Caramel Pots de Creme -- Tuesdays with Dorie

Time for Tuesdays with Dorie and I'm actually posting again -- I know, two TWD weeks in a row! Trying to make a comeback here :) Our recipe of the week is for Caramel Pots de Creme, my second attempt making pots de creme (my first one was the chocolate version for TWD -- which turned out lovely). Thank you to Peggy from Peggy the Baker for this pick.

The above photo is before baking, I covered mine in aluminum foil and had to bake for a little longer than the recipe called for, 20 minutes perhaps? It was a while after, but they just weren't setting up for me. Anyway, they looked delicious, the caramel taste was nice, but they were just too custardy / eggy for me this time.

Not sure what happened between me making the TWD chocolate pots de creme and these but after unexpectedly liking those, I was expecting to love these (since I am personally more of a caramel fan than chocolate) but no cigar :( Kids did not like these either, while I remember them loving the chocolate ones. Oh-well. You win some, you lose some. Still was fun to get out my little ramekins and bake something, and the luscious caramel smell in the kitchen was worth it :)

We found them better when fresh at room temperature than after sitting in the fridge overnight. But they were very eggy.
Yours look lovely!

They look beautiful! I must admit to baking these twice--the first time with foil since I was super skeptical of plastic wrap. I think I over-baked them because the second time I made them and used plastic wrap, I could more easily see the jiggliness and they were luscious. I think these are temperamental little things! Thanks for baking with me this week.

Too bad you didn't like these cause they were mighty tasty.

I had to bake mine a few minutes longer as well and the plastic 'melted' on the pots, but not into them.

Mine were more like a flan.

Such a shame they didn't taste good when they look so lovely!
