Quick Easy Recipes for the Family (I)

Here are two easy and quick recipes that I prepared for family cooking. And they enjoyed them !
Petits Pots au Chocolat d'Henri (small chocolate pots from Henri). Don't ask me why Henri ? I have no idea.


  • 1 l milk
  • 250 gr chocolate
  • 175 gr sugar
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • Boil milk with sugar
  • Melt chocolate (bain marie). Let cool a bit
  • Mix milk and chocolate
  • Pour on egg yolks and whole egg. Mix but don't get too many bubbles
  • Bake around 20 mn in a 300ºF (150ºC) oven
  • Let cool completely


  • 4 eggs
  • 4 TSB sugar
  • 350 gr mascarpone
  • ladyfingers
  • 1 cup expresso coffee
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Amaretto (opt.)

  • Mix egg yolks, sugar and mascarpone
  • Add stiff peaks whites and mix gently
  • Soak ladyfingers in coffee(do not over soak to keep some crunchiness)
  • In a rimmed dish, lay alternatively biscuits and mascarpone mixture on several layers while sifting cocoa powder on top.
  • Enjoy cold

Tip : if you plate in individual small glasses (verrine), use a pipping bag to fill the mascarpone mixture (it will prevent sides to be dirty)
