Classy, creamy, smooth and rich, this simplifed pot de crème (a fancy French custard that is baked and chilled) is amazing. Simply amazing.
Not only is it easy to make but it tastes like you are eating something so ethereally creamy and luscious, you’ll swear some gourmet live-in chef who works 7 days a week for free and who’s been to culinary school and back made this for you.
I was intrigued by the name of this dessert when Hollie, a reader, sent it to me and was thrilled when the taste and texture lived up to such a gourmet and lovely name. I mean, “crème” (come on, say it with a thick, French accent!) sounds so much dreamier than plain old “cream” or “pudding.”
This recipe rivals one of my old favorites winning the contest due to it’s ease of preparation and would also be delicious garnished with chocolate shavings or curls.
Make this. The sweet and tart berries combined with the decadent lightness of the simple custard will wow you. And your friends. And your family. And your dog. And your whomever. Rest assured you’ll wow them all or your money back guaranteed. Er, or something like that.
