Ingredients for Creme Caramel Recipe:
- 2 cups milk
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup+1/2 cup sugar
- 3-4 tbsp water
- 2-3 tbsp hot water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract/1 package vanilla powder
In a bowl beat the eggs and sugar with a mixer until it gets foamy (2-3 minutes). Heat the milk till gets lukewarm. And then, add in the mixture slowly while mixing. Finally stir in the vanilla and mix them all.
Meanwhile in a small pan, caramelize sugar and 3-4 tbsp water over medium heat. After a while, the mixture will turn brown and sticky. You can smell the caramelized sugar. Turn the heat off and add the hot water. Be careful doing that, it splashes.
Distribute it to small Pyrex or porcelain oven safe bowls (4-6). Preheat the oven to 335 F (170 C). Pour the mixture over the caramel sauce into the bowls. Fill half of a deep tray with hot water and place the bowls into the tray. Bake for about 35-40 minutes. Cooked Crème Caramel should be thick like pudding or Jello. Check it by shaking the bowls gently.
Leave the Crème Caramel in the fridge for about 4-6 hours. Then with a knife scrape the sides of the bowl to let the Crème Caramel out easily. Turn it upside down to a serving plate and serve.
