Cooking up Custard - SHF no.12
September 16th, 2005

Whenever I discover something I like I can have it over and over again. That applies to music, movies and of course food. Now that I have figured out how to properly make crème brûlée, I want to do it in all possible colors, styles and flavors. So this month’s edition of SHF (Cooking up Custard) hosted by Elise of Simply Recipes came in perfectly handy for more crème brûlée adventures.

Nutella Crème Brûlée
What sparked the idea for a Nutella flavored crème was actually a Nutella-cookbook I decided to buy as a gift for a nutella maniac. After reading some reviews on the book, it became quite obvious that the recipes contained in it, had basically one thing in common: 2 tbsp of nutella. Ok, if that’s all it is to it, why bother and spend any money on the obvious?! Picking a more or less standard crème brûlée recipe as a basis seemed like a good idea, including- …three spoons of Nutella! After preparing the crème, I divided the mixture, left about two thirds normal and added the Nutella to the last third. In a last step I tried to combine the two crèmes in one little dish, to provide a twofold taste experiences. It turned out so good, even O., usually not too thrilled about Nutella, liked it a lot.

Sautéed Nectarines Crème Brûlée
A different variation of crème brûlée I wanted to give a fruity touch. I chose nectarines, because – sautéed in butter with a bit of brown sugar and a decent shot of Marillen Schnapps – they very nicely complemented the crème. In case you’re wondering where they’re hiding, the pieces of sautéed nectarines were placed at the bottom of the dish just before pouring in the custard.
