Day 27: Creme Caramel and Creme Brulee

588

These two popular desserts are to die for, some people are often confused between these two. What makes each of them unique is the caramel itself. For creme caramel, the caramel is cooked by using a dry method, where there is no water needed to melt the sugar. This method will produce a darker and deeper colour of the caramel. However, you need to be careful with the heat intensity, because you might burn your caramel and that is the saddest thing that can happen. It is because it will take so much of your energy to clean it later.

As for the creme brulee, sugar is spread evenly on the surface and a blow torch is used to caramelize the crust. This method will melt the sugar and the melted sugar will cover the whole surface. The sugar will set and give that interesting sugar crack on top.
