crème brulée


I made crème brulée yesterday. In the slow cooker. I am not usually a fan of custards or puddings or other slimy things, but since Amélie likes it, I thought I should at least try making it. And if it's mostly whipping cream, it can't be that bad, right? Oh, my.

Can't be that bad?

I rarely swear. Very rarely. My first taste of this made me say the worst word I know. I had no control over it. It is that good. 'Good' doesn't even begin to describe it. Divine, heavenly, perfect.

The recipe is here; I followed it exactly, for a change, using my homemade vanilla.

Oh, I love creme brulee so much that I have even considered buying a blowtorch. Not a regular one, because that would be silly -- but one of those mini ones specifically for browning creme brulee. I can't remember if they have a particular name. Also, ramekins.

Mr SudsMuffin is on a rice pudding bender it seems. But OH MY it's SO good. I don't know if it's the creamy arborio rice, the coconut milk, the pine nuts, cardamom or what, but he could slather that rice pudding all over me and I wouldn't mind. LOL
