Nb people : 2
Preparation time : 20 min
Heat : 180°C
The ingredients
  • - 4 egg whites and 2 egg yolks
  • - 60g caster sugar
  • - 60g fl our
  • - 1 L vanilla ice-cream
  • - 1 tablespoon icing sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

2. In a bowl, whip the 2 egg yolks and the sugar until the mixture whitens. Add the fl our and mix it in. Delicately incorporate 2 beaten egg-whites. Pour into the rectangular dish, buttered and fl oured, and place in the oven for 25 minutes.

3. Turn out while hot and leave to cool on a grill.

4. When the sweet omelette is cold, cut it in two horizontally. Place the first half in the cooking dish, cover in ice-cream, then add the second half. Press together, cover and place it in the freezer.

5. At the moment of serving, preheat the oven to 140 °C. Whip the 2 remaining egg whites until they are very stiff, incorporating the icing-sugar. Take the cake out of the freezer and decorate it with the egg-whites (using a spoon or an icing-bag).

6. Put the cake in the oven under the grill and leave for 1 minute, until it becomes nicely golden. Serve straight away.

The glass dish is able to cope with thermal shocks. It can thus go straight from the freezer to the oven for this recipe, ie use and care..
