    1. Bring milk to the boil. Set to low heat and add sugar.
    2. In a small bowl, mix together baking powder and milk powder. Add the egg white and knead the mixture to make a smooth dough. Shape into cherry-sized balls and drop into the simmering milk.
    3. Cook until the balls become double in size. The balls are cooked through when the middle is soft in texture.
