Buy Ingredients


Place the sugar in the mold, sprinkle with water and caramelize over a hot flame. Coat the walls of the mold with the caramel.

Beat the eggs with the sugar, add the very finely grated cheese and the cream. Beat together well and pour into the mold. Place in a dish of hot water and bake in a moderate oven for 30-40 minutes until, when a needle is inserted in the center, it comes out clean.

When cold, turn out and decorate with the walnut halves.
