Romero & Mujica Family Feast, Westfield, MA
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp water
- ½ Tsp lemon juice
- ¼ cup rum
- 2 cups prunes, pitted
- 1 ½ cup milk
- 1 ½ cup condensed, sweet milk
- 1 ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 ½ cup cream cheese
- 4 egg yolks
- 2 Tbsp plain gelatin
- ½ cup water, cold
In a sauce pan, combine sugar, water and lemon juice. Cook on medium-low heat, 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the caramel reaches a deep, golden brown. Remove from heat.
Pour the caramel mixture into the bottom of a 1½-2 quart soufflé or similar sized baking dish.
In a saucepan, gently heat the rum and prunes to just a simmer, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and line the prunes over the caramel.
Use a blender to mix the milk, condensed milk, cream cheese and eggs until all lumps are removed. Heat the mixture in a saucepan, over low heat, stirring constantly. Cook for 10 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl add the cold water, sprinkle the gelatin over and stir until dissolved. Add the 3 milk mixture, stirring constantly until all lumps are removed.
Pour the liquid mixture into the prepared mold containing the prunes and caramel.
Refrigerate for 6-8 hours. Serves: 6.
