How to caramelize a mold

How to caramelize a mold


In addition to decorating your favorite molds, caramel provides a delicious slightly bitter after taste to your favorite desserts.

Ingredients for 4 people

3 tbsp water
1 ½ cups sugar


Put the water and sugar into a small saucepan. Place on the heat and stir until the sugar dissolves.

Use a ladle to pour the caramel into whatever mold you want, baring in mind that the thickness will depend on how much caramel you add.

If the caramel hardens too quickly, place the saucepan over medium heat and melt it again without letting it brown further.

Bare in mind that if you fill the mold with a wet batter, the caramel will tend to melt.

To remove caramel residue from your utensils, simply place them in a pot of boiling water.
