Chocolate Crémeux Recipe

If you like chocolate, you’ll love this.

I’ve been asked for a recipe for something sweet and chocolatey, and this definitely fits the bill!

As you would expect using a better quality chocolate ends up with a better tasting desert.

Lets get to it!

Ingredients (serves 6-8)
For the base
  •     30g butter
  •     50g self raising flour
  •     30g demarara sugar
  •     1 or 2 tsp cocoa powder
For the filling
  •     1 egg
  •     100ml whipping cream
  •     150ml whole milk
  •     150g dark chocolate (min.70% cocoa solids)
Cooking method (45+ minutes)
  1.     First make the base, preheat the oven to 160-170°c (fan) and line a baking tray with baking paper and place a tart ring on top (if you don’t have a tart ring you can use the outer part of a cake tin that holds the base in place).
  2.     Mix the butter, sugar, flour and cocoa powder to make a crumble and layer over the bottom of the tart ring to create the base, cook for 10-15 minutes, remove from oven and leave to cool.
  3.     Now for the filling, make a bain marie with a bowl and saucepan of water to melt the chocolate in, whilst it’s melting bring the milk and cream to a boil and beat the egg in a seperate bowl.
  4.     As the milk and cream comes up to boil remove it from the heat and slowly pour it over the egg whilst whisking constantly, then slowly pour this into the chocolate mixture whilst whisking.
  5.     Pour the mixture over the base, cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.
  6.     Enjoy! try not to put yourself ito a diabetic coma with these things..
