- Add sugar, salt and vanilla essence to the yolks and give everything a good mix. Then add the milk and mix again.
- Now add the prepared caramel cream mixture and mix again until everything is mixed properly.

- Place ramekins into a baking dish and slowly pour the mixture in the ramekins, by pouring it slowly there will be no bubbles form on the top.
