A pots de creme is a French dessert that is a loose, baked custard. It is traditionally baked in small pots with lids, but can also be baked in small porcelain dishes. Recipes call for a basic batter of eggs, cream, and flavouring. The usual flavouring is chocolate or vanilla, but new recipes add other flavourings such as strawberry or matcha tea. The custard pudding is baked in a water bath which helps it to cook more evenly and prevent it from setting completely, which is the aim of the dessert. To top this delicious dessert, try powdered sugar, mint leaves, or a chocolate sauce. For a budding baker, an attempt at this dessert might be incredibly fun! But if that’s not your thing, you could always try one from a bakery near you.
