Quick and simple, you can prepare these little desserts ahead of time.

Prep Time: 15 MIN
Total Time: 2 HR 30 MIN
Servings: 4


6 saffron strands
2 teaspoons hot milk
1 sachet (49g) Betty Crocker™ Crème Caramel Mix
575ml milk
3 cardamom pods, lightly crushed, seeds removed and ground
1/4 teaspoon rose water
1 sachet (35g) Betty Crocker™ Homestyle Whipping Cream Mix
115ml cold milk
Dried rose petals


Medium pan
Wooden spoon
4 x 150ml capacity molds/serving cups
Medium bowl
Electric or hand held mixer


  1. Place saffron strands in small bowl with 2 teaspoons hot milk. Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Place 575ml milk into a medium pan and bring to the boil over a medium-high heat. Add the crème caramel mix. Return to a boil stirring continuously to ensure the powder has fully dissolved. Stir in the saffron milk, cardamom and rose water.
  3. Pour the mixture carefully into 4 (150ml capacity) heatproof molds or serving cups. Cool 15 minutes at room temperature. Refrigerate 2 hours or until fully set.
  4. Beat whipping cream mix and cold milk in medium bowl as directed on package.
  5. Gently run a knife around the sides of each mold and turn out onto servings plates or serve in serving cups. Sprinkle with dried rose petals. Serve with the whipping cream.


Another way of ensuring the crème caramel comes out of the mold is to very quickly dip the mold in hot water. The crème caramel should then slide out. You can serve the crème caramel in the molds or serving cups instead of turning out.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
