This is a yummy looking dessert I am going to try from Sandra Lee today on the Food Network along with her other lemon recipes. My hubby loves Creme Brulee - it's his favorite dessert in fact, and I think I could manage this one for Valentine's Day. ;) I will post a pic if it turns out! It looked scrumptious on tv- lemons and blueberries mmmm...c'mon summer!!
- 1 (3 1/2 ounce) box instant lemon pudding (recommended Jell-O brand)
- 2 cups milk, cold
- 1⁄2 pint blueberries, fresh (about 6-ounces)
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- Whisk together the cold milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes in a medium mixing bowl. Place in refrigerator for 5 minutes.
- Set aside 12 blueberries for garnish.
- Fold remaining berries into the pudding.
- Divide pudding into 4 portions(8-ounce heat-proof ramekins preferred).
- Refrigerate desserts until ready to serve.
- Sprinkle the top of each dessert with 1 tablespoon of sugar.
- Place ramekins on a cookie sheet and put under broiler for 2 to 3 minutes or until sugar has caramelized or use a culinary torch. (Hint: rotate sheet pan under broiler so that sugar caramelizes evenly).
- Garnish each brulee with the remaining blueberries.
- Enjoy! ;).
This was certainly quick and easy but not creme brulee. It was a delicious lemon blueberry pudding with caramelized sugar on top. So, for a quick, delicious and fancy dessert, this fits the bill, but for a creme brulee - not really.
I would have never thought of putting lemon pudding and blueberries together but what a great combination. I do wish that we had a culinary torch instead of using the broiler as making with that method resulted in uncooked sugar in the middle, but still tasted good. Our 85 year old neighbors loved them!!
So easy and so good. I'll try with different kind of puddings. Thanks Mommy Diva :)
