“This is a Dutch classic and very easy to make. As I love the taste of coffee, I choose to use brewed strong coffee for this recipe, but alternatively you can use the same amount of instant coffee. You can also make it low-fat by using skim or fat-free milk. Enjoy this all-time Dutch favorite!” - by BRIGIT
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- In a small bowl, mix together the custard powder and 1/2 cup of the milk; set aside. Sprinkle the sugar into a saucepan over medium heat. When the sugar begins to caramelize, add the remaining milk and coffee to the pan, and bring to a boil. At this stage, the caramel will become very crusty. Reduce heat to low, and cook until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Stir in the custard powder mixture, and cook, stirring until the custard thickens. Remove from heat, and whisk in the egg yolk.
- In a clean glass or metal bowl, whip the egg white until soft peaks form. Fold the egg white carefully into the custard mixture. Transfer to a serving dish and refrigerate until firm.

"This was a little too sweet however had a lovely flavour and was thick & creamy. Next time I would reduce the sugar to a quarter cup as caramelizing the sugar intensifies the flavour. The sugar really..." See more did get stiff when the milk mixture was added but melted down again as the recipe stated. Would like to try this with chocolate as a flavouring rather than coffee."
"Easy to make and delicious. Use strong coffee for best taste. Hint: Don't use a plastic spoon to stir it. I ended up with melted plastic bits in my first batch...." See more"
