Lavender Creme Brulee
Sainsbury’s have some fabulous baking kits and have just added a Creme Brulee one to the collection.
I couldn’t wait to try it and I decided, as my mum is a fan of them, I would make them for Mother’s Day.
I could have left it at as a plain Brulee but to make it special I added edible lavender. This made the finished Creme Brulee so much more special and it tasted wonderful.
A little box can bring so much joy!
I love the cracked sugar layer on the top of the custardy lavender mix.
I added 2 teaspoons of edible lavender to the cream and milk when I put it on the hob. The smell which filled the kitchen was so sweet and made me feel a little sleepy. The main part of this was so quick to do and then you let it cool on the side before putting in the fridge for a few hours.
They looked so cute with the sugar on top.
Going under the grill and melting the sugar was stunning. Using the grill was very very clever and be warned the ramekins get so so hot so be careful. I would recommend eating them straight away hot as they didn’t last over night very well.
A great kit and a lot of fun.
Thank you Sainsbury’s for letting me try this new kit.
