In a small sauce pan on low heat, we add in all the ingredients for the Caramelé, we stir slowly until it turns into a golden brown color. When it’s done we pour the Caramelé into our tin or silicone baking pans and turn to cover all sides and set aside to cool off.
At the same time start to warm up the milk in another sauce pan, add in the lemon peel plus the vanillas. Whisk eggs with sugar in a separate bowl, once the milk has come to a boil start to slowly add into the egg mixture and continue to stir until it has all blended together nicely. Pour the mixture into your pans.
Take a large baking pan and add water, it should reach approximately half of the baking pan. Add your tin pans into the watered baking pan and bake for 50 minutes at 180 degrees. (keep on eye on the water in the pan this part is very crucial). After about 50 minutes, set aside for about an hour to cool off. Then place in the refrigerator overnight…and you can enjoy your lovely dessert the following day.
Tip: I add in the lemon peel, because I like to give the Cremé/Custard a bit of a taste to it.
