Since I was at home today with a swollen throat due to some unknown food allergy, and I finally opened my box of Dr. Oetker’s Creme Caramel mix I bought from Superstore (approximately $2.50) couple weeks ago.
This is a mix that comes with one pouch of custard powder, and another pouch of caramel syrup.
On the back of the box are instructions:
After all the prepping and boiling; pre-chilling
I only had one ramekin bowl (that I bought from Las Vegas and brought it to Vancouver) and used glassware instead. Because the dessert mixture was hot and I don’t like putting hot things in the fridge, I put them on a cold towel before chilling them in the fridge.
Some problems I encountered
- Syrup was very thick so it got a bit messy with me when I was trying to pour them evenly.
- I was impatient and set the milk to boil a bit over the medium so the milk almost spilled out of the sauce pan.
All in all, I think I got most of the steps right. I put the serving dishes in the fridge and they were in a jello-ed state after several hours. They were quite tasty, and a bit sweet, but not too sugary.
I tried this before turning it upside down on a dessert plate:
Couldn’t get a picture of the ramekin with the upside down dessert, because my parents ate it before I even knew.
