Ingredients
  • 9 T raw cacao powder (1/2 cup + 1 T)
  • 3 T coconut oil or butter
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar (or 2 T less)
  • 3/4 cup coconut cream or heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup nut milk or whole milk
  • 4 egg yolks
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. In the top half of a double boiler (or a bowl suspended over simmering water), melt the cacao powder, oil or butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1/2 cup coconut or dairy cream. (If using coconut, open a full fat can of coconut milk and skim the cream off the top.) Use a whisk to stir and break up any cacao chunks. Stir until well combined and silky, and then remove from heat.
  3. In a small saucepan, gently warm the remaining 1/4 cup of cream and 1/4 cup of sugar (or 2 T for less sweet) with the milk, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat.
  4. Separate the yolks from whites: crack the eggs and using the egg shell, pour the white off and drop the yolk into the other half of the shell, back and forth a few times until separated. You can also use the shell to scrape off the egg-white attachment spot.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk the yolks and slowly stir in the warm milk mixture, whisking carefully to combine well. Then whisk in the chocolate mixture.
  6. Divide into eight 2-ounce ramekins and place them in a casserole dish filled with hot water up to about 1/4 inch below the top of the ramekin.
  7. Bake 30-35 minutes. Custard should be set at edge, but still bulge a bit in the center if you tip the ramekin. Remove and let cool a bit. Serve warm or put in the refrigerator to cool where they will set up more.
Recipe Notes

You'll need 2-ounce ramekins, or make larger servings by using four of the 4-ounce size, but then cook 40-45 minutes. You can use less cream and more milk, too. Adapted from O Magazine, July 2007.
