Hi all, yes my summer vacations are over and here I am back to my pevilion :) I did quite an few relaxed baking though, those, will try updating to you guys soon. Back to Baking partners challenge, this month - Tamy had suggested us two wonderful custard based recipes. I had choosen, this salted caramel pots de creme.
Pots de creme, is an french based dessert which refers to an pots of custard or cream. They are prepared with egg yolks, milk, cream and an flavoring (which here, is caramel). The mixture so obtained, after straining are baked in waterbath, cooled and are refrigerated overnight for an firm custard. These pots looked gorgeous after an sea salt sprinkle, would have be better with an whipped cream as well. The firm crusted top with an gooey filling was like chewing into an toffee. The sea salt complemented very well with caramel filling and gave an crunchable texture to pots de creme. At home, everybody enjoyed and licked the ramekins clean :) Thanks to Tamy and Swathi for such an wonderful challenge. Nothing would have cheered my family better :)
