On that note, just another of my favorite quote follows :)

fav quote

2 cups Double cream 
½ cup Whole milk
141 g Dark chocolate, good quality & roughly chopped
5 Egg yolks
¼ cup Caster sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract

Hot water (to fill in roasting pan while baking for uniform heating of custard's).
Whipped cream & Chocolate curls (while serving).


  • Preheat oven to 148°C/ 128°C fan. 
  • Firstly, simmer both double cream and whole milk in a pan. 
  • Add the chopped dark chocolate and whisk until it is fully melted. (It will start to look like a pan full of hot chocolate).
  • You can keep it aside to cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile combine the egg yolks, caster sugar and vanilla extract until well combined.
  • Now slowly add the chocolate mixture, whisking through until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Using a fine strainer, strain this mixture into a pitcher (this helps in getting the smooth texture for your custards)
  • Pour this mixture into ramekins about 3/4th way up.
  • Transfer the filled ramekins into a roasting pan and slide it into the oven.
  • Now fill the roasting pan with hot water until it reaches half way up the ramekins.
  • Bake for 30 - 35 mins until the custards are set. 
  • After taking out of the oven let the custards cool on a wire rack for sometime.
  • Then you can cover them and keep in fridge until serving.
  • While serving, add a dollop of whipped cream and few chocolate curls.

Notes: You can prepare the whipped cream by combining a cup of double cream, few drops of vanilla extract and a Tbsp of Icing sugar. Whip them using an electric beater until soft peaks are formed.
