  • 4 x 150ml ramekins


For the caramel

  • 100 g Caster sugar
  • 65 ml Water

For the custard

  • 235 ml Double cream
  • 100 ml Milk
  • 3 Eggs large
  • 50 g Caster sugar
  • ½ tsp Vanilla extract
  • 45 ml Baileys


  • Have 4 x 150ml ramekins ready on your work surface
  • Make the caramel by putting the caster sugar and water into a frying pan and heating on a low heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved
  • Then, turn the heat up to medium-high and the sugar syrup boils and bubbles. It will take 5-10 minutes, but the mixture will turn a golden brown colour. Swirl the pan around if needed, but don't overly stir it
  • Pour the caramel straight into the ramekins and swirl it around a bit, leave to cool
  • Pre-heat your oven to 120C Fan/140C/275F/Gas Mark 1
  • Put the double cream and milk in a pan and warm on a low heat until steaming
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and caster sugar
  • Pour the milk mixture into the egg mixture slowly and while constantly whisking
  • Then whisk in the Baileys and vanilla
  • Strain the mixture through a sieve into a jug
  • Place the ramekins into a deep roasting tin
  • Divide the custard mixture between the ramekins
  • Fill the roasting tin with hot water to come half way up the sides of the ramekins
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes until the custard is set and has a wobble to it
  • Remove the ramekins from the roasting tin and leave to cool, then put in the fridge for at least 1 hour to chill
  • To serve, run a knife around the inside of the ramekin and tip the creme caramel out onto a plate. It may need a shake or tap to encourage it!
  • They can be kepy in the fridge for 2 days before serving
