Before using your Cuisinart® Combo Steam + Convection Oven for the first
time, remove any dust from shipping by wiping the base, cover and controls
with a damp cloth.
Be sure to thoroughly clean all accessories before first use. The oven rack,
baking pan, broiling rack and crumb tray are dishwasher safe. Rinse water
reservoir in hot, sudsy water. Be sure to thoroughly clean all accessories
before each use.
SPECIAL CORDSET INSTRUCTIONS
A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use.
If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension
cord must be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance,
and the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or tabletop where it can be tripped over unintentionally or
pulled on by children.
Before using your Cuisinart® Combo Steam + Convection Oven, make sure
it is two to four inches (5 cm -10 cm) away from the wall or from any items
on the countertop. Do not use on heat-sensitive surfaces. DO NOT STORE
ITEMS ON TOP OF THE OVEN. IF YOU DO, REMOVE THEM BEFORE YOU
TURN YOUR OVEN ON. THE EXTERIOR WALLS GET VERY HOT WHEN IN
USE. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
NOTICE
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a
safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact
a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

functions. Remove reservoir by lifting vertically, using the integrated handle.
Invert and remove reservoir cap and fill. Replace cap and return reservoir
so that it is properly seated in its original position.
For convenience, we recommend removing the crumb tray when using any
of the steam functions, although it is not required.
Natural juices tend to accumulate in the baking pan when cooking with
steam functions. Should the baking pan be full of liquid after cooking, allow
to cool and then carefully remove.
To change function: Press and hold the program button until set
temperature starts flashing. Press program button in again. Time will start
flashing. Press program button again. Current function icon will start
flashing. Use program dial to scroll to desired function, and press program
button to set.
NOTE: Once you change to another function, temperature and time will go
to default settings for that function. Follow instructions above to select new
temperature and time, if desired.
Toast
Use provided crumb tray when making toast.
Toast should be centered on the oven rack for most even results.
Convection Bake
Convection Bake is best used for most baked goods like cakes, cookies and
pastries.
Rotating baking pan halfway through cooking time is recommended for even
baking.
Steam + Bake
The combination of bake and steam means crispy yet juicy results every
time in less time. The Bake Steam function also provides even, moist heat
that is a benefit for many types of foods, from perfect custards to effortless
braised dishes.
For an exceptional roast chicken we recommend using high heat, 450°F
(230°C), for best results. Little to no oil is necessary when roasting with
steam.
8
Cooking with the bake steam function may shorten conventional roasting/
baking times. If using a recipe meant for a traditional oven begin checking
for doneness at least 10 minutes before recommended time.
The lowest temperature [100°F (40°C)] on the Steam function is ideal for
bread proofing. Allow dough to complete at least one rise at room
temperature. Shape dough and place on the baking pan lined with
parchment and then put directly in the oven in the lower rack position. Set in
oven for a minimum of 20 minutes and up to ½ hour on 100°F (40°C) to
proof. Once time elapses, switch oven to Bread function and set
temperature and time, indicated by recipe.
The Bake Steam function allows you to create tender and browned braised
dishes. Place less-tender cuts of meat like short ribs, shanks, cubes of
shoulder or leg, with minimal or no liquid directly on the baking tray. Start
cooking on Bake Steam at a medium temperature and then reduce
temperature after one hour with entire cooking time set for 2 hours (see rib
recipe on page 13 as a guide). Minimal to no liquid is used in steam-baked,
braised dishes because natural juices are drawn out from the meat,
providing the perfect braising liquid.
Some baked goods can be steam/baked or steamed and then convection
baked, such as pretzels and bagels.
The Steam function can also work to clean the interior of your steam oven.
Run oven on default setting to [210˚ F (99°C) for 30 minutes] to loosen
grease or food residue. Once cycle is complete, wipe the interior clean with
a cloth.
The Bake Steam function allows you to bake custard-style dishes (like crème
brûlée, bread pudding and pot de crème) without a water bath. Cover item
to be baked and set oven on Bake Steam at a low temperature [for custards
set to 225°F (110°C). For heartier custard dishes like bread pudding set
temperature to 325/350°F (160°C/180°C)]. Cooking times are generally 40
to 50 minutes.
Steam + Broil
For your convenience we have two different rack positions for Broil/Broil
Steam, refer to page 5 for reference.
Roast vegetables like peppers and tomatoes on the Bake Steam function.
Place vegetables with a little to no oil directly on baking tray in the lower
or middle rack position. Most vegetables will be nicely roasted in about
30 minutes at a minimum of 400°F (200°C).
The lower broil position is best suited for thicker foods like steaks, chops
and larger fish fillets as well as top browning of dishes like nachos and
casseroles.
Bake Steam keeps leftovers moist. When reheating, put leftovers in the
middle rack position uncovered and set oven to 250°F (120°C) for about
20 minutes.
When positioning foods to broil make sure they are not touching the heating
elements as they can burn very easily.
The upper broil position is for thin foods like smaller seafood and thin fillets.
We recommend leaving the oven door slightly ajar when broiling.
Steam
Broil Steam is great for steam roasting foods like seafood, fish, chicken
parts and vegetables.
The highest temperature [210°F (99°C)] on the Steam function should be
used for all traditional steaming tasks like vegetables, seafood and other
proteins. See Steam Cooking Chart page 10 for steaming suggestions and
times.
Super Steam
Steam plus the additional heat of the bottom element is the ideal setting for
perfect rice. The ratio we use for white rice to water is 2 cups (500 ml) to
2¼ cups (550 ml). Simply combine rice and water in an ovenproof dish and
cover. Put in oven with the rack in the lower position set to Super Steam at
300˚F (150°C). White rice takes about 25 to 30 minutes from start to finish.
Brown rice takes about 40 minutes using 2½ cups (625 ml) water for 2 cups
For all vegetable/protein steaming we recommend placing item to be
steamed on the broiling/steaming rack fitted into the baking pan.
When steaming seafood we recommend placing a small amount of wine or
other aromatic liquid on the bottom of the baking pan to infuse flavour.

fluffing and serving.
Steam function, 210˚F (99°C), middle rack position*, food on broiling/steaming rack and
baking pan.
Super Steam also does a great job with steam-roasted vegetables. Put
vegetables in the lower or middle rack position and set up to 400°F (200°C)
for at least 20 minutes.
Bread
The Bread function simulates a professional bread oven on your counter.
An initial burst of steam followed by convection baking yields professional
results every time with crispy crusts and perfectly risen interiors.
Prepare any bread recipe as instructed. Prior to baking, we highly
recommend using the Steam function set to 100°F (40°C) for the final
proofing step (see section on Steam for tips).

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Decalcification
Always allow the oven to cool completely before cleaning.
Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium deposits that form over time.
These deposits can cause damage to the machine. For best performance
from your Combo Steam + Convection Oven, decalcify annually for average
use and twice a year for heavy use.
1. Always unplug the oven from the electrical outlet.
2. When cleaning the exterior, do not use abrasive cleansers, as they will
damage the finish. Simply wipe the exterior with a clean damp cloth and
dry thoroughly.
To decalcify:
Remove the reservoir from the unit and empty it completely. Set oven to the
Steam function at 210˚F (99°C) for 30 minutes. Press the Start/Cancel button
and let the oven run until the "Add water" alert sounds.
3. To clean the interior walls, you can first loosen food debris by running the
Steam cycle function. Follow the Operating Instructions, using the Steam
function default [30 minutes at 210˚F (99°C)]. Once cycle is complete wipe
interior with a cloth or sponge. DO NOT use harsh abrasives or corrosive
products, which could damage the oven wall surface.
While the unit is running, add 1 cup (250 ml) of water and 1 cup (250 ml) of
distilled white vinegar to the reservoir. When the “Add water” alert sounds,
return reservoir to the unit. Wait 30 seconds and press the program button
to reset the Steam function at 210˚F (99°C) for 75 minutes. Press the Start/
Cancel button and let the oven run until the "Add water" alert sounds.
4. To remove excess liquid, slide out the drip tray and discard contents.
Wipe clean or place in top rack of dishwasher. To remove baked-on
grease, soak the tray in hot sudsy water or use nonabrasive cleaners.
Never operate the oven without the drip tray in place.
5. The oven rack, baking pan, broiling rack, and crumb tray are dishwasher
safe. If heavily soiled, soak in hot sudsy water or use a nylon scouring
pad or nylon brush.
Remove the reservoir and rinse out with fresh clean water. Fill the reservoir
halfway with clean water. Return the reservoir to the unit. Wait 30 seconds
and press the program button. Oven will resume from the point at which the
cycle was interrupted. Let the oven run until the "Add water" alert sounds or
the timer runs out.
6. Rinse water reservoir in hot, sudsy water. Dry well.
TROUBLESHOOTING
7. Never wrap the cord around the outside of the oven. Use the cord storage
tabs on the back of the oven.
Q: Can you switch functions during cooking?
A: Yes. See page 8 for instructions.
8. Any other servicing should be performed by an authorized service
representative.
Q: Why is my unit beeping?
A: Steam reservoir is empty. Remove and refill with water, then replace.
See page 7 for instructions.
Note: If oven is not in use for more than 1 month, fill water reservoir and
run oven on Steam function at 210˚F (99°C) for 60 minutes before using.
Q: Why is water is leaking onto the counter.
A: Drip tray is not in place, or it may be full. Always check before each use
and empty after use.

13
nonstick cooking spray
large eggs
cup (250 ml) whole milk
cup (250 ml) heavy cream
teaspoon (5 ml) pure vanilla extract
cup (75 ml) pure maple syrup
teaspoons (10 ml) ground cinnamon
teaspoon (5 ml) ground nutmeg
teaspoon (1 ml) kosher salt
loaf challah bread [1 pound (500 g)]
tablespoons (30 ml) packed light brown sugar
tablespoons (30 ml) unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch
(1.25 cm) pieces
1.
Lightly coat a 9-inch (22.8 cm) square pan with nonstick cooking spray;
reserve.
2.
Put the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, syrup, spices and salt into a medium
bowl. Whisk to completely combine.
3.
Using a serrated knife, slice the challah bread into strips that fit the length of
the baking pan. Tightly fit half of the bread strips into the bottom of the pan
and cover with half of the egg mixture. Sprinkle the top with 1 tablespoon
(15 ml) of the brown sugar.
4.
Repeat with the remaining bread, laying the strips in the opposite direction
of the first layer. Pour the remaining egg mixture over the top and dot with
remaining brown sugar. Cover tightly with foil and chill in the refrigerator for
at least 2 hours or overnight.
5.
Remove the pan from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature. Dot
the top of the strata with the butter and loosely cover with aluminum foil.
6.
Put the pan in the oven with the rack in the lower rack position. Set the
oven to Bake Steam at 350°F (180°C) for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and
switch the unit to Broil at 500°F (260°C) for 5 minutes, or until the top is
browned and slightly crusty and the internal temperature of the strata is
160°F (71°C).
7.
Remove and serve immediately.
3
2
tablespoons (45 ml) fresh ricotta, strained of any excess water
large basil leaves
1.
Toss the onion with the garlic, thyme, olive oil and ½ teaspoon (2 ml) of the
salt in a medium mixing bowl. Put on the baking pan lined with parchment
paper and put in the oven with the rack in the middle rack position. Set the
oven to Super Steam at 300°F (150°C) for 30 minutes.
2.
While the onion is cooking, toss the tomatoes in the same bowl with
¼ teaspoon (1 ml) of salt. Remove and reserve onion mixture once finished.
Replace the parchment and put the tomatoes on the pan and then into the
oven. Set to Bake Steam at 400°F (200°C) for 5 minutes.
3.
Roll out the sheet of pastry on a well-floured surface and cut out a
9 x 9-inch (22.8 x 22.8 cm) square. Cut four 1-inch (2.5 cm) wide strips out
of the pastry for a border around the square, placing the strips directly on
top of the pastry square. Using the tines of a fork, prick the surface of the
tart shell all over, in the center and on the borders. Brush the egg wash all
over the tart shell.
4.
Put the tart shell on the cleaned baking pan lined with parchment and put
in the oven with the rack in the lower rack position. Set to Convection Bake
at 400°F (200°C) for 30 minutes. Keep an eye on the shell to make sure the
surface does not get too dark. Should it get too dark before time expires,
cover with aluminum foil.
5.
Once shell is baked and cools slightly, scatter the ¼ cup (60 ml) of
shredded cheese along the bottom of the tart shell. Put ½ tablespoon (7 ml)
dollops of the ricotta on top of the cheese evenly across the tart; sprinkle
with half of the remaining salt. Top evenly with the onion mixture and then
the tomatoes, and finally the remaining cheese and salt. Cover the border
of the tart with aluminum foil and put back in the oven with the rack in the
middle rack position. Set oven to Broil at 500°F (260 °C) for 10 minutes,
until the cheese on top is melted and golden brown.
6.
Once tart is finished tear the basil leaves and scatter on top of the tart
before serving.

Chermoula Shrimp
chunkier pesto-like sauce, or more if you want it thinner. Taste and adjust
the seasonings to your liking. Cover and reserve to allow flavors to meld.
A North African–style pesto, this is a perfect accompaniment for most seafood,
especially shrimp and salmon, but is also delicious tossed with
steamed or roasted potatoes.

Put the shrimp, oil, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl and toss to combine.
Divide the shrimp among 5 skewers and place the skewers on top of the

on the rack and leave the oven door slightly open. Set to Broil for
10 minutes, or until the shrimp are fully opaque.

now be used as a filling for tamales (page 11), tacos, burritos or served over rice
with vegetables. Pair with our Red Chile Sauce (recipe follows) for extra flavour.
Note: If using as filling for tamales we recommend mixing in 1 cup (250 ml)
of red chile sauce. Follow tamale instructions and masa dough recipe on
pages 11-12.

This recipe does require a few steps but the final results are well worth the
effort. Depending on the size of the corn husks, you may be able to fill the
tamales with more or less than recommended; it will become easier
to gauge as you fill them.
tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
shallots, peeled and sliced
garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
sprigs thyme
teaspoon (2 ml) kosher salt
teaspoon (1 ml) freshly ground black pepper
small fennel bulb, sliced
small red potatoes
ears corn, husked and cut into 2-inch (5.0 cm) pieces
pound (375 g) littleneck clams (about 6), scrubbed
pound (250 g) mussels (about 8), scrubbed and de-bearded
lobster tails
Active Time: 2 hours Total Time: 5 hours
Makes about 24 tamales
Green Chile Filling:
1½
pounds (750 g) poblano peppers (about 8), stems trimmed
2
tablespoons (30 ml) vegetable oil
1
medium onion, peeled and finely chopped
1
jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
4
garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
20
2
tablespoons (30 ml) plus 1 teaspoon (5 ml) unbleached,
all-purpose flour
2
cups (500 ml) water or low-sodium chicken broth
2
pounds (1 kg) whole chicken legs (about 4 legs), roasted, meat
removed, shredded*
2
cans [4.5 ounces (130 g) each] diced green chiles
½
teaspoon (2 ml) kosher salt
24
corn husks
Masa Dough:
5
cups (1.25 L) masa harina
1
tablespoon (15 ml) plus 1 teaspoon (5 ml) baking powder
2½
teaspoons (13 ml) kosher salt
3¾
cups (852 ml) water
1¼
cups (300 ml) vegetable oil
1.
Arrange the poblano peppers in a single layer on the baking pan. Put the
pan in the oven with the rack in the middle rack position. Set to Bake Steam
at 425°F (220°C). Cook for 30 minutes until charred, flipping the peppers
halfway through cooking. Remove peppers to a bowl and cover tightly with
plastic wrap.
2.
Once cool enough to handle, peel, seed, and roughly chop the peppers. Set
aside.
3.
In a medium pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion,
jalapeño, and garlic and sauté until softened and lightly golden. Whisk in the
flour and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the water or broth and bring to
a boil. Reduce heat to medium and add the chicken, poblano peppers and
canned chiles. Simmer for about 30 to 45 minutes until filling is thickened
and still moist but not soupy.
4.
While the filling is cooking, put husks in a large bowl and pour over enough
boiling water to cover. Use an inverted plate or heavy lid to keep the husks
submerged for at least 1 hour.
5.
Remove chile from heat and allow to cool slightly. (It will thicken slightly as
it sits.)
6.
Prepare the masa dough. In a large bowl, stir together the masa, baking
powder, and salt. Slowly add the water, using a wooden spoon or a clean
hand to incorporate the liquid well. Add the vegetable oil last and mix
thoroughly until a dough is formed. Refrigerate until ready to use.
7.
Assemble the tamales. Working with one husk at a time, remove from water
and shake off any excess. Lay the husk flat on a work surface with the
larger end facing you. Spread about ¼ cup (60 ml) of masa dough onto the
husk, covering 2⁄3 of the husk toward the wider end.
8.
Put about 2 to 4 tablespoons (30 to 60 ml) of filling on top of the masa,
depending on the size of the husk. Fold the sides of the husk in over the
filling and the husk’s narrow end underneath the tamale to secure closed.
Repeat until all tamales have been filled.
9.
Arrange the tamales on the baking pan, with the open ends upward,
stacking against each other in a slightly slanted position. Put in the oven
with the rack in the lower rack position and set the oven to Steam at 210°F
(98.8°C) for 2 hours. The masa should be set and the husk should peel
easily away from it.
10. Serve immediately.
*To prepare the chicken in the oven, coat raw chicken legs with ½ teaspoon
(2 ml) each salt and pepper and put in the baking pan with the rack in the
middle rack position. Set to Bake Steam at 325°F (160°C) for 60 minutes.
Remove, cool, and shred the meat.

recipe Asian-Style Pork Ribs, cooled
teaspoon (5 ml) active dry yeast
cup (60 ml) granulated sugar, divided
cups (325 ml) warm water [105–110°F (40.5°C–43.3°C)], divided
cups (750 ml) unbleached, all-purpose flour, plus more as needed
teaspoon (1 ml) baking soda
tablespoon (15 ml) canola oil
1. Remove meat from ribs and shred well. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
If desired, reserve any juices from the ribs after baking to moisten meat
before filling.
2. Mix yeast with a pinch of the sugar and stir into 1⁄3 cup (75 ml) of the warm
water. Let stand 5 minutes until foamy.
3. In a large stainless steel bowl combine the flour, remaining sugar and the
baking soda. Stir to mix and make a small well in the center.
4. Add the remaining water to the yeast mixture and slowly pour it into the
flour, using one hand to pour while the other mixes the dough. If the dough
appears too wet, add more flour, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time until the
dough starts to come together. Add the oil and use your hands to work the
dough until well combined.
Remove the ribs from the oven and serve.

Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta
5. Transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and knead the dough by hand
for about 10 minutes until it is smooth and elastic. Shape the dough into a
ball and cover with a dampened kitchen towel. Let the dough rest at room
temperature for 1 hour.
The perfect side dish to any meal; the saltiness of the pancetta complements
the earthiness of the sprouts and a finish of red wine vinegar provides
an unexpected but welcome tang.
6. Meanwhile, line the baking pan with a piece of parchment and take pork out
of the refrigerator. Lay a large piece of wax paper on the counter where you
will be filling the buns.

8. Working with one piece of dough at a time and keeping the rest covered
with the damp towel, roll each piece of dough into a very flat round, about 4
to 5 inches (10 to 12.5 cm) in diameter. Fill each dough in the center with 2
heaping tablespoons (30 ml) of the shredded pork. It may seem like a lot but
the dough will stretch as you pull it around the filling. Gather the dough up
and around the filling by pleating along the edges. Pinch the pleats together,
making a little neck on the bun, and twist firmly to seal.
9. Put the bun on the wax paper and cover with another damp towel. Repeat
with remaining dough and filling until all buns have been made.
10. Put half of the buns on the baking tray, keeping the remaining 8 covered.
Put the tray in the oven with the rack in the middle rack position and set to
Steam at 210 °F (98.8°C) for 30 minutes, until dough is cooked through.
Remove the buns and re-line the tray with new parchment and repeat
with remaining buns.

3.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and the paddle, and then replace the
paddle with the dough hook. Start mixing on a low/medium-low speed
and add the salt. Gradually add the cold butter, cube by cube, not adding
more butter until the preceding is fully incorporated. Increase speed to
medium and continue kneading until all the butter has been added. Add
additional flour, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) at a time, if dough is getting too sticky.
The kneading process should take about 15 to 20 minutes – do not rush it!
Dough is done when it is smooth and elastic, and when pulled should not
break apart easily.
4.
Form dough into a ball and put in a clean mixing bowl, cover with plastic
and allow to rest in the refrigerator for 3½ hours. After chilling, let rest at
room temperature for an additional 30 minutes.
5.
Generously butter a 9-inch (22.8 cm) loaf pan. Gently shape dough into a
loaf and put it in the pan. With the rack in the lower rack position, put pan
in oven. Set to Steam at 100°F (40°C) for 25 minutes to proof. Remove from
oven and lightly brush with egg wash. Return to oven and then set to Bread
at 350°F (180°C) for 30 minutes to bake. Bread should be shiny and well
browned at the end of the baking cycle, and the internal temperature should
read 190°F (87.7°C).
6.
Remove bread from the pan and allow to fully cool on a rack before serving.
Soft and buttery, this bread takes some TLC to prepare, but the final results
are well worth it. Perfect when toasted and spread with jam for breakfast, or
sliced and made even more decadent when used for making French toast.

tablespoons (30 ml) warm whole milk [105–110°F (40.5 –43.3C)]
cups (325 ml) bread flour
large eggs, lightly beaten
teaspoon (2 ml) kosher salt
tablespoons (90 ml) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
(store in refrigerator until ready to use)
egg wash [1 large egg and 1 tablespoon (15 ml) water whisked
together]
1.
In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and teaspoon of sugar in the warm milk.
Let stand 5 to 10 minutes, or until mixture is foamy.
2.
Put the flour and the remaining 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of sugar in the bowl
of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix to combine. Once
yeast has proofed, add mixture to the flour/sugar. Mix on a medium-low
speed until completely combined, and then very gradually add the eggs, not
adding more until the previous bit has been absorbed by the flour mixture.
Continue to mix until dough is completely homogenous without any lumps.
You may need to raise the speed to a medium/medium-high at this point.
The dough will be very sticky and glue-like. Allow this to mix for about
10 minutes to allow gluten to develop well. Stop the mixer to scrape down
the sides of the bowl and the paddle as needed to be sure that the dough
is well-mixed and smooth.

Put the flour and salt in the work bowl of a food processor fitted with the
dough or metal chopping blade and process for 10 seconds. With the
machine running, slowly add the proofed yeast mixture through the feed
tube and process until a dough ball forms. Continue processing 45 seconds
to knead the dough. Shape the dough into a smooth ball, put it in a clean
mixing bowl and cover with plastic. Let rise in a warm place until the dough
has doubled in size, about 60 minutes.
3.
Gently punch dough down and then roll into a 16-inch (40 cm) rope. Divide
the dough into 12 equal pieces. Take one piece (keep other pieces covered
loosely with plastic wrap or a damp towel to prevent drying out) and roll into
a very thin rope, about 6 inches (15 cm) long, and shape into a pretzel by
taking the two ends and crossing them over one another, making sure that
the ends hang over the bottom; press firmly to seal. Repeat with remaining
pieces of dough, being sure to keep all shaped pretzels under plastic or a
damp towel.
4.
Line the baking pan with a piece of parchment paper. Put 6 of the shaped
pretzels on the lined pan. Lightly brush the pretzels with the baking soda
wash. Put the pan in the oven with the rack in the middle rack position.

cup (250 ml) whole milk

nonstick cooking spray (or softened butter)
1.
Put the bread cubes and chocolate in a large bowl. Toss to combine;

cup (125 ml) heavy cream
cup (125 ml) whole milk
teaspoon (2 ml) pure vanilla extract
ounces (85 g) semisweet chocolate [about ½ cup (125 ml)
chocolate chips]
teaspoon (1 ml) espresso powder (optional)
large egg yolks
cup (60 ml) granulated sugar
teaspoon (2 ml) kosher salt
1.
Put the cream, milk and vanilla in a small saucepan set over medium-low
heat. Put the chocolate and espresso powder if using, in a heatproof mixing
bowl; reserve. Once cream/milk mixture just comes to a simmer, pour it
over the chocolate. Let the chocolate sit for a few minutes, and then whisk
together (you do not want to whisk when it is too hot, or the chocolate will
be grainy).
2.
Put the egg yolks, sugar and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Using either
a hand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or by hand with a whisk,
mix until very light and thick. Once combined, temper the yolks with the
chocolate/cream mixture by pouring about half of the warm chocolate
mixture into the egg mixture. Gently whisk until fully combined, and then
add the remaining chocolate mixture. Do not over-whisk – you do not want
the mixture to be frothy at this point. Dab the surface with paper towel to
remove any foam.
3.
If the mixture seems a bit grainy, pour through a fine mesh strainer set over
a clean mixing bowl.
4.
Divide mixture evenly among four individual [5 ounces (145 g)] custard cups.
