Creme Caramel

Creme caramel is a family favourite. I make this a couple times a month for my husband. He loves it. Especially once I started using vanilla seeds instead of vanilla essence. Although both are just as delicious, the use of vanilla seeds was beautiful and it elevated the dish to a whole other level. 

I will just leave this recipe here for you to try and you can tell me yourself. Happy Baking everyone.

1/3 cup milk 

1/2 cup heavy cream 

1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk 

1/2 teaspoon vanilla/ seeds of half a vanilla pod


  1. Place the sugar and water in a pan on a medium heat without stirring until the sugar turns an amber colour. 

  2. Carefully pour the caramel into 1 700 ml ceramic dish or between 2 smaller 300 ml dishes.

  4. Strain the mixture over the cooled caramel. 

  5. To steam the caramel, place a large pan on the stove. Add a stand and cover the creme caramel dish with foil to stop water from falling into it.
