Creme Caramel

Makes 12 mini cups

This European originated dessert is found everywhere from the shelf’s of 24 hours run mini marts to the high end restaurant. It seems that the whole world had fallen in love with Creme Caramel..uuhh yeah! Well, it might be that it is easy to make, can hold for long and that it is smooth and tasty.

In most cases that I had encounter before, when it comes to dessert, the main choice was creme caramel or fresh/canned fruits, I usually choose the creme caramel because fresh fruits is always abundant at home. I like the one that is slightly burnt in the oven. Those types are usually stronger in taste. My mothers’ creme caramel is tasty and smooth. She likes to give it away as a gift.

There is a lot of recipes around , from the very plain until the very complicated. This recipe is from my mom, I think this taste just like the one from my favorite restaurant. So give it a try!
