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 tablespoon Caster Sugar
1 teaspoon Water
1 & 1/2 tablespoons Caster Sugar
1/2 cup Full Cream Milk
Vanilla Extract *optional
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
