Ingredients
  

Custard

  • 12 medium egg whites free-range
  • 1/3 tsp sea salt
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp powdered stevia or monk fruit sweetener
  • 4 tbsp ground (roasted) walnuts organic
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk organic

Filling

  • 12 medium yolks free-range
  • 100 ml (1/2 cup) hot water
  • 400 g (7 0z) butter (room temperature) We used goat butter
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract organic
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tbsp powdered stevia or monk fruit sweetener
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer. Add lemon juice and salt. Keep beating until you get a firm meringue. Add powdered sweetener and continue beating at a high speed. When your meringue is thick and firm, reduce the speed of your mixer to the minimum and add psyllium. Gently mix. 
  • Add walnut meal spoon by spoon, and gently mix with a spatula.
  • Line 2 large baking pans (50x50 cm 20x20 inches) with a parchment paper and pour in 1/2 of the mixture in one pan and the other half in the other pan. Using a large knife even the mixture to get a thin layer of custard. 
  • Place both pans into the oven at 100ºC (212ºF) for an hour. Since they will be at different altitudes, flip them so that the lower one is also exposed to the top heater, and bake for 45 minutes total. They should dry out, but not burn. 
  • If your oven cannot have 2 pans at the same time, prepare the mixture with half ingredients. Bake the first custard, and then repeat everything with the second one. In this case, you'll need more time, but patience is a virtue!
  • When the custards are ready, cut them in half to get 4 rectangular shapes 25x50 cm (10x20 inches)

Filling

  • Beat the softened butter with an electric mixer till you get a fluffy cream.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the yolks with hot water and sweetener. Add salt, vanilla, lemon juice.
  • Slowly start adding the yolks to the butter. Keep mixing until you get a smooth and silky cream.
  • Place the first custard leaf on a big serving plater and spread some of your butter-yolk cream all over it. Repeat until you've used all of the cream and top it with some more cream.
  • Sprinkle with powdered stevia or monk fruit. or ground walnuts on top. 
  • Cut 24 pieces using a thin wet knife and serve when it is well chilled.
