Separate the whites from the yolks and set the whites aside in the fridge with a pinch of salt.
In a bowl, mix the yolks with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
In a saucepan, heat the milk with vanilla. Pour in 1/3 of the yolks, whisking. Then pour everything into the pan with the remaining 2/3 of milk and thicken over low heat, stirring constantly in an 8. Set aside and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Beat the egg whites until stiff.
Melt the chocolate, but set aside as many squares as cakes (or even 2 per cake, depending on their size) with the butter and cream in the microwave for 45 secs at full power, stirring every 15 seconds and leave to cool.
In a mixing bowl, mix the coarsely chopped nuts, flour and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
Add the chocolate and whites gently.
Preheat the oven (210 ° C).
Pour into cake moulds, press the chocolate squares reserved previously into the centre of each cake and bake for 12 mins.
Leave to cool before serving with custard.
