Beat the egg yolks and castor sugar together until thick and pale.
Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into the cream mixture and return to the stove to re-heat. Once re-heated, pour the hot cream mix over the egg yolks and sugar and stir until all the sugar has dissolved.
Divide the custard between 2 coffee cups & bake in a water bath for 35 – 40 minutes or until the custards are still a little wobbly. Remove for the oven and cool.
When the custards have cooled, put them in the fridge to chill.
Make the coffee and allow to cool slightly, but still warm enough to dissolve the gelatine. Pour a little cold water over the gelatine until it softens. Once soft, squeeze out the excess water and add to the tepid coffee and stir to dissolve. Let the coffee gelatine mixture cool and then gently pour the coffee mixture over the chilled custards and return to the fridge to set for at least an hour. (If you have a real sweet tooth you could add sugar to the coffee, however the custard already has sugar, so the dish is sweet already.)
If there is any crèma or froth on the top of the jelly, hold back the froth, because you want the jelly to ‘shine’.
It’s preferable to make the dessert up to the stage of adding the jelly the day before and then add the jelly on the day you plan to eat them.
Top with some whipped cream and with fresh raspberries spilling over the top on one side.
