4 egg yolks
3/4 cup castor sugar
3 tspns gelatin
3/4 cup sweet white wine
1 1/2 cup whipped cream
1/2 tspn almond essence
Some silvered almonds
And strawberry sauce
For the strawberry sauce you will need:
250gms fresh strawberries (mashed)
2 tbspns castor sugar
1/2 orange juice and rind
2 tspns cornflour
First get the strawberry sauce ready:
Mash the strawberries with sugar, orange juice and some orange rind (grated).
Put this mixture in a pan, on low flame. Constantly stirring it put cornflour (mixed with water-in paste form) into it.
Let it boil a bit, remove from flame and keep it to cool.
Now, beat the egg yolks, until light & fluffy. Now add sugar and mix.
Meanwhile, soak gelatin in wine & dissolve in a double boiler (keeping a vessel with water to boil and put another vessel into it with this mixture). Stir briskly.
Now let this mixture cool and once cooled add it in the egg mixture, but don't let it curdle!!!
Be very careful. Add the gelatin mixture once cooled completely.
Now, gently with absolutely light hands fold in half of the cream, almond essence & silvered almonds.
Pour mix in the serving dish! And pipe onto it the remaining whipped cream (with an icing bag or else just spoon the cream over it)
Decorate with some more silvered almonds, and let it set in the refrigerator for a while and serve chilled with the strawberry sauce!
