French Fridays with Dorie: floating Islands

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Again it's Friday. Last day of the week. The recipe of this week on French Fridays with Dorie is floating islands. Dorie Greenspan described that, although floating islands floating in creme anglaise, are great, when they are accompanied with homemade chocolate ice cream and drizzled with caramel sauce, they are superb.
We didn't even like them, we loved them! The quantities in the recipe are for 8 persons. That much weren't around at our dinner table last night. So I made half of the recipe. Only forgot to take a smaller baking form, so the islands weren't as high as they used to be. That didn't mind to much.
The preparation was very easy, because you didn't have to boil the milk and spoon the eggwhites at the right time in and out of the milk. This was a recipe in the oven and afterwards just getting them out and chill.
Real easy and nice.
At French Fridays with Dorie, we don't give the recipe, but you can read it in the cookbook of Dorie Greenspan: Around my French table.

We served ours with chocolate ice cream, too, but skipped the caramel. I don't think I will next time, though. It looks so good! Your presentation is beautiful.
