Creme de Pots


  • 1 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 vanilla bean , split lengthways and seeds scraped out (alternatively use vanilla bean paste)


  • Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees C (320 degrees F)
  • In a saucepan add the milk and vanilla bean (seeds and bean). Bring to the boil and turn off heat and allow to infuse for 15 minutes; discard bean
  • Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and maple syrup. Now pour the hot milk slowly over the egg mixture while you continue to whisk
  • Add mixture to 6 ramekins or small pots. Place pots in a baking dish and fill with hot water so it comes halfway up the sides of the ramekins
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until set. The centre should still wobble slightly
  • Allow to cool slightly and refrigerate


I added a few raspberries to a couple of my pots before cooking
