I know, monothematic or at least I might seem obsessed with tangerines. Before the CREME BRULEE MANDARIN, then the MANDARIN FROST, then the PARFAIT and now the Tangerine crème caramel. I can say? I'm rediscovering the taste of this winter fruit, until recently, was too sour for my liking. But tastes, you know, change, and today this asperity, In contrast to the sweetness of sugar, attracts me. The crème caramel is one of the most beloved sweet Italian cuisine and is open to different flavors.
And so I leave you the recipe, easy beginner-proof, These Tangerine crème caramel, but you can prepare and flavor even with orange, lemon or grapefruit even depending on your taste. Finally, If you don't like citrus, You can use this recipe simply as a basis for preparing a crème caramel vanilla.
