    This is basically an unbaked Creme Brulee. The flavor, directions, and ease of prep was there. There was however, too much time spent in prep. I'd prefer this recipe as a pudding [minus sugared topping] or just make Creme Brulee instead. Probably will not make again.

    Mine did not set well thus I had a hard time getting the sugar to carmelize with the blow torch. Had a good taste but the texture and form were not adequate or appealing.

    Delicious - and so low in calories compared to a creme brulee. I steep the cinnamon and lemon rind in the milk while it is heating to deepen the flavor. Also, lacking a blow torch I just stick the custards under the broiler just before serving to carmelize the sugar - this works fine -and I have used brown sugar as well with good results.
