This week's Tuesday with Dorie is hosted by Shari of Whisk: A Food Blog, who chose Dorie's Floating Islands. Dorie tells us that this is a classic French dessert.
Floating Islands consist of creme anglaise, with oval-shaped meringues poached in milk floating on top, and traditionally decorated with spun sugar strands. I wanted to like this, honestly; however, to me, it tasted like egg custard topped with egg white omelette. This is not what I prefer for dessert - I think I would have liked this better as a breakfast dish. My creme anglaise was very thick, so I had no issues with getting the "islands" to float. I only made a third of the recipe, and that was more than enough.
My "islands" were topped with passionfruit and raspberries, which made them look good, even if I didn't fancy the taste.
Thanks to Shari for hosting TWD this week. To see how the other Tuesday with Dorie members fared with this recipe, do check out the blogroll.
