  • egg yolks
  • caster sugar 2 tbsp

    Heat the oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Cut each pain au chocolat into 3 pieces and put cut side up in a baking dish they’ll fit snugly. Put the cream and milk in a pan. Bring to just below boiling point, then take off the heat and stir in the chocolate until it dissolves (put back on a very gentle heat if you need to).

  • Step 2

    Put the egg yolks in a bowl with the sugar and whisk., slowly adding the chocolate cream to make a custard.
