Marbling heaven (Tocino de cielo)

6 egg yolks
250 grs. of white caster sugar
125 ml. water
liquid caramel

For starting, add the liquid caramel at the base of a square glass pan.

In a saucepan, place the water and caster sugar to make a syrup. Cook for about 15 minutes over low heat until it forms threads. Let it cool 2 minutes.

Preheat the oven up to 170ºC

Beat the egg yolks. Once the syrup is lukewarm, add to the egg at the same time that you stir with a whisk. NOTE THAT: if the egg yolks curdle the mixture should be strained in a sieve. 

Once it is ready, pour the mixture in the caramelized square glass pan. Cook in an oven bain-mary 35 - 45 minutes. 

Let it cool before taking out from the pan. You can do it turning up side down in a plate. Cut squares or circles with a plating ring. 

Tips_ It can be served with cream and strawberries.
