My favourite recipe... the moment. It doesn't need a WFO, and I don't have a picture, but I'll post it anyway.

Take ten raw egg yolks, rub them through a seive, add 200 g powdered sugar and the insides of one vanilla pod. Beat it all for a couple of minutes, then slowly add 350 g of Williams (like Kirsch but made with pears Schnapps - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - the German kind, needless to say). Allow it to rest for a day in the fridge, and then try to refrain from drinking it all at once.

I have been told it will keep in the fridge for three weeks, but our's never does.

On a completely unrelated topic... does anyone happen to have any good recipes using lots of egg wites they'd care to share?

Divinity is a good use for egg whites!

Make sure it isn't humid out when you are making it.
It doesn't like to setup in high humidity.

But it makes a good candy.

My mother loves it!

This is one of my favorite uses for egg whites. Komisbrot, an Austrian/German egg white based bread/cake. It's like a light version of a fruit cake, but really good. I make this after I make ice cream and have extra egg whites hanging out.

The recipe uses the volume of egg whites you have to measure everything else against so I am sure it is easily scaled.

The Meringues recipe was interchanged between us in old threads.
Still a good option.
I will try the Komisbrot asap.

Hmmm. Angel food cake will use up those egg whites - and might be good with your recipe (what's it called, anyway?) drizzled over it.

Meringues rule! They are almost as good as divinity... almost.

Wow, Archena!

This was a magical "cuissine" lesson.
Not even mention about me being proud of my meringues abilities.
Great recipes.
Whites, come to me!

Well, I didn't want it going to your head. Besides, a good meringue is its own reward...

Hey, Frances, seriously, what do you call that dessert?

Re: My favourite recipe...
Sorry, havn't been here for a couple of days... thank you for all the ideas!

I'll have to try the Kumisbrot thing, sounds great! Soufle I thought of, but you usually need most of the egg yolks, too. And Meringues of course... once we've properly digested all the Christmas Biscuits.

The desert is a rather alcoholic drink, and is called Egg Liquor with Williams. A variation on your basic Egg Nogg I believe, only without the milk and therefore stronger. And nicer. It tastes sooo goood!

We were giving it away to friends and family this year in painted bottles, so now I've got a deepfreeze full of egg whites...:rolleyes:
