    This came out wonderfully! A big hit at a party. Beautiful presentation. Friends likened it to eating a truffle, it was so rich! I only messed up by leaving the cooked egg on top of the hot water bath while I whipped the cream, and they continued to cook. Wasn't a big deal - but I'll probably whip the cream before cooking the eggs next time. Used a 9 1/2 inch circle pan, and had enough batter to bake a mini-cake to leave at home.
