Dark chocolate flan with white chocolate sauce

Chocolate lover's paradise. 55% dark chocolate flan with a white chocolate sauce: the texture inside is soft, creamy and non-liquid. The recipe is from Sa. If you like dark chocolate, try increasing the percentage of cocoa, Maybe with a 65%: I promised myself to do it myself next time. Doses of flan are perfect for 8 people using the classic aluminum baking cups, but the sauce is very good: However, you can freeze it and use it later or halve the doses. I'm used’ a perfect dessert for a big dinner, provided that it is not in too many, because you have to prepare immediately. For this I recommend as dessert for Valentine's day, because it is a blend of sweetness and worth the wait the 15 minutes of preparation (prepared before the oven so that it is already hot) to eat it together.

Ingredients for 8 people:

for the flan

  • 1OO grams of butter
  • 100 grams of dark chocolate at 55%
  • 50 grams of flour 00
  • 150 grams of caster sugar
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • butter and flour for the baking cups

for the sauce

  • 350 grams of white chocolate
  • 250 of cream
  • 250 ml whole milk

Melt in the microwave or water bath chocolate and butter cut into pieces. Meanwhile, mix the three whole eggs together with the egg yolks until they become white, then add flour and sugar and continue to whisk until the mixture is very puffy and fluffy. At this point, combine melted butter with chocolate, that must be at a temperature of about 30 degrees (If you touch the mixture with a fingertip you should hear him barely warm).

Preheat oven to 200 degrees static grease and flour the cups and pour the mixture to about 1 cm from the edge. Bake for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop the white chocolate, put the cream and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil over low heat for 2 minutes and pour over the chocolate, stirring carefully until chocolate melts.

Serve the flan by inverting firmly on the plate and by spraying everything with abundant sauce.

THE PAIRING: To choose the balance between sweetness and acidity Calcaia noble rot of farm house Barberani of Orvieto.

No, This is not the tart with heart liquid, is a flan. Patty has different ingredients, a minimum amount of flour so that in 8 minutes of cooking liquid remains outside and inside crystallize. I find it rather indigestible. In addition, in this case if the inside was liquid would mix the sauce by a mixture quite bizarre… If you want the pie with the heart liquid you need to try another recipe… I haven't put on the blog, but I promise I'll do it.

Hi Pier Paolo, Welcome. Then, you have to blend together the three whole eggs with two egg yolks in addition. I'm used’ a very simple dessert. I recommend just to butter well the molds and to be careful when cooking to prevent it from being too dry., the consistency should be frothy but not liquid inside, Once cooked. Let me know, Hi, ADA

You can't say that they prepare ste treats in minutes, Why incite to Sin! Provocation to put aside all the good intentions! And this is not nice…. But it is so good!!! I'm not one for the fondant hard, so the 55 suits me, but I pass out literally with white chocolate sauce… I will even betroth thee for the occasion…. or, better, i'il set x 2 and…
