  • 2 x 11cm x 5cm deep bowls
  • 400 g Ambrosia readymade custard, at room temperature
  • 2 medium eggs, at room temperature
  • 50 g sugar, approx (see weight of whites first)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 160C gas 3.

  • Place the bowls into a small shallow pan or tray and pour in boiling water halfway up the bowls.
  • Cover with a lid or foil and CAREFULLY place into the preheated oven.
  • Cook for 25-35 minutes, until just set and wobbly, don't rush this part.
  • Once it has only just set, remove, cool and chill well.
  • When it is chilled, spread over a very thin layer of caster sugar, melt with a torch, add a second thin layer and melt with a torch again.
  • Weigh the whites, and then weigh double the amount of sugar to whites.
  • Whisk the egg whites until foamy with a pinch of cream of tartar, then add half the sugar, whisk until glossy, finally whisk in the rest of the sugar.
  • Pile onto the top of the creme and bake in a hot oven or torch carefully.
  • Serve with a drizzle of caramel syrup.
