Creme Caramel

creme caramel

Looking for a light summer dessert? My mom, Alice, gets all of the credit for this one or I thought she did. She confessed that the original recipe was passed down from my great Aunt, Louise Toca. She has soothed broken hearts and healed incurable diseases with this, the ultimate comfort food, crème caramel or creme renversee. My mom always prepared the creme caramel in her special little pyrex baking dishes, used only for this purpose. I have an odd assortment of small ramekins that I use when making creme caramel. The end result is the same, a silky, smooth, egg custard floating in a luscious caramel sauce. Great when served with fresh fruit in the long hot months of summer.
