Why I Love This Recipe

This was our Valentine's Day dessert last night! So sweet and simple, I could eat it any time.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 1/2 c. sugar
2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbls. lemon zest
4 eggs
1/3 c. water


Preheat oven to 350 and grease 6 ramekins.

Stir 2 c. sugar and water over high heat until sugar dissolves.

Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer (Do not stir!).

Cook until sugar turns golden and thickens (I repeat: Do not stir it!).

Pour equal amounts of caramel into ramekins and set aside.

Beat eggs, add all remaining ingredients and beat.

Pour equal amounts into ramekins.

Place ramekins into a large baking dish and fill with water until it reaches halfway up the sides of ramekins to make a water bath.

Bake for 45 minutes.

Remove and cool to room temperature.

Chill for at least 3 hours before serving.

To serve, run a knife lightly around the edge and invert ontp plates, garnish with lemon twist.
