Lily wanted to make an easy chocolate dessert after the failure of chocolate mousse last week. It wasn't a failure really, but she has decided that she doesn't like chocolate mousse.
Anyway this is 'Jamie Olivers' recipe from the book 'The Naked Chef Returns'.
You will need
- 300 mls of cream
- 200g of dark chocolate - Lily used 60% cocoa as she doesn't like it too bitter
- 2 large egg yolks
- 3 Tbs of brandy - Lily said she would not put it in next time
- 20g butter
Heat the cream in a pot not quite till boiling. Remove and set aside for 1 minute before adding the chocolate, broken up into pieces. Stir until melted and smooth. Next add the egg yolks and brandy and stir until smooth. Allow to cool a little before adding the butter. Stir till smooth.
Pour into serving pots and place them in the fridge for a few hours until set.
Lily gives it a 7 out 10.
