“"The citizens of The Hague are often accused, rightly or wrongly so, of bragging or showing off. The following recipe, "The Hague Bluff" is so named because it produces quite a fluffy dessert out of practically nothing. It is a great favourite with Dutch children." Posted for Zaar World Tour '06”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons raspberry flavored syrup
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 ladyfingers

Directions

  1. Put raspberry syrup, sugar and the unbeaten white of egg in a deep bowl or in an electric-mixer.
  2. Beat by hand 10 minutes or more, the idea being that the longer one beats, the more one gets.
  3. Serve with a wafer or a lady finger.
  4. In Holland it is made of red currant juice, but I believe that is not available in the shops in England and America.
  5. But you can choose raspberry syrup as a substitute.
