Ingredients for Aletria

  • Sugar 1 cup

  • Bread 2 slices

  • Eggs 3

  • Almond essence 1 tablespoon

  • Raisins 10

  • Almonds 5

  • Coconut scraped 1 1/2 cups


Step 1

Heat sugar and two cups of water in a large rounded pan on medium heat stirring till the sugar is completely dissolved. Lower the heat. Trim the crust from bread slices and cut into half inch sized squares. Break the eggs and separate the yolks and the whites. Beat egg yolks till they are thick and creamy. Put the beaten egg yolk into an icing bag with a thin nozzle. Increase the heat to medium and drizzle the egg yolk mixture over the sugar syrup in a cobweb pattern, till all the mixture is used up.

Step 2

Remove the pan from heat and using two forks lift the egg yolk cobwebs very carefully and keep aside. Now put the pan with sugar syrup back on medium heat and add the coconut, bread squares and almond essence. Cook stirring continuously till all the sugar has been absorbed which may take about fifteen minutes. Remove the pan and put the mixture onto a flat serving dish.

Step 3

Place the egg cobwebs in a mound over it. When cool decorate with the raisins and almonds and serve.
