White chocolate and raspberry steamed brûlée style dessert

Decadent white chocolate, double cream and raspberries are a winning combination in this steamed dessert. The steam cavity is perfect for this type of pudding. Rather than a traditional burned sugar crust this brûlée has a sour cream topping which helps to cut through the sweetness of the white chocolate.

Cooks notes

  • The cooking time in the steam cavity may vary slightly by one or two minutes depending on if you have a Nexus steam cavity or a standard built-in steam cavity.
  • Easily double or triple the recipe. The beauty of steam cooking is that you do not need to double the cooking time!
