We really liked this a lot but I will put a little less lemon in it next time because the kids didnt really enjoy it that much.

Very much enjoyed, a lighter, looser texture than creme brulee, with a delicate flavour, my husband was pleasantly surprised by this (for us) unusual dessert. Not difficult to make, I was quite nervous about over-cooking it, but it was fine. I made it the day before and let it sit overnight in the fridge, putting it under the grill the following evening. This made six desserts in small ramekins, for me. Thanks, Annacia!

This pudding has a wonderfully lemony flavor. Lighter in texture than a creme brulee and to me, other than caramelizing the top upon completion I am not entirely sure the two are similar. I used my kitchen torch for the final touch. I enjoyed this very much and will make again! Thank you, Annacia!

This recipe is very similar to a recipe I found on Spain recipes (only the directions are a tad bit different) for crema Catalan. This has a good flavor but I personally prefer the smother texture of crème Brule. The directions don’t mention when or where to put the cornstarch so I submitted a correction. Thanks for posting.

*Made for ZWT* Delicious! Very easy to make with a wonderful lemon flavor. This wasn't as "custardy" as creme brulee, but I liked it even better. This recipe fit perfectly in four (4 oz.) ramekins. My family loved this and gave it 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this wonderful dessert.

These were so good!! The lemon was the dominant flavour for me (maybe my lemon was huge), but it was fantastic and creamy. I thought it was quite different from crème brulée, but it was great in it's own right. Thanks Annacia! Your recipe was really clear and easy to follow!

One taste of this, and I thought I had died and gone back to Mount Olympus! I've never had creme brulee before, so I really didn't know what to expect. The taste of this far exceeded my expectations. It was really easy to make and I could have eaten all four serving by myself. This will definitely be made again and often. Thank you for sharing the recipe Annacia!!!
