Crème caramel

This is the story of a truly magnificent recipe I found and have fallen in love with.
Quite a while ago, I had planned on making some soup and bought a carton of single cream with me back home. Somehow, taking out the blender to make the soup seemed like a bigger task than boiling milk and cream and placing ramekins full into the oven.

I have never been a huge fan of creme caramels and I know it is a "crime" for me to judge these beautiful things after just trying a rather grim shop-bought one.

Surprisingly, these were not as hard to make as I expected! The egg did not curdle and everything went smoothly, with the kitchen smelling delicious from the warm custard. A win-win I'd say!

I had made crème brulees quite a while ago and although both were a little similar, I think these crème caramels were much much easier to handle in terms of the method and how easily it was to make it look and taste like the best homemade one.

I have found the recipe here, from the good 'ole bbc website and can I just say, it is an absolutely brilliant one. (I am really starting to wonder how many adjectives I have used in this post now!)

I served these with biscotti biscuits (shop bought - don't hate!) and if you would like to make your own, I have written a post on it some time back! They go great together and I love to dip them in the runny caramel - heaven. Or, you could just listen to the expert advice on the original recipe and crack on on making orange blossom biscuits with it.

There really are no excuses for these, most of the ingredients are probably sitting in your pantry now! This will definitely be on the cycle of repeat. Have a good week everyone!
