I tried this recipe for my son's going away dinner. It was easy to prepare and tasted very refreshing with the hint of mint in the cream. I followed the recipe and did a few tweaks.I added 24 leaves of mint instead of 15. After baking it for 60 minutes at 90 degrees, the brulee hadn't set yet. I decided to steam it in my aluminium wonton steamer for a further 20 minutes— I used to make a local version of the creme caramel and I would cook this in a steamer for 45 minutes—and they came out just right. This dessert is now part of my dessert repertoire!

Crème Brulee is time consuming and you have to have it just right. However, you simply have to try this recipe for this amazing flavor combination. It’s a home run in the dessert category.
