Instructions

  3. Mix the egg yolks with the mascarpone, and stir in the blueberries.
  4. Spoon the mixture into (6 oz., 180 ml) ramekins, or small, ovenproof dishes. Bake on the middle rack for 15 - 20 minutes, or until semi-firm, and lightly browned (See tip).
  5. Let cool slightly, before serving. This dish can also be prepared in advance and served cold.

Tips

Baking times will vary, depending upon the size of the baking dishes.

If you prefer your dessert a little sweeter, you can add xylitol or erythritol.

You could also add some vanilla, a pinch of salt, and/or lemon zest for more flavor.

Feel free to replace the blueberries with another low-carb berry such as strawberries, or raspberries.

    That looks yummy! I just got blueberries the other day but I don’t have any mascarpone. Told myself I wasn’t shopping till there’s more fridge and freezer space! Any way, would sour cream work instead of mascarpone?

    This was really very nice. I did find that I had to cook it for longer and at higher temperature than the recipe called for, but my oven is not the hottest and I had doubled the recipe and put it in one dish. I also added some zest of lemon as suggested in the recipe Tips section and would recommend doing that, made it extra special.
