My Grandmother's Crème Caramel Recipe

Do you remember your grandmother's recipes? Believe it or not, many of those recipes are actually naturally gluten-free, and might I add, QUITE delicious. This is by far one of my favorite desserts, so I decided to share my grandmother's recipe for Creme Caramel so that you can enjoy it just as much as I do!

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 and a 1/2 cup of sugar
Teaspoon of vanilla extract
6 eggs
1 tablespoons water

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt the sugar in a pan that has about one tablespoon of water.

Bring it to a boil.

This will brown the sugar.

Pour it into a bread pan, covering all of the sides in an even layer.

Beat the eggs to a fluffy consistency in a bowl. In a pan, bring the cream to a boil, stirring it occasionally. Add the vanilla extract the fluffy eggs to the cream.

Strain the custard into a bread pan.

Put it into a larger tray that has about an inch of water in it.

After half an hour, check the mix. If it has turned a light brown color on top, you are fine. If not, keep it in for another 5-10 minutes. Let it cool for about 5 hours before taking it out of the tray.

Add a touch of whipped cream and voila, you have your creme caramel!
