Petits Pots de Crème au Chocolat

Serves 8

Michel RouxDesserts


3 free-range eggs

4 free-range egg yolks

100g caster sugar

220ml milk

220ml single cream

170g bitter chocolate


Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4.

Whisk the eggs and yolks with the sugar until pale.

Bring the milk and cream to the boil before adding and stirring the chocolate.

Pass the custard through a sieve and pour into little pots or cups. Carefully remove all the froth from the tops and put on the lids or foil. Make a little hole in the foil tops, if using.

Place the pots in an ovenproof dish and pour in enough hot water to reach about a third of the way up the sides of the dish. Bake for about 30 minutes or until set, depending on the size. Smaller pots won’t take quite as long.

Traditionally these simple little sweets are served just as they are, but if you want to dress them up, pipe a little rosette of Chantilly Cream.
