  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

Shnenokle is a community recipe submitted by Mirjana and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Set aside 2 dl. from 1 litre of milk and put it in a bowl. Pour the rest of milk (800 ml) into a saucepan and heat to boil and then reduce heat to medium.
  • Meanwhile, whisk egg whites to the stiff peak stage and with a teaspoon take a spoonful out of the mass and put in the hot milk and cook for about 2 minutes, until well raised. Take them out with slotted spoon and put in a deep bowl. When all of them are cooked take the milk away from the heat.
  • In a separate bowl mix sugar and egg yolks, add flour and 2 dl. cold milk and combine, be careful not to have lumps in, and pour in the hot milk stirring constantly. Put the saucepan back and cook on a slow fire to thicken for a couple of minutes. It is less thick than classic custard, do not be afraid!
  • When you take custard off the heat add vanilla extract and 1 tbsp. butter and mix. Pour it at once over white shnenokle, leave to cool at room temperature, and then put the bowl in the refrigerator to cool completely.
  • Serve in small bowls and if you wish put on the top a few spoonfuls of whipped cream, although alone shnenokle is perfectly good.. Notice: When you cook the custard be careful not to allow it to boil, because in that case the eggs will fry and you will get scrambled eggs in milk.
