What Is Creme Caramel?
Creme Caramel is a custard-based dessert. A custard prepared with cream, eggs, sugar, and milk is all it is. This custard is distinguished by the caramel sauce in which it is prepared and given its name. The ramekin's bottom is loaded with a delicious golden brown caramel. When the custard is done, turn it out onto a dish and serve with the caramel sauce from the oven.
How Do You Know When Creme Caramel Is Done?
To test if it's perfectly made or not, insert a knife into the middle. When it comes out clean or with just a smidgeon of custard on it, it's done. Don't overcook the custards since they will continue to cook after they've been taken from the oven.
Creme Caramel vs Flan
Crème Caramel is a custard dessert. It's finished off with a coating of caramel sauce (clear sauce). The sugar syrup is used to make the crème caramel. Typically, the syrup is heated until it reaches the caramel and mold stages. The custard foundation is then added, whereas Flan is a pastry-based dessert with a ringed pastry edge or an open sponge foundation. Depending on the preferences, it comes with a sweet or savory filling. Flan comes from Roman cuisine, and the main components are pastry, custard, and vegetables. It's usually served cold as a dessert or as a main dish.
