This one is care-free because the egg yolks are whisked over a hot water bath, no egg whites are used for the cream. It's quite mellow in flavor, my kids (all but one) loved the soft and creamy taste. The next time I made it into a more adult version by adding some liquor in the dipping espresso, we loved that one even more; the kids weren't too pleased...
Now for the recipe... I know I read it somewhere and copied it on one of the many scraps of paper..... then when I wanted to thank her for the recipe couldn't remember where I read it. I think it's from you Ari, please check Baking and Books, recipe to be found here.
