Thanks. Recipe advice also needed. My original intention was to make an almond cake (Hazan), it’s mainly egg whites, ground almonds, sugar, lemon zest. I used to make it quite frequently. Then, when I realized it used 8 egg whites, I thought, let’s find something with 8 yolks. I found a recipe for vanilla custard that uses 8 yolks. Then I looked for something that might combine the two. I saw a trifle recipe that called for cake (not almond) and custard, that also used bananas and raspberry puree. Any suggestions for combining the almond cake and the custard? I don’t have a lot of time, so I want it to be fairly simple. I’m afraid I could end up with a mess. I also thought about serving a slice of cake, some custard on the plate, and then drizzling with raspberry puree. Maybe that is the way to go. Thing is, a lot of my guests are quite overweight, so I though it might be handy to have separate components, and they can choose what they want. That’s why I thought of the almond cake to begin with, because it’s light.
About the frozen yolks: I assume I subtract the amount of sugar I mix into the egg yolks from the sugar used in the recipe.
