8 identical Crème Caramels

8 identical Crème Caramels

In episode 7 of Season 14 of The Great British Baking Show ™, the 6 remaining contestants were required to create eight identical crème caramels - beautifully set baked custards. They had 2 hours 45 minutes. 

Of crème caramels, Paul Hollywood said "It's basically a beautiful caramel sauce on the top, falling down the sides of a silky, smooth, set custard."

Prue Leith added "Baking a perfect custard is really tricky. When it's perfectly baked it will be just set. A crème caramel should wobble like a jelly. It if overbakes, it gets little holes in it and becomes a little stodgy or even hard."

For this episode of The Great British Baking Show ™, Paul Hollywood said "Obviously, the contestants can introduce any flavor into the custard of the crème caramel, or into the caramel sauce. However, the caramel has to be the star. We want it to be golden brown. If it's too pale, we're not going to get the full flavor."
