Meringue and Strawberry-Lemon Hot Sauce Custard




Introduction: Meringue and Strawberry-Lemon Hot Sauce Custard

About: I'm pretty much a scrapper when it comes to my projects. I like to use what ever I have lying around the house.

This is a meringue star on top of a strawberry-lemon hot sauce custard I made. It was my first time, but it turned out really delicious. You should definitely try making it. 

Step 1:

First start off by making the meringue. I used this website's technique: . The ingredients in mine were:
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup of confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar
The equipment that you will need is:
  • stand mixer
  • bowl (I used glass)
  • whisk
  • spatula
  • piping bag (and tip)
  • sheet ray
  • parchment paper
  • sauce pan
First bring some water in the sauce pan to a boil. Preheat oven to 200 F. Separate the the egg white from the egg (save the egg yolk). mix in the white vinegar. put the bowl with the mixture in the saucepan. Whisk in the sugar until it is completely melted. Then remove the bowl from the heat. Use the electric mixer to whisk the the meringue. Start on slow and progressively make it faster as it starts to thicken. When the meringue can hold it point it's ready. Put it in the piping bag and pipe medium sized stars onto the parchment paper on the tray. Place in oven and cook for 1-2 hours or until firm (the tips will be slightly browned). 

Step 2:

To make the custard you will need:
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon of corn starch
  • 1/4 cup of evaporated milk
  • 4 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • about 3 strawberries
  • some hot sauce (amount depends on your taste)
The equipment you will need are:
  • 2 small bowls
  • 1 lemon juicer
  • whisk
  • knife
  • chopping board

Step 3:

In 1 bowl add the egg yolk, 2 tablespoons of the sugar, the corn starch,  and the evaporated milk. Juice your lemon in the other bowl. Dice your strawberries small and add it to your lemon juice. Add 2 tablespoons of your sugar and some hot sauce to your taste. Mix both mixtures together.

Step 4:

Put in a small bowl and cook in the oven on 375 F for 20-30 minutes or until thick.

Step 5:

Now your done. Just plate your dessert and enjoy! :D
