Recipe: Creamy Crème Brûlée

I am obsessed with sweets. you can wake me up if you have freshly baked pie, cake or anything. This is why I started baking 6 years ago.

Little 12 year old me always wanted to cook, bake or just help in the kitchen with stirring or anything. I started with simple cakes and cookies out of a box. When I turned 16 I thought I could do more and started baking from scratch. I also started trying new recipes and giving them a twist.

Often I want to bake, but I don’t know what. So I let my family decide. I just let them yell ideas to me and I choose one. That is how I started to make Crème Brûlée.
With the leftover egg whites, I make these delicious Meringues.

Crème Brûlée

Crème Brûlée is an amazing creamy dessert with a crunchy sugar crust. You can play a lot with the flavors, but I mostly make the simple vanilla one.
