Makes 8 servings
1 egg 8 egg yolks 2 tsp | 10 mL vanilla extract 1 cup | 250 mL granulated sugar 4 cups | 1 L whipping cream 1/3 cup | 75 mL Tre Stelle® Mascarpone 2 squares | 2 oz semi-sweet baker’s chocolate 1/2 cup | 125 mL granulated sugar for brûlée For garnish | optional chocolate shavings
Preheat oven to 325ºF (160ºC). In a medium bowl whisk together the egg, egg yolks, vanilla and half of the sugar; set aside. Meanwhile in a medium saucepan bring whipping cream and remaining sugar to a gentle boil. Remove from heat and add chocolate; stir until melted. Carefully pour approximately 1/4 cup of the hot mixture into the egg mixture, stir, and return the entire mixture back to the pan, add Mascarpone and stir until blended. Pour the custard into 8 ramekins and place in a large roasting pan half filled with hot water. Bake for 30 minutes or until set. Remove from pan, cool and refrigerate until ready to serve. Prior to serving sprinkle 1/2 cup of sugar evenly over custards. Caramelize with a kitchen torch or carefully place under the broiler until sugar browns, being careful not to burn. Top with shaved chocolate.
