Season well with honey, salt, pepper and the balsamic vinegar and boil down again until a slightly thick sauce is formed.

Tip: A good sauce takes time! The longer it is boiled down, the better it tastes. If you like it, you can add a little ice-cold butter to the sauce at the very end - this binds it even better and gives it a fine taste.

Whisk the egg yolks well, add to the lukewarm or cooled liquid and mix well. Place 4-6 glass or souffle molds on a perforated sheet and pour in the mixture. Steam in the steamer at 90 ° C for 30 minutes. Let cool down.

set

  • approx. 30 g flaked almonds
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar

Honeycomb

  • 30 g butter
  • 25 g honey
  • 50 g powdered sugar 25 g flour

Mix all ingredients and put the mixture in a cool place. Preheat the oven to 220 ° C (hot air). Shape into small balls (nut-sized) and place on a baking sheet lined with paper. Calculate a distance of approx. 3 cm between the individual balls.

Deco option: Bake at 220 ° C for approx. 4-5 minutes. The mass must be smooth and have a honeycomb pattern. Take out the tray and let it cool down.

Basket option: Bake at 220 ° C for approx. 4-5 minutes. The mass must be smooth and have a honeycomb pattern. Remove the tray and, as soon as they can be detached, place the honeycombs over a glass bowl or a rolling pin and let them cool down. Be careful - you will have the best results here if you bake a maximum of 2 baskets per operation.

Store in a dry place on kitchen paper.

Tip: You are completely free with the shapes as well as the size. If you would like a larger basket (e.g. for serving several ice cream scoops), simply twist a larger scoop out of the base mixture and then bake it. The honeycombs can also be left flat and look so nice as a decoration on a dessert.
