1 tablespoon of maple syrup, or your choice of sweetener
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 teaspoons of caster sugar (for the top)
Place the milk and muesli in a microwavable jug and microwave on 50% for 3 minutes, the 50% is important to stop it overflowing. Meanwhile in a separate bowl beat the egg, maple syrup and vanilla together until well incorporated. I use a stick blender.
Pour the eggy mixture into the muesli mix and mix well then divide the mix between 2 ramekins, and microwave on 50% for a further 3 minutes. Once it is cooked, do not stir or you will get scrambled Bircher - which tastes fine but is a weird texture!
Leave to cool and place in the fridge to completely. Remove from the fridge and sprinkle each ramekin with the caster sugar and heat with a blow torch until the sugar melts and slightly burns. You can do this in an oven on grill setting but it is very hard to control. A blow torch (I got mine from a hardware store) will help you get an even burnt sugar.
Top with yoghurt and your choice of fruit.
Enjoy, it is absolutely delicious!
