Ever had a sweet omelette for dessert? They’re a little like soufflés in texture and taste but they certainly look different. Thankfully they don’t take very long to make because you must make them immediately before serving if you want a perfect dish.
Everyone looks for something unique when entertaining friends and family. This is a delightful dessert.
Start by turning the griller in your oven on. That way it will be nice and hot when your eggs are ready. Making them wait while the grill heats will result in a poorer quality fluffy omelette.
Cream the caster sugar into the egg yolks until the sugar has dissolved. Cover and set aside.
Prepare a 22 cm pan and add the butter so it will be ready to place on the heat when the eggs are ready. Whisk the egg whites till stiff but not dry peaks form. Add salt and water and continue to whisk until fully incorporated.
Add one tablespoon of this mixture to the egg yolks to loosen and then fold the egg yolks into the egg whites.
Turn the pan on and wait for the butter to begin to melt and begin to froth. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Cook for 30 seconds to set the bottom and then place under the preheated grill.
Watch carefully as the mixture will rise and it only needs to stay in the oven until the omelette begins to set, blister and take on some color.
Remove from the heat and add any sort of filling you desire. You could add fruit to the mixture before cooking, fill with whipped cream, chocolate, nuts – anything you’ve got in your pantry.
Cut into triangles and serve garnished with icing sugar, toasted nuts and drizzled honey.Social tagging: Eggs > recipe
