Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
4 portions
Metric Imperial

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup 35% cooking cream
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust flavour)
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup fine maple sugar
  • 3 tbsp maple flakes

Method

  1. Warm the cream in a saucepan. In a bowl, mix the egg yolks with the maple syrup and, off the heat, add the mixture to the cream. Return the pan to low heat and thicken the mixture, being careful not to boil it. Allow to cool.
  2. Use an electric mixer to whip the egg whites with the cornstarch, gradually adding the maple sugar until peaks form.
  3. Divide the egg whites among four cups so they are three-quarters full. Microwave for 15 to 20 seconds.
  4. Pour the maple cream into four shallow bowls, top with the cooked egg whites, and sprinkle with maple flakes.

NOTE: Snow eggs can also be poached in milk.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
