Raw eggs - is this recipe safe?
I was planning to make one of my mom's recipes to serve to four family members over 65. It occured to me it has raw eggs in it. What do you think?
Angel Food Cake Dessert
Break angel food cake into small pieces. Melt 2 cakes German sweet choc, 4 TBL sugar and 4 TBL water in double boiler. Let cool. Beat 4 egg yolks and add to choc mixture. Beat 4 egg whites 'til stiff. Beat 1/2 pint whipping cream. Stir whipping cream into choc first. Fold egg whites in. Layer not quite 1/2 of cake in pan, then 1/2 choc mixture, layer of cake, remaining choc. Can add nuts.
I haven't made it in years but it is very good. But - it dawned on me in the shower this morning - raw eggs right?
