I'm just trying to help Miller increase the Irish dessert selection! I must confess to never having made this one. Prep tome includes 1 1/2 hours of setting time.
- 2 1⁄4 cups milk
- 4 eggs, seperated
- 4 tablespoons caster sugar
- 2 tablespoons gelatin
- 1⁄4 cup boiling water
- 1⁄3 cup Irish Mist liqueur
- 1⁄2 cup cream, whipped
- whipped cream (for decoration)
- grated chocolate (, for decoration)
- Bring the milk to boil in a pan.
- Remove from the heat.
- In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks and 2 tablespoons of caster sugar.
- Add the milk and whisk to combine.
- Pour mixture back into the pan, cook over a low heat for 7 minutes; do not boil.
- Dissolve the gelatine in boiling water, and add to the hot milk mixture, stirring well.
- Pour in the Irish Mist, and refrigerate for about 40 minutes or until the mixture begins to set.
- Beat the egg whites until soft peaks begin to form, sprinkle with the remaining castor sugar, and beat until it dissolves.
- When the milk and egg mixture begins to set, fold through the whipped cream and beaten egg whites.
- Pour into 8 glass serving dishes, and refrigerate until fully set.
- Decorate with the extra whipped cream and chocolate.
I'm sorry this recipe has failed you twice, but I think it is perfectly acceptable to post untried recipes if you admit the fact. This site is like a large recipe book and when you buy a recipe book, there are no real guarantees that every recipe will work-I personally know this from my own experience. I would quit trying to make the recipe and wasting money.
This recipe sounds wonderful and enticing. I have now prepared it twice (a second time to make sure I didn't omit anything, skip steps, etc.), but the cream DOES NOT set. I am assuming it is because of the alcohol in the Irish Mist, which can, under some circumstances, counteract setting... am tinkering with it and will update when I have a version that works. Right now, I am still alittle miffed that I have wasted a lot of ingredients... Irish Mist is rather expensive. My advice: Don;t post anything here unless you have tried it first. Posting untried recipes is a disservice to others.
