I sweetened it with maple syrup, which gives it a nutty caramel flavor, and I added a little bit of cinnamon spice to heighten the custard’s warm aroma and taste.

The sound actually excites me even before I have my first taste of the smooth velvet cream. Then that sweet toffee coating melting in my mouth just takes this dessert over the top. This is why it’s my favorite.

Ingredients

2 cups whipping cream

1/2 cup maple syrup

2 large eggs

2 egg yolks

1 tbsp vanilla

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup granulated sugar

Instructions

1) Preheat oven to 325F. In a small saucepan, heat cream and maple syrup over medium heat until small bubbles begin to form around the edges, remove from heat.

2) In a large measuring cup, whisk eggs, egg yolks, vanilla and cinnamon. Slowly whisk in hot cream into the egg mixture until blended.

3) Divide into six 3/4 cup ramekins. Set the custards cups in a shallow pan and place in oven. Pour enough hot water into the pan to cover halfway up the sides of the ramekins.

4) Bake for about 30 minutes or until the edges are set but the centre is still wobbly. Remove from the water bath and cool on rack. Cover and chill for 3 hours or up to 2 days.

5) Just before serving, sprinkle a heaping teaspoon of sugar over each to evenly coat the surface. Then using a kitchen torch, slowly heat the sugar until it bubbles and browns. Place back in the fridge for 5 minutes for the surface to cool and harden. You can also use the broil feature of your oven to caramelize the sugar by placing the ramekins onto a baking sheet and broil as close as possible to the heat source until the sugar browns, about 30-60 seconds.

    I loooove creme brulee, it is definitely one of my favourite desserts! Once I had a creme brulee ice cream, which they would put the crust after you ordered. It was heaven!
    I have never tried doing it myself! I think I should as the recipe looks very easy! 😀

  2. Aaaaaah I do love creme brulee! but I don’t have a kitchen torch..:( Your look very tender and delicious, Lily! ❤

  3. This looks so good, Lily! YUMMY!

    • Thank you and thank you for the compliment on the photos. I’m always so critical of my own photography. And sorry to remind you about the magic cake, I have seen it done without the parchment paper, you can just simply butter the pan so I hope you give it another try, nice chatting with you, hugs:)
