1. Fry a few tablespoons of buckwheat in a dry frying pan until it starts to crackle and pour it into the cream. You can mix the cream with milk to make it more economical and less fatty. The buckwheat will heat the cream and give off its flavor, leave it there for 30 minutes. You don't need to leave it for a long time, because it will taste more like milky buckwheat porridge.

2. Mash the yolks with the sugar with a whisk, put the buckwheat on a sieve, and add the cream to the yolks and mix. Pour into serving dishes.

5. Shake the plate lightly to check for doneness - it is important that the center is not runny but moves like jelly. We do this at the end of cooking in the oven, and add a little time if necessary. It all depends on the oven and the number of products you are cooking.
