Reviews for Fluffy Lemon Dessert
"This recipe was a disappointment. First, DO NOT put the evaporated milk in a small bowl. I put mine in a 1 qt. bowl and when I beat it the bowl could not contain it. Needless to say, I had a mess on my hands. As for the chilled gelatin, the directions say to beat it UNTIL tiny bubbles form. Tiny bubbles form quickly which leaves a lot of the gelatin still syrupy. When I folded the beaten milk into the gelatin, the syrupy part would not mix in but remained at the bottom of the bowl. I went ahead and put it in the fridge. It eventually solidified but tasted like slightly lemony air bubbles. The recipe is simple and I followed it as written so I'm thinking that something is either missing or not described accurately."
