I made the Caramel Pots de Creme for this week’s pick for Tuesdays With Dorie EXACTLY as written (except I only made 1/4 of the recipe). It made three small (cute little heart shaped) ramekins of creme.
The most annoying thing is that I thought I’d try covering the pan with the ramekins ready to bake with plastic wrap just as the recipe suggests, even though I knew many complained about the plastic wrap melting AND when we made the Chocolate Pots de Creme I didn’t cover it with anything and it was fine. I should have just gone with my gut, but I wanted to see for myself if the plastic wrap did anything.
It melted. By the time I checked on it part way through the baking, it was already melted quite a bit, so I didn’t think we should eat them. So glad I only made 1/4 of the recipe! I decided to taste one, so I scraped off a good part of the top layer of creme, sprinkled a few mini chocolate chips on top and tasted it.
It was good. Probably not something I’d make again. I really like the Chocolate version—better. I was happy that the whole making caramel thing worked, even with such a small amount of sugar since the 1/4 recipe is so small.
I was able to peel this off the edges of the pan. sigh If you’d like to make this, Peggy from Peggy the Baker chose the recipe and will have it on her blog.
Is it just me, or anyone else find it really hard to believe June is here? Totally crazy. Now, if the weather here would just act like it’s springtime. Actually, I think we’re finally done with snow, but now it just keeps on raining and it’s windy and cold. Enough already. ;)
