  • Pour the remaining batter onto the tray and bake for 160 degree celsius for 20 to 22 minutes or until the bamboo skewer comes out clean.
  • To make chocolate cream filling, heat the saucepan with heavy cream on a low to medium heat on the stove and bring mixture to a light simmer. Stir from time to time.
  • When you see steam rising from the surface and small bubbles forming at the sides, turn off the heat and pour the mixture onto the chocolate immediately.
