DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the first amount of sugar with the water and lemon juice in a small, heavy-based saucepan.
  • Cook over gentle heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Swirl the pan from time to time, but do not stir.
  • Once the sugar is liquified, bring the syrup to a boil and cook until golden brown.
  • While preparing the syrup, heat 4 custard cups in a 350 degree oven.
  • When the syrup is ready, pour into the dishes and swirl to coat the sides and base evenly.
  • Leave to cool at room temperature.
  • Chop the chocolate into small pieces and heat with the milk and cinnamon, stirring occasionally to help the chocolate dissolve.
  • Whisk the whole eggs and the yolks together with the remaining sugar until slightly frothy.
  • Gradually whisk in the chocolate milk.
  • Remove cinnamon stick.
  • Carefully pour the chocolate custard into the custard cups and place them in a roasting pan.
  • Pour hand hot water in pan to a depth of one inch.
  • Place the roasting pan in the oven and bake the custards until just slightly wobbly in the center, about 20-30 minutes.
  • Cool at room temperature and refrigerate for several hours or overnight before serving.
  • Loosen the custards carefully from the sides of the dishes and invert onto serving plates.
  • Shake to allow the custard to drop out.
