This recipe has been tantalising me for weeks now and having a friend over for dinner last night inspired me to finally put it on the menu.
Crème caramel is a dish I have made many times and to date have never had an issue with the oozy caramel which covers the dessert as it is turned out of its mould. Sadly, my touch with oozy caramel came to an end last night, with a dig into this lovely little pudding revealing a layer of hard toffee which had hardened and did not want to budge.
Thankfully the pudding was still lovely and of course my industrious and sugar hungry teenager still managed to eat his caramel, using the microwave and brute force to prise it out of the ramekin.
I can hardly complain. 574 recipes and only a very small handful which have not turned out as expected.
Not a bad strike rate x
