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 :)
