Crème brûlée - Traditionally, a rich custard base topped with a layer of carmelized sugar, made with cream, vanilla, salt, eggs, and sugar.
The first written appearance of the recipe was in 1691 in the French cookbook "Le Cuisinier Royal et Bourgeouis" by Francois Massialot, a cook at the Palace of Versailles.
The English version, Burnt Trinity Cream, is said to have been developed by a student at Trinity College in the 17th century and had the college crest burnt into the sugar on the top.
In Catalonia, they have enjoyed Crema Catalana since before the 18th century when the recipe was first recorded there.
We asked Hana, of Nirvana Cakery to create a chocolate crème brûlée that was vegan and common allergen free using our Amore di Mona Bulk Bar.
She did, and it's so simple.
