Hmmmm, i LOVE creme caramel, but then again I love most desserts!
Creme caramel is actually not so sweet, it is the topping or sauce that makes it sweet and I love it when this has some toffee or crunchy bits on it as the texture goes so very well with the soft not so sweet eggy custard!
Shame I can no longer eat it however tomorrow I take a friend to the best buffet for her birthday and I will have about 10 different desserts - JUST FOR ONCE!
Being made from Egg, I do not eat this at all! I am not that fond of the custard anyway, so it is no big loss to me! I do, however, adore the crunchy toffee which forms when these are made correctly!!! My mum used to do really lovely ones!!!
Mmmmm. I always make sure I have creme caramel from the buffet as most Asian buffets provide this sweet, although at times the crunch is missing so better to order it from a restaurant to get the crunch.
I like Creme Caramel because it has a soft creamy consistency that just melts in your mouth and coats your tongue.
One thing that can let a good Creme Caramel down though is if the caramel sauce is too sweet as that can overpower the custard and all you end up tasting is toffee (or if not done properly it can just taste like burnt sugar).
