  • 1 can Guinness Draught
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 7 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 8 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
  1. Pour the Guinness into a large bowl and wait a few minutes for the foam to subside.
  2. Mix half of the Guinness and 2 1/4 cups of heavy cream in a large sauce pan, heat over medium until bubbles just start to form, remove from heat, mix in the chocolate and let it melt.
  3. Mix the eggs and 1 cup of sugar in a large bowl and slowly mix in the Guinness mixture.
  4. Pour the mixture back into the sauce pan and cook over low heat until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 15 minutes.
  5. Give the mixture 1 minute on high in the blender, run it through a fine mesh sieve, divide between glasses leaving 1 inch of space, cover in plastic and let chill in the fridge to set.
  6. Meanwhile, simmer the remaining Guinness and sugar over medium heat until it has reduced to about 1 tablespoon, about 15-20 minutes, and let cool.
  7. Beat the remaining cream until soft peaks are form, mix in the Guinness syrup and place on top of the Guinness pudding in the glasses.
