My favorite dessert is Creme Brulee, so I quickly learned how to successfully make this on my own. Recently I was at a party where the guests finished off their own desserts "broiling" the sugar on their portions with a small torch. What a great idea! —Joylyn Trickel
The starch in corn acts as a natural thickener for this dessert and adds an extra sweetness. The caramelized sugar crust and fruit garnish make for a lovely presentation.—Maryanne Jensen-Gowan, Pelham, New Hampshire
This delectable dessert is baked over a layer of caramelized sugar, so when it's inverted, a delicious golden sauce runs down the edges of the flan and forms a pool on the serving platter.—Mary Ann Kosmas, Minneapolis, Minnesota
My husband and I have enjoyed this simple dessert many times, especially after a Tex-Mex meal. In fact, I've made it so often I don't even look at the recipe. See if it doesn't become a regular favorite at your house.
Just one spoonful of this custard, and you’ll be hooked and request it for every special occasion. Smooth and rich in taste, it’s a dessert staple for anyone fond of chocolate.—Lorraine Caland, Thunder Bay, Ontario
This lightened-up classic from out Test Kitchen is smooth and creamy with a pleasant vanilla flavor. Instead of broiling the sugary sauce on top, we used a foolproof stovetop method so the custard is evenly coated.
