare the English cream: in another bowl, whisk the egg yolks with 1/2 cup of sugar until they are fluffed.
Add hot milk to the yolks and put on the stove.
Cook over low heat, stirring constantly (without letting it boil) until it thickens.
Remove the vanilla pod and add the vanilla extract and rum (optional).
Put the English cream around the meringues.
Prepare the caramel: in a small pot, put the other cup of sugar until it caramelizes, stirring constantly. Add the almonds and turn off the heat.
Carefully put the candy on top of the meringue.
Serve hot.

TIPS

You can avoid preparing the candy and buy one already prepared (like ice cream).
