The magic of summer desserts
Summer desserts hold a special place in our hearts, as they capture the essence of the season through their vibrant colours, fresh ingredients, and luscious flavours. From fruity concoctions to chilled delights, these treats tantalise our taste buds! A special dessert can sometimes be just the thing you need to lift your spirits. The light and airy textures make them the perfect end to a sunny day!
So how do desserts contribute to our well-being? We’re firm believers in balance and mindfulness as part of an overall healthy lifestyle, and it’s ok to treat yourself once in a while right!?
One of our favourite summer desserts is a classic crème brûlée. Behind the seemingly simple façade of crème brûlée lies a careful and precise process. The basic ingredients include egg yolks, sugar, vanilla extract, and heavy cream. The yolks and sugar are whisked together until creamy, while the cream and vanilla are gently heated. The two mixtures unite to form the custard, which is then baked to perfection. Once set, a sprinkle of sugar is caramelised on top, creating the signature crackling brûlée crust that adds an exquisite touch.
While the traditional vanilla crème brûlée is a timeless treasure, creative minds have spun various adaptations to cater to diverse palates. Fruit-infused versions, such as raspberry, lemon, or passion fruit crème brûlée, bring a refreshing tanginess to the classic dessert. For chocolate lovers, a rich and velvety chocolate crème brûlée is a sinful treat worth savouring. Watch our favourite recipe below!
