Maple Pots de Creme

Maple Pots de Creme


A big bottle of maple syrup was sitting on my counter just tempting me to use it again and I could not resist. I opened my browser and did a quick search for bookmarked maple recipes and came across this one for maple pots de creme on Eggs on Sunday that sounded decadently delicious. Pots de creme are cream mixed with some kind of flavour, such as chocolate or maple syrup along with a sweetener if required, that is baked with egg yolks until it sets like a custard. Maple flavoured pots de creme sounded irresistibly good and I got to making them right away! The maple pots de creme were pretty easy to make and well worth the hour waiting for them to bake while being tortured by their amazing aroma. They were nice and warm and light and creamy and full of maple goodness! With a nice show of will power I wrapped the extras up in plastic wrap and placed them in the fridge. The leftovers were really nice while still cool from the fridge. They were a bit thicker and nice and cool and refreshing but they were still amazingly creamy and full of maple flavour.

Yumm! Looks delicious! Imagine if you sprinkled some maple sugar on top and torched it for a brulee finish...

Elra said...

Hmm, I can imagine how smooth, silky and melt in your mouth type of dessert. Never made it with maple syrup before, but it does sound very sweet.
Cheers,

I love the idea of a smooth and creamy texture against the sweetness of maple syrup.

Poornima Nair said...

Ciao Chow Linda said...

Kevin - These are so wonderful looking, and would be a perfect treat to take to a friend who's ill and can only eat soft foods.

Mary said...

Kevin, this sounds great. If you do them again try adding 1/2 teaspoon pure maple extract to the base. It will boost the maple taste.

Helene said...

This is right in my alley Kevin. I love maple syrup and these are really nice. They look like they melt in the mouth.

I'd love a serving of this type of custard! I've not tried it with maple, and I think that I should remedy that!

Manggy said...

I can't imagine a form of torture I'd rather be "enduring!"

Christina Kim said...

Oh just divine. Once again, Kevin, simply brilliant. Could you torch the top with a bit of sugar, like creme brulee? Or is that not appropriate for a pots de creme?

Debbie said...

I have never tasted this kind of dessert before, looks so yummy. It looks like my favorite dessert Crème brûlée', how would you use maple doing Crème Brûlée? Maybe I'll just wait to see if you post a crème brûlée of maple. ;) hint..hint..

Auto Showcase said...

This recipe spoke to me. I am a confirmed Maple junkie and knew I had to do this. All I can say is OMG! The smooth creamy texture from the moment you dip your spoon reinforces the fact that this is going to be a bite to behold. It is like a Creme Brulee but better!
