On the other day, when my daughter had the flu, she wanted to eat Creme Caramel. I didn’t want to drive to a supermarket, so I made it using microwave. As it was unexpectedly so successful, I am now writing down the method. This is super easy and quick. If you ever crave this dessert, you should try it.


1 Serving


1 tablespoon Caster Sugar
1 teaspoon Water

1 Egg
1 & 1/2 tablespoons Caster Sugar
1/2 cup Full Cream Milk
Vanilla Extract *optional

  1. Place Sugar and Water in a ramekin or mug. Cook in the microwave at 600W power for 2 minutes (OR 1 minute at 1100W). Then carefully cook further until it turns brown. Set aside and cool. The caramel will harden.
  2. While the caramel is cooling, mix Egg, Caster Sugar, Milk and a few drops Vanilla in a small bowl until well combined and smooth. Pour the mixture over the caramel, that is probably still warm.
  3. Cook in the microwave at 600W (OR 50% power) power for 2 minutes. Then carefully cook further until it sets. Set aside and cool, then chill in the fridge. Turn out onto a deep plate.
