Crème Caramel "Maman" with Coconut



0 portion(s)


  • 150 grams caster sugar
  • 125 grams water


  • 6 eggs
  • 80 grams caster sugar
  • 350 grams heavy cooking cream
  • 350 grams Milk, Full Cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or paste, good quality

Recipe's preparation


    In a heavy based saucepan or frying pan, melt the 150g sugar in the water without boiling. Once all sugar has dissolved, bring to the boil and cook to a deep amber color caramel. Remove from the heat immediately, and as soon as the caramel stops bubbling, pour into a deep large flan tin (20 to 25 cm) or divide into individual ramekins or dariole moulds.

  2. Crème
  3. Preheat oven at 160C

    Place sugar (80g), cream, milk, vanilla extract and eggs into the TM bowl and mix for 50seconds on speed 3.

    Cook this mixture for 12 minutes at 80C speed 3.

    Once cooked, pour immediately on top of the caramel into the prepared moulds.

    Sprinkle a thin layer of dessicated coconut (if using) on the entire surface of the crème mixture.

    Place the crème caramel dishes into a baking tray and add enough boiling water to come at least half way up the sides of the moulds.

    Bake for about 20 minutes, the crème should be set and the coconut lightly toasted.

    Remove from the baking dish, cover and refrigerate for at least 6-8 hours (preferably overnight) before enjoying.

  4. To serve, carefully ease out the Creme Caramel onto a plate or serving dish and let the caramel drizzle on the sides.

    Enjoy by itself or with fresh vanilla whipped cream. 



I have experimented the "baking" part of this recipe in the Varoma(Varoma temp for 20 minutes with one litre of water in the bowl). The creme caramels need to be placed in the varoma trays and covered with wet baking paper or foil so no water generated from the steam fall back into them). 

The texture of the creme brulee will not be as silky when they are steamed but if you don't have access to an oven, it is a great way to satisfy you "craving".

Please note, when using the steaming method, add the dessicated coconut (if using) to the Creme mixture and cook for 8 minutes at 80C speed 3 instead of 12 minutes.
