  • Bake 8 minutes or until set.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Filling: Mix sugar, flour, cornstarch and salt in a medium size saucepan.
  • Whisk in 1 cup of the milk until smooth.

  • Pour this back into saucepan and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, whisking constantly, until slightly thicker.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Add chocolate, butter and vanilla and stir until chocolate and butter melt.
  • Pour into a bowl.

  • Cover as before and refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours or up to 3 days.
  • Just before serving, garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle by stirring it through a strainer.
