e cooks: crème brûlée

13 April 2014

Crème Brûlée is E's favourite dessert of all time. So it was quite a nerve-wracking day, when he decided to tackle it himself.














Although he thought it was a semi-fail (it wasn't as well-baked as he had wanted), I thought it was delicious. The vanilla pods really made a difference and made the flavour pop, and I prefer mine softer rather than too solid/jelly like so it was ok by me!

He promises to fine-tune it and get it perfect next time. Although I have no idea when that will be, since he has a "to cook" list the size of his (long) arm right now...

You can also look to Ice Pandora's post on her crème brûlée for inspiration, I loved her take on it.

  5. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to make creme brulee simply because my kitchen is so sparse. I don't even have a blender much less a torch. Guess that means I just need to stop by y'alls house sometime! :)
