    Moseslakecooker's Note:

    This recipe has been in my family for 3 generations. I've been making it for 40 years. It makes a wonderful fluffy batter that keeps in the refrigerator for about week, but it never lasts that long at my house. For health reasons, make sure you add the egg yolks while the mixture is still very warm. Enjoy!

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Mix the sugar, water and syrup in a medium pan. Boil on medium high heat until mixture forms a thread (230 to 233 Degrees F).
    2. 2
      While mixture is boiling, beat 6 egg whites until stiff peaks form, saving beaten yolks in a separate bowl.
    3. 3
      In a Kitchen Aid Mixer on 2 to 4 speed, slowly pour hot syrup mixture over the stiffly beaten egg whites.  Do not scrape the hot pan. Beat mixture on high until it cools slightly -- 2 to 3 minutes.  Then SLOWLY add beaten egg yolks. Beat a few more minutes more, then add vanilla and baking powder. Beat until mixture is cool.
    4. 4
      (Note: Before adding beaten egg yolks, make sure the mixture is very warm, BUT NOT HOT. You don't want the eggs to scramble, but you do want to kill any bacteria. You more experienced cooks can also temper the yolks with about 1/4 cup of the hot mixture, before adding to the mixer.).
    5. 5
      Store in refrigerator in a covered container for about a week.
    6. 6
      To make Tom & Jerry drink:.

      This is a tried and true Tom & Jerry recipe. The directions were thorough and the "batter" was a perfect consistency. I prefer courvoisier cognac in was delicious!

      I made this at the request of my mother and sister, This recipe came together fairly quickly, the sugar was the only thing that took the most time. It was smooth, velvety and better than the Tom and Jerry of my youth. It is definitely more meringue than "batter" but I bet if we didn't drink it all that day, it would have held up much better. It yielded almost 1 gallon of batter, but we like a lot of batter (and brandy) in ours. :)
