Recipe by Thermomixer
3 egg yolks
50 g caster sugar (made in Thermomix)
3 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons rum or Pedro Ximenez sherry
Insert Butterfly over blades in Thermomix and add egg yolks and sugar. Cream yolks and sugar for 4 minutes on speed 4.
With the Butterfly still in place, set Thermomix for 7 minutes at 70°C on speed 4. Gradually add the orange juice and rum (or sherry) through the lid.
The mixture should be thick when cooked; you may need to increase the temperature to 80°C and cook slightly longer.
Place mixture into a bowl, cool, cover and chill in the fridge thoroughly before serving.
The sauce is best made on the day it is to be served as it tends to separate.
In the Northern Hemisphere, egg nog is a very traditional drink at Christmas. This is a cool variation that is suitable for the Australian climate.
