This is a recipe that I have successfully mastered, recreating it time and time again to everyones delight.

It's light but rich, no baking required and it's just delicious!!


  • 7 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup (165g) caster sugar
  • 200g good-quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 250g unsalted butter, chopped, softened
  • 65g good-quality cocoa powder, sifted
  • 600ml thickened cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Lightly grease an 8cm x 22cm (1-litre capacity) terrine. Line with plastic wrap, leaving the excess to hang over the sides.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl for 5 minutes or until thick and pale. Place bowl over a pan of simmering water (make sure bowl doesn't touch the water). Add chocolate and whisk for 5-6 minutes until melted. Add butter one piece at a time, whisking between each addition until melted. Remove from heat and fold in cocoa.
  • Beat cream and vanilla until soft peaks form. Fold a little cream into chocolate mixture. Fold in remainder until combined. Pour into terrine, fold over plastic wrap to cover, then refrigerate overnight
  • Turn out terrine, cut into slices and top with strawberries and creme anglaise.
