Stir pudding powder, 5 tbsp. sugar and 6 tbsp. milk until smooth. Bring the remaining milk to the boil in a saucepan (be careful: it will boil over quickly!). Remove the saucepan from the stove and stir in the pudding powder.
Bring to a boil again, stirring, and gently bubble for at least 1 minute.
Separate the eggs. Stir the egg yolks and 2 tablespoons of hot pudding. Now stir into the rest of the pudding and remove from the heat.
Whip egg whites until stiff, adding 2 tbsp. sugar. Fold the whipped egg whites into the hot pudding in flakes. Fill into 4 cappuccino cups or dessert bowls. Cool slightly. Decorate with baby pears or halved pear halves. Bring to the table warm or cooled.
The perfect snow … is only created when the baking bowl and whisk are absolutely free of grease.
It is best to rinse both thoroughly with warm water and washing-up liquid and dab with a clean dishcloth. Also, under no circumstances should the egg whites contain remnants of egg yolk, because then they will not stiffen.
