You need 2oz chocolate per egg. 2 eggs is a pretty normal batch size.

Melt the chocolate. Separate the eggs, and whip the egg whites to stiff peaks.

Add the egg yolks to the melted chocolate and stir well to get a smooth mixture.

With a metal spoon, add one spoonful of eggwhite and mix well, then fold in the rest of the eggwhite, being careful not to collapse the precious bubbles.

Put into whatever you are going to serve it from (big bowl, biscuit crust, individual glasses) and chill for 2 hours.

Serve with whipped cream.

This will be too late but... mix crumbed biscuits with butter and push into the bottom of ramekins or a flan dish), heat the cream, stir in broken up chocolate until melted, add a dash of milk and beat til glossy and pour onto biscuit base. Leave to set. Lick saucepan clean.

It's basically a simplified version of Jamie Oliver's "simple chocolate Tart" (I can find the proper recipe/quanitites if you like). I used to make it with a proper pastry case, then got lazy and made it with a biscuit crumb base and now I forget the base and pour it into little pots instead. Next I'll be eating it straight from the saucepan. It works well with marscapone cheese too.

So it's ok to use raw eggs in that recipe and eat it!!!!!

Mine doesn't have raw eggs but they're fine provided you're not ill, infirm or pregnant.

I don't have any cream though, am a bit wary of using raw eggs and eating them! How silly am I?!

Newbarnsleygirl Thu 17-Feb-05 18:41:05

Have just made it!

SoupDragon Thu 17-Feb-05 18:41:37
