Oeufs à la neige for Marillyn – Sweet Wholesome Wednesday
Lovely Marillyn from “Just Making Noise” and living in Costa Rica with her family asked me to be her Sweet Wholesome Wednesday special guest and I proudly accepted, no one has ever asked me to be a guest on a blog, so I was very flattered. I really wanted to make something that would fit her cooking style, and make it wholesome. So I substituted regular milk to this recipe with almond milk, which is quite nutritious and healthy.
You should check her blog, she has the most amazing recipes and composition of fruits, healthy desserts and nutritious dishes made with wholesome and natural products. Living in Costa Rica, you must find the most exotic and freshest fruits we can dream of here. She even promised me to make homemade Nutella with organic hazelnuts. How exciting is that?
After being indecisive (as usual) about my dessert, and going back and forth between French or Italian, I decided to go ahead with this classic and traditional French dessert called “Oeufs à la neige” (eggs “snow-style”). A fluffy meringue cooked in vanilla milk laying on top of a vanilla custard.
If you want to get the recipe of “Oeufs à la neige” check it out, it’s on her blog, “Just Making Noise“
Thanks Marillyn! It was great making this special dessert for you, just hope you like it! It was an honor to be your special guest. Merci encore et à bientôt !

Are you still without a kitchen? it’s been a while…
such a great dessert!we have the same recipe,but the name is egg -flip (lait de poule),french proveniences.
As French as a baguette – it’s a light dessert, but easy to eat the whole thing by yourself, then it’s no longer light
Ahaha thanks! yes the monkey head, I still want a piece of it!
Thanks! It’s kind of fun – maybe I will have a guest on my blog too!
I love this dessert ! My mother is a specialist and I always cook the “caramel” ! We call this in France also “Oeufs en neige” instead of “Ile Flottante” !
See you ! xxx
This looks both light and rich, all at the same time! What a treat it must be to enjoy!
