Hot Chocolate
For cake and hot chocolate lovers, Vienna is the place to visit.I spent a weekend there a few years ago with my friend Maren, and we drank more hot chocolate in 48 hours than I ever dreamed possible. My favourite café, Demel, serves the classic Austrian hot chocolate and this is my interpretation of that luxurious drink.

  • Step 1

    Place the milk and cream in a saucepan with the chopped chocolate and sugar. Place over low heat and whisk until the chocolate has melted and the drink is thick and syrupy.

  • Step 2

    Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes, then beat in the whisked egg yolk to thicken the hot chocolate.
    Return to the heat, whisking all the time, until hot. Pass through a sieve/strainer and then pour into two cups and serve straight away.
