A classical dessert. Not for the health-conscious. As with all recipes with raw eggs: be very careful with hygiene, and don't serve to the elderly, pregnant women, and small children. Can easily be made in bulk if frozen in a cake form; just slice the required number of servings and put the remainder back in the freezer. The cooking time does not include waiting time while freezing.
