    I made this recipe last week and it was great! There is one major flaw with the recipe though. The sugar will not just melt and become caramel. I'm not an experienced baker and I trusted the recipe and ended up with hard sugar stuck to my pot. LOL Luckily for me I had caramel sauce in the fridge and the dessert was saved! Spoke to some friends who are experienced bakers and they said you need melt the sugar in water. I didn't know that. lol Anyway, I think that needs to be added to the recipe so no one else has the same issues.

    This made a ton. I only used half of the batter and I filled up 8 ramekins.
