Blueberry Vanilla Pot De Creme + Toasted Coconut

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 6 oz California Giant blueberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup toasted coconut (I love the large toasted coconut chips from the bulk section in Whole Foods!)

DIRECTIONS

      • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees
      • In a small sauce pot, bring the blueberries and ½ cup sugar to a gently simmer until thick (just a little bit less thick than jam, approx 15-20 minutes), remove from heat and allow to cool in a bowl
      • Set up a deep baking dish that can fit 6 ramekins or small baking dishes
      • Place the ramekins in the baking dish and fill the baking dish with water so that the water comes halfway up the ramekin
      • In a medium sauce pot, bring the milk, cream, and vanilla to a simmer (stirring frequently so that it doesn’t burn) and then immediately turn off heat
      • Meanwhile, whisk together the egg yolks and ⅓ cup sugar until light yellow in color and airy in texture (approx 2-3 minutes)
      • Slowly add the warm milk mixture to the egg yolks while continuously stirring. Be sure not to add to fast or will curdle the eggs!
      • Once all is combined, you are ready to assemble!
      • Pour cream and egg mixture into the ramekins until the mixture comes up ¾ of the way up the sides (Remember, the larger the ramekin, the longer they will take to cook. So this recipe is meant for approximately ½ cup of cream mixture in each or less)
      • In each ramekin, place a dollop of blueberry mixture into the center of the cream mixture
      • Place the baking dish with filled ramekins on the rack of your oven and cover with foil
      • Let cook for 45 minutes or until set, and just slightly jiggly in the middle (think jello pudding)
      • Remove baking dish from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes
      • Remove the ramekins from the baking dish and refrigerate for 4 hours to ensure it is cold throughout
      • Top with fresh blueberries and toasted coconut chips. Enjoy!
