Project Description

Fluffy egg white clouds floating in vanilla custard. This traditional Hungarian dessert is really nice and very popular among kids (and grown-up kids). It is easy to prepare, light, and extremely delicious.
It is called ”Madártej” (“MOD-AR-TAY”) in Hungarian, which means bird’s milk.
It is a good thing to know that it requires simple ingredients that are easily available at home – eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla sugar, vanilla extract, or vanilla pod.
The egg white clouds are cooked in milk. If made right, the island should be firm and light and the milk should have a consistency of light cream and have a scent of vanilla.
