This is an ancient recipe from my mother, who got it from her aunt. It requires a bit of jugglery, and moving like you have 6 hands instead of just 2 but, and frankly I’ve never tasted a cold, sweet, dessert souffle as good as this one. Give it a try.

PREPARATION
Mix together sugar, egg yolk and custard powder. Add just 1/2 cup milk and mix till it is totally smooth.

Use a large tray and fill with ice cubes. Place the hot vessel over this to cool as soon as possible. Stir occasionally.

Meanwhile quickly melt the gelatin completely in a double boiler. Then bring to room temperature by taking it off the stove and stirring vigorously.

Quickly whisk the egg whites in a clean dry bowl till absolutely stiff.

Add the cooled gelatin to the cooled custard mixture, mix thoroughly and add the lime juice. Quickly fold in the beaten egg whites. our into serving dishes and put in the refrigerator.
Serve cold when set.
