This recipe was great, rich and delicious even though I used fat free 1/2 and 1/2. I substituted 1/2 tsp. vanilla for the vanilla bean due to the cost of the bean. It took much longer to bake than indicated but that could be because of either the fat free cream or the larger ramekins I used. Am going to make it for company for the 2nd time this week.

There is definitely something wrong with this recipe. The whole thing was just a disaster from taking twice as long to cook to the strange half pudding/half jello texture. It was also way too sweet. Sorry but this was terrible.

This was very tasty, but, as a previous reviewer mentioned, I had to bake it a lot longer than indicated in the recipe. The portion size was also very small. I would say that this recipe serves 4 rather than 8. And the recipe says that the portion size is 1 cup, which does not seem possible since the ramekin sized called for is only 4 oz.

There is supposed to be 8 yolks in this recipe! There was a correction in the magazine. These were delicious as the recipe reads, just a little soupy because no matter how long you cook them they won't set. I will definitely make again with the 8 yolks! I used maple sugar on top too, but be careful, it burns easily!
