Bake Along #22- Creme Brulee

Could not recall when is the last time I tasted creme brulee, but this is my first time baking this custard :D Smooth and melts in the mouth. But is fattening therefore I only bake both flavours, vanilla & chocolate, in small portion. After adjusting the original recipe, I used up only 1 pack 200ml cream for 2 small ramekins & 1 medium ramekins size creme brulee.

Servings just nice for our family :D

I liked the sweet crunchy caramlised layer though....

Hubby prefers the uncaramelised one :D

Your chocolate creme brulee looks delicious. Eating the creme custard without the brulee seems yummy enough.

Your creme brulee looks delicious, especially the chocolate version! I actually like mine caramelize, the crunchy, sticky caramel contrasts the silky texture of the brulee very well.
