TWD: Floating Islands

This week's Tuesday's With Dorie was chosen by Shari from Whisk: A Food Blog.

Floating Islands, aka, Creme Anglaise with a cooked meringue and drizzled caramel.
Never have I ever heard of these. But since I've been MIA, I thought I'd give them a try! I was really nervous about the meringue, but ended up passing that step with flying colors. It was the creme anglaise that I struggled with. Mine had little lumps in them. But it still tasted a lot like a custary ice cream. I also bypassed the caramel making and defaulted to the jar I had in the fridge due to screaming children that needed my attention.

I enjoyed trying something new and am glad that I tried it! It was tasty, but something I will probably not make again. All that egg is just not good for me! My 11 year old daughter even thought it tasted alright!
