Creme Caramel

One of my friends recently requested for a Caramel Custard recipe.  So, I browsed through my collection of recipes and chanced upon this recipe which I believe is quite close to her request.  As I'm not a milk fan, I tweaked it a bit and substituted milk with soymilk, just to try, and I'm pleasantly surprised and pleased with the result as this is my first attempt.




after being refrigerated overnight and inverted onto a serving dish




Yummy .........

Recipe for Creme Caramel

Ingredients for Caramel :
    4 oz. granulated Sugar
1/4  cup water
Preparation :
    Warm a small heavy-based saucepan over low heat, pour in the granulated sugar followed by the water.
Using a wooden spoon, keep stirring until all the sugar has dissolved.  Once the sugar has dissolved, stop stirring and let the syrup boil.  If you continue to stir at this stage, the syrup will crystallise.
Shake the saucepan a bit and keep a close eye on the caramel as it can burn quickly towards the end of the heating process.
Monitor the colour of the syrup and let it boil to a golden brown.
Remove from heat and immediately pour into two, 6 inch souffle dish or six, 3 inch ramekin dishes.
Ingredients for Custard :
    4 Eggs
    1  Tbsp Brown Sugar
600 ml Low Fat Milk/Soymilk
1/4  Teasp vanilla
Preparation :
    Whisk the eggs and brown sugar in a bowl till the sugar has dissolved. 
Add in the milk and whisk in the vanilla, then strain the custard onto the cool caramel.
Bake in water bath, by standing the dishes in a roasting pan containing enough hot water to come halfway up the sides of the dishes, in a preheated oven at 170 deg C for about 45 minutes.  The custard should be just set and firm to the touch.
When cold, cover the dishes and leave in the refrigerator for several hours or preferably overnight.
To serve, carefully loosen the edge of the dish with a palette knife and invert onto a serving dish.

  5. Creme Caremel is one of my favorite desserts. We usually do it with evaporated milk.

    I read some where, someone commented, 'what's this evaporated milk? If evaporated already, where's the milk?' Very well said, don't you agree, ha, ha.

    At first look at the recipe, I thought it's difficult or rather time consuming, but it turned out to be quite easy.

    Give the soymilk a chance, try it! I used Soyrich no sugar added, from Yeo's, just for your info.

  8. I am curious to know how many caramel custard it turned out with 4 eggs? I would like to make more custard if I have to put in the time and effort to complete the task. Can I double the recipe?
    Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes. You made cooking/baking fun again.

  9. Hi Sonia
    Under the preparation of caramel, I mentioned two, 6 inch souffle dish OR six, 3 inch ramekin dishes. If you want more, than you can double the recipe to 8 eggs or one and half recipe, which means 6 eggs, but also remember to increase the caramel as well. Also check out your roasting pan (to add water) to see how many dishes it can accommodate in one sitting.

The scientific name for Peach resin is Prunus Persica which is resin secreted from the Peach tree and form like crystals which are stuck to the tree.  Originated from China, the composition of peach resin is collagen, amino acids.  The rich collagen helps to improve the complexion, nourishes and helps to prevent dryness of the skin.  It also helps to improve bowel movement.  In short, this is an inexpensive substitute to the highly expensive birds nest.

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
