I haven’t yet met someone that doesn’t like creme brulee with it’s thin, crunchy, glass-like caramel sugar layer topping a silky smooth custard- it really is the perfect dessert that can be served warm (winter comfort food!) or cold in the summer with fresh berries. So how to improve on an already perfect dish?
The special ingredient is…HONEY!
Honey adds a light floral sweetness to the custard that is pure deliciousness! You wouldn’t get the same depth of flavour from the traditional recipe using white sugar.
To make this dessert, simply substitute in honey for the sugar in your favourite creme brulee recipe.
Needless to say that the container was scraped clean by my friends after our morning tea- it’s plate-lickin’ good!
