    Keep mixing for about 3 minutes, then beat the egg whites adding the lemon juice (or some cream of tartar) until they form peaks.

    When cooked, remove from the mould and let cool on a cooling rack.

  • Custard

    Bring the milk with vanilla and the orange blossom to a boil. Remove from the heat and let to infuse for 10 to 15 minutes.

    In a bowl, whish vigorously the yolks with 75% of the sugar. Mix the leftover sugar with the corn starch and add to egg yolk/sugar mix.

    Pour the warm milk onto the egg mix while whisking.

    Put back the mix into the pan, back on the heat, don't stop whisking  and bring to a boil for about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the butter, mix well, cover with cling film (it has to touch the custard so no crust is formed) and place in the fridge.
