Recipe: Baked Chocolate Custard
All you need:
¼ cup sugar
2 cups whole milk
Pinch of salt
½ cup Hershey chocolate syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons brewed coffee
All you need to do:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Put the custard cups or ramekins into a deep dish baking dish and set aside.
In a tea kettle, bring about 4 cups of water to a boil (for the water bath)… when water boils turn off the heat and leave the kettle until needed.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the milk, eggs, vanilla, chocolate syrup, coffee, sugar and salt.
Pour milk mixture into custard cups.
Place the baking dish with the custard cups into the preheated oven.
Carefully pour the hot water from the kettle into the baking dish so the water comes to about ½ to 2/3 of the custard cups.
Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the custard is set (a knife inserted into the center should come out clean).
Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Makes 4-6 servings depending on the size of the custard cups.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with a dollop of Mocha Whipped Cream on top.

The month of July starts with the taste of food festivals for the summer solstice. Food Fests remind everyone to eat a lot and with gusto during the summer and store energy for the long, cold winter months. In July, anyone can have a Taste of Anything, Anywhere one goes...including a Taste of Cuban cuisine, not only in Cuba, of course... Ethnic cooking is everywhere in the USA, but authentic Cuban cuisine lives at the Centro Cultural Cubano de Nueva York. The 12th Annual Congress of the Centro Cultural Cubano de Nueva York takes place on Sunday, July 14 from 9 am to 7 pm at the International Culinary Center of Manhattan, 462 Broadway (corner of Grand St.), New York City. Early morning, I was reading about My Big Fat Cuban Family by Marta Darby who is going to be present on Sunday, July 14th for a Live Cooking Demo, while she makes her famous "Homemade Pastelitos de Guayaba", an original recipe for Guava Pastries prepared easily at home. On this great day for Cuban cooking, there is a special Cuban Foodie eat-all-you-can day at Victor's Café which includes a Cuban breakfast, lunch, "merienda", beverages, café cubano, cocktails, and much more... Authentic Cuban cooking in my family is a credit to my Cuban Grandmothers, Mother, and Father who have passed on the Cuban cuisine tradition to everyone in our family. Whenever Cuban food is served, there is always a Conga-line queued eager to taste favorite dishes, appetizers, croquetas, sandwich cubano, arroz con pollo, lechón asado, arroz blanco, frijoles negros, moros y cristianos, yuca al mojo, and anything else your stomach desires to eat. The cooking theme at the 12th Annual Congress of the Centro Cultural Cubano this year is "Cuban Cuisine: del casabe al mojito". This is an unforgettable Cuban epicurean food experience that your palate will never regret.
