Créme Au Chocolat/Baked Chocolate Cream

French desserts are incomplete without a chocolate dessert, chocolate based desserts are the most famous desserts from French cuisine. French chocolate mousse or French chocolate cream are quite famous around the world and seriously i do these baked chocolate cream once a while at home coz they goes for eggs. Since am keeping myself away from eggs,i dont bake desserts or cakes with eggs quite often but once a while its really fabulous to have this kind of rich dessert. Coming to this baked chocolate cream, this dish is an easy breezy dessert, which can be prepared quickly eventhough this baked chocolate cream need atleast two hours to get set in fridge.Each and every spoon of this baked chocolate cream is just simply out of the world.

This chocolate cream cant be baked without eggs and eggs are the prominent ingredient for making this rich,delicious and incredible dessert.This baked French chocolate cream is an another challenge i suggested to the members of a monthly baking event called  Home Baker's Challenge where we bake many beautiful bakes with simple ingredients at home. If you are interested, do join the group and learn many bakes together with other members. Every month, a host will suggest her baking challenge and the member of the group prepared one out of the bakes suggested by the host. Since am the host of January, i challenged the group members with French baked goodies.

Enjoy this cream with some whipped cream or else with some caramel bites.

You may see the creme not cooked in the center after baking, dont worry they will turn hard once they gets chilled.

Egg yolks need to be at room temperature.

You can add sugar more or less as per your need.
