hot water, or as needed
Taste was great. I did not like how thin it came out as I wouldn't serve it like that. So double the recipe for that size pan perhaps. I will try doing this again that way. Not sure how I was supposed to serve it, on a plate? in a dessert bowl? Worth trying as it is little ingredients for a nice tasting dessert.
The taste of this was okay, but having followed the instructions to the t, the caramel didn't turn out (it basically just turned into a brick of white sugar). So I started it over and used 3 TBSP of water and managed to get a syrup. The custard also had to cook for an extra 30 minutes to even begin to set up. In the end the taste was only average, and definitely not worth all the extra time.
The caramel syrup never turned golden brown...just a white brick of sugar. And I guess I didn't let it cook long enough (I did the recommended 45 minutes @ 350 degrees Fahrenheit) because it tasted like sweet scrambled eggs. I do like the suggestions made by the other reviews (I'm not a super cook yet so I'm still learning).
One of the easiest and yummiest dessert to prepare. Its my husband's favorite.
Few tips: For the caramel, heat the sugar with 5-6 tbsp water (for a flowing consistency ) over a high to medium flame and once it starts to caramalize, reduce the flame and wait until it fully caramalizes.
Once the custard is set and cool, invert it over a plate and serve.
