I came across this recipe in a recent People magazine. I can't believe I had missed out on this before! I needed a dessert for just the two of us for Thanksgiving and we loved the texture/taste. I just used store-bought croissants and added a touch of cinnamon. So glad to see it posted here so I don't lose the page I tore out of our magazine. Happy Holidays!

Amazingly good - and simple! Every time I serve this to guests (often) it gets oooh's and aaah's!

Fantastic, great flavor, light like creme brulee! So easy and quick to whip up. I cooked it about 15 minutes longer than stated. Don't omit the bourbon whiskey. I think that's what makes it! Had it hot out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream. Thought I'd died and went to heaven!!!

I saw this recipe by Nigella in Foodnetwork and tried it several times already. It's great but sub it with low fat milk and light cream. Plus no bourbon so added kahlua instead. Taste of heaven really but BEST eaten when warm with vanilla ice cream. Not so good when cold. Thanks for posting.

I could have eaten this off the TV screen when I watched her whip this concoction together on Nigella Express! One note: I didn't see the Regis show, but the recipe I downloaded from Food Network differs in step five. On Express she removes the caramel from the heat BEFORE adding the cream, milk and bourbon, which may be important since the caramel will be so hot!

In the show, Nigella Express, and the Times UK website, Nigella calls for 100g of sugar. This translates as 1/2 cup - yet here and on Food Network's site, it's translated as a cup! I doubled the recipe and put in a single cup of sugar, and it was quite sweet - double the sugar would've been very very sweet - especially since she recommends eating this instead of dinner!
