Homemade Cream Caramel

It is always good to have a simple dessert after your meal. Here’s a super easy cream caramel recipe for you!

For a typical cream caramel, we usually pour the caramel into the container first, and then the cream, but I like adding the caramel over the cream after it is set. It makes life so much easier because you won’t need to flip it over lol It’s your choice!

Ingredients:

Milk – 200ml

  4. Add 2. into the bowl little by little while whisking. (make sure 2. is not too hot since it will cook the eggs)
  5. Strain 3. in a different bowl (very important step to make it velvety. You may do it 2 or 3 times if necessary)
  6. Pour the liquid into a heat resistance ramekin
  7. Place the ramekins into a baking container or any heat resistant container that is deep enough to pour hot water into it. (like this↓)IMG_0556.jpg
  8. Fill the container with hot water (not boiling water ) up to 3 quarters of the ramekins. Cover the container with aluminum foil. This is also a very important step to steam it in the oven.
  9. Bake for about 30 mins until the liquid is set.
  10. Take the ramekins out and leave it for a while until it cools down. (Be very careful.) Then cover it with aluminum foil again and leave it in the fridge for at leat 2 hours.
  11. Take it out, pour caramel on top and ready to go!!
