Made this recipe last night for 4. I used the standard size ramakins (not the little shallow ones). Was the perfect amount. Everyone including myself loved it!! This recipe is amazing Lemony, smooth addictive! I didn't have any cinnamon sticks so I used about a 1/4 of a tea of ground cinnamon as a substitute. I only had 1 lemon but that produced more than enough juice/rinds. This is a new favorite dessert! Thanks
Hint of cinnamon makes this better than the rest.
Definitely a 5 star recipe! I couldn't find all of my small ramekins (precocious toddler in the house) so I used the large ones & made 3 servings. The lemon flavor was deliciously smooth, not at all overpowering & the richness is easily overlooked for this little treat. Will be keeping this recipe for my go-to as DH is a lemon lover. Thanks for sharing, Sauce Lover. Made, enjoyed, reviewed & photographed for PAC Fall 2008.
WOW!!! This is outstanding I was not sure what to expect with this one. I love creme brulee but was not sure about the addition of lemon. This is better than the regular way, it was so delicious all of us just kept commenting on how good it was. I only got 4 servings out of this which is all I wanted, but I think my ramekins are a lot bigger than the 3 oz size stated. I will be making this again and again. This is one of the best desserts I have had in a long time, an absolute winner. Totally sinful with all that cream but definitely worth every bite.
This was my first try making creme brulee. I love all things lemony, and this was outstanding. Very easy to prepare, and I will have this again. Thanks for posting, Sauce Lover. Adopted for Spring 2008 PAC.
