Ingredients for 10 people (for small size cups):

  • 800 ml of cream
  • 180 grams of egg yolks
  • 130 grams caster sugar
  • 90 milliliters of fresh whole milk
  • the zest of four to five organic mandarins (Depending on the size)
  • brown sugar to caramelize the sweet

Preheat the oven to 140 degrees static. Put the egg yolks and caster sugar in a bowl and mix with a spoon until mix. No need to assemble with whips, just mix. Pour the cream into a small Pan, milk and finely grated zest of tangerines and bring to a boil, then pour the mixture quickly stir eggs with a spatula-wire. Pour the cream into the molds, filling them nearly flush.

Put the ramekins in a baking pan and fill with cold water up to 2/3 in height: Bake in the oven until, gently touching the cream with a fingertip, the surface will resist but the cream will still be flickering. Start checking after about 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the containers that you used: less cream there is, first Cook.

Allow to cool and keep the cream in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap. Before serving, DAB the surface of the cream from any drops of water (can be formed in a wet environment such as refrigerator) and sprinkle with brown sugar, then caramelize with cannellino. If you don't have it, You can preheat the oven at maximum temperature grill function and put the cream under the grill for two minutes, until the sugar will caramelize.

Hi dear, honestly I've never done this before. The limit you may try it on low heat, with a spread flame so as not to concentrate the heat, putting 3-4 sheets of parchment paper on the baking tray on which rest the cocotte. Then covering everything with aluminum to create an oven effect. But you must check very often because it risks that the cream sets too, especially on the bottom if you try let me know, We may find an alternative method of cooking. I embrace you. ADA.
