Floating island dessert is an easy fun french dessert recipe made of light vanilla custard with a poached meringue floating on top.
This French island dessert really means something to me because it was the dessert my grandma Maria cooked for me after school when I was a kid. This recipe post is for her: my missed loved and good cook French grandma Maria.
I reviewed her favorite French floating island recipe to be 100 % Keto + Sugar-free +Low carb using few tricks. Of course, I will still give you her original French recipe but in case it is the one you prefer to try.
So all you need to make this lovely French island dessert is 4 ingredients:
The recipe I am sharing today was the first recipe I learned. My first experience in the kitchen creating something special. I was so proud. I was 8 years old and I was too small to reach the benchtop so grandma installed a chair with a big cushion to sit me there.
This day I separated my first egg apart and I remember how I was impressed by her doing this with one hand. Then came the crucial step of this recipe. Whisking the egg really fast with my hand whisk until they are firm and form a stiff peak.
Most chefs will tell you to upside down the bowl of your egg white to check if they are firm enough. Grandma had a different approach. She was always telling me: While you still feel your arm, it is not ready!
She was like this, my grandma. A strong little woman who was putting lots of love and energy in anything she did. Each meal, recipes were a real work and it was tastier than anything you can eat now.
It is the best and easiest French family dessert to prepare. It consists of a fluffy steamed meringue floating on a light vanilla custard and traditionally topped with a caramel sauce.
Usually, this dessert is made with a bit of sugar – to form the meringue – but I tried it with Natural Sweeteners as well for diabetics like me. It works perfectly too.
