This was delicious, very very sweet. I didn't have 35% cream (heavy whipping cream) so instead I used half-n-half, which I think is about 12% cream. Still, quite rich. The maple syrup caramel sauce sinks to the bottom to create a warm, oozy puddle of goodness at the bottom. Would be absolutely lovely in individual ramekins.
This recipe is fantastic. I found the exact one in French with many reviews, and some reviewers mentioned the original published recipe (magazine) stated it should be cooked at 350 degrees, not 325. Which I did, came out perfect after exactly 35 mins.
I made this for my French class and everyone loved it. Thanks!
