Crème Caramel

A type of Bulgarian dessert

Crème Caramel


1/4 gallon milk
8 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
a pinch of vanilla (optional)
a pinch of cinnamon (optional)
10-12 small oven-proof cups


Mix the eggs and the milk well. Stir more than half of the sugar in and add the vanilla and cinnamon. Try the mixture and if you find it not sweet enough, add more sugar to taste. Sugar is important here - the more, the better the taste. Melt the rest of the sugar in a non-stick pan, stirring occasionally so it does not burn. Add some water to it to make the melting easier - don't worry water will vaporize gradually leaving the sticky molten sugar in the pan. Pour the sugar in the cups, make sure you cover the bottoms well. Follow by pouring in the egg and milk mixture. Place the full cups in a pan of water in a way that water level reaches the same height as the mixture inside the cup. Bake for about 25 mins in 375 F oven until golden brown crust is formed on top. Serve the contents of the cup upside-down on a small plate.
