This molded white gelatin makes an impressive dessert at brunch. Serve it with custard sauce and bright red raspberries.


  • 2 tablespoons dried egg whites (equivalent to 3 egg whites)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 unflavored gelatin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 recipe Custard Sauce (see recipe below)
  • Fresh raspberries
  • Orange peel curls (optional)


  1. In a small mixing bowl, reconstitute dried egg whites according to package directions; set aside.
  2. In saucepan, mix sugar, gelatin and salt. Stir in water; heat and stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat; transfer to a large mixing bowl. Stir in lemon juice. Cover and chill until mixture is partially set, stirring occasionally.
  3. Beat gelatin mixture with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Add reconstituted egg whites. Beat until mixture is about tripled in volume. Pour into an 8-cup mold. Cover and chill at least 7 hours or overnight until set.
  4. Prepare the Custard Sauce.
  5. To serve, unmold gelatin mixture onto a serving plate. Garnish with raspberries and orange peel, if you like. Serve with sauce. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Custard Sauce


  • 3 beaten eggs or 6 beaten egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups scalded milk (heated just until bubbles begin to form around the edge of pan)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla or 2 tablespoons cream sherry or brandy


  1. In a heavy medium saucepan, combine eggs, sugar, and salt. Add scalded milk. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture just coats a metal spoon. Remove pan from the heat and stir in vanilla or cream sherry. Quickly cool the custard by placing the saucepan into a sink or bowl of ice water for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour custard into a bowl. Cover the surface with plastic wrap. Chill at least 1 hour or until serving time.
