Cake Foi-Thong

Foi Thong is Thai desserts made from duck eggs and drop into the hot syrup. Thanks to a few friends in Thailand, to share the recipe and idea of made a cake with Thai dessert. It was a wonderful cake! The combination of cake and this foi thong was a very good.

You can make your own Foi Thong, but in Thailand we buy is more easy ;-)
You can try this recipe, if you like to do so.

Ingredients of Foi Thong:
  • 10 duck's eggs
  • 5 hen's eaggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 cups jasmine scented water or normal water

  1. Mixing sugar and jusmine water, heating until the sugar dissolves. Continue heating to the consistency of syrub. 
  2. Break eggs and seperate yolks from white. collect the densest portion of the egg whites and set aside separately. remove all membrane from the yolks and mix the yolk with 2-3 tbsp of the dense portion of the whites.
  3. Heat syrub in copper pan over fairy low heat. Place egg in narrow stemmed funnel and moving the funnel in circles above the hot syrup, drop a thread of egg into the syrup, making 10-30 revolutions.
  4. When the egg has firmed (about 2 minutes), fold the thread over upon itself to form a raft, using a pointed wooden skewer.
  5. Then remove, and place in a jar scented with a fragrant candle and jusmine.
