Creme Caramel


for the caramel

  • 125g caster sugar
  • 50 ml water

for the creme

  • 600ml whole milk
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs

Pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees. Heat 200ml of the milk and add the sliced-open vanilla pod. Boil for 10 minutes.

Leave to cool.

Place 125g of sugar together with the 50ml of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and keep boiling until dark golden brown in colour (over 10 minutes or so).

Quickly plunge bottom of the saucepan in cold water, then quickly distribute amongst the 6 ramekins. Swivel around to cover the base of each ramekin.

Whisk the eggs with 3 tbsp sugar, beat in all of the milk. Divide between ramekins.

Fill roasting tin half with boiling water and put the ramekins into it - you want the water to reach half way up the ramekins. Put into the oven for 45 minutes.

Cover and chill overnight.

Turn out before serving.
