Can you make a giant creme brulee!?
I do not have enough ramekins- I was thinking about putting it in a cake pan- would you cook it the same!? Will it turn out the same!? What would I have to do different!?Www@FoodAQ@Com
This from BBC cooking: "You'll need a shallow ovenproof dish (to make one large creme brulee) or four brulee dishes or large ramekins (for individual brulees)!. You'll also need a mini-blowtorch to caramelise the top"!.
I've seen this done before at or hotel, it's just that most of the time, it's made in individual portions!. As long as it's an ovenproof dish (preferable glass), and it's heated consistently, (toothpick test) it should come out fine !.
And read this about a cassarole dish: "Variation: If you don't have ramekins or custard cups, creme brulee can be baked in a casserole or baking dish!. Follow the above recipe, but instead pour the custard directly into a 1 1/2-quart casserole or a 11- by 7-inch baking dish!. Custard should reach about 2/3 up sides of pan and have a depth of 1 to 1 1/4 inches!. Increase the cooking time by approximately 10 minutes !.
Bake approximately 30 to 40 minutes (25 to 30 minutes for shallow fluted dishes) or until set around the edges but still loose in the center!. The cooking time will depend largely on the size of the custard cup you are using, but begin checking at a half hour and check back regularly!. When the center of the custard is just set, it will jiggle a little when shaken, that's when you can remove it from the oven!. If using a digital instant-read thermometer, inserted in the centers, it should register 170 to 175 degrees F!. Begin checking temperature about 5 minutes before recommended time" !.
