       Yield: 8 servings
     600 ml Thickened cream (2 cartons)
     1/2 c  Roasted coffee beans
       6    Egg yolks
     1/4 c  Castor sugar
       2 ts Tia Maria or Kahlua
       2 tb Slivered almonds
     1/4 c  Sugar
       1 tb Water
   Pour cream into saucepan, bring to the boil, add coffee beans, reduce heat.
   Simmer gently 3 minutes, remove from heat, stand for 30 minutes, strain.
   Whisk egg yolks, sugar and Tia Maria in a bowl,  whisk in coffee-flavoured
   cream.   Pour mixture into individual ovenproof dishes (1/3 cup capacity).
     Place dishes into a lamington pan**  Pour enough hot water into the pan
   to come half way up the side of the dishes. Cover with foil or lids, bake
   in slow oven for about 20 minutes or until mixture is just set. Cool,
   refrigerate before serving.
   PRALINE: Place almonds into a saucepan, stir constantly over heat until
   lightly browned, spread evenly onto a lightly greased oven tray. Combine
   sugar and water in same pan, stir constantly over heat without boiling
   until sugar is dissolved. Boil rapidly without stirring until mixture turns
   golden brown. Remove from heat, allow bubbles to subside, pour over
   almonds, chop roughly when set.
   Decorate pots de creme with extra whipped cream and praline.
   (**  A lamington dish is a wide shallow metal dish for baking)
