Sassy Mama French family favourites: Crème caramel

Post Category - EatEat - Post Category - Eating InEating In

Crème caramel is one of the most traditional French desserts. A delicious mix of milk, sugar and eggs, it is universally loved by kids and adults alike! Here, our French foodie Laurent Brouard of Chez Patrick shares the secrets of this classic in this surprisingly simple recipe.

Crème caramel
Serves 8
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes


Ingredients
For the caramel:
250g of white caster sugar
5 centiliters of water

For the custard:
250g of sugar
8 whole eggs
One vanilla pod
One litre of full-fat milk

Method

  • To prepare the caramel, boil the water and sugar together in a saucepan on a medium heat until light brown. Then pour the caramel into 8 individual ramekins or mini soufflé dishes, and leave to set.
  • Prepare the custard by combining the whole eggs with the sugar, and beating until your mixture is white and foamy. Then, split your vanilla pod lengthwise, scrape out the beans, and add this to the egg and sugar mixture. Finally, pour in the milk while mixing continuously.
  • Once the caramel in the ramekins is set, pour your custard mix on top, before placing the dishes in a large oven-proof tray, half-filled with water.
  • Bake in a 150°c oven for 45 minutes.
  • Once baked, allow to cool before transferring to the fridge and chilling for a minimum of 2 hours.

You can eat this straight from the ramekin (and kids won’t want to wait!), but for a fancier presentation, you can run a knife along the edges of the ramekins, turn out the crème caramels and present them on individual plates, garnished with fresh fruit.

Et voilà! Bon appétit!

What are your weekend plans with the kiddos? Mine are usually spent trying to find outdoor activities for my boys to expend their energy. One of our favourites is spending time by the sea, in fact most of our family holidays are in tropical locations by the beach. My boys have never seen snow so I’ve been thinking I should take them somewhere cold for a change! Any ideas where? Don't forget to check IG stories to see what I am up to tonight!

What’s your personal mama style? Having been part of a fashion business over the last 10 years (alongside my mum and sister) at @luxe_fashion_boutique, I have seen so many trends come and fade away. I love classic and timeless maxi dresses which defines my style and personality. I also prefer to invest in quality pieces that will last the test of time. ⠀
