Method

  1. Whisk egg yolks with the sugar and vanilla in a large bowl, using an electric hand-whisk for ease. Whisk in the coffee and liqueur.
  2. Put the bowl over a pan of hot water and carry on whisking until the mixture is thick and doubled in volume — about 10 mins. Don’t let the water underneath touch the bowl or boil, or the mixture will curdle.
  3. Pour into glasses, sprinkle with grated chocolate. Serve straight away, with biscuits.
