    2% milk should not make any difference, BUT, I would use 1 cup less - 11/17/09

  • I used whole milk since that is what I keep in my house. I put hot water in the pan and baked it for about an hour. It set okay but think it would have set better if had used half&half or cream. I didn't do the sugar syrup. I sprinkled a some sugar on top and broiled in oven for 2 min. Tasted good. - 9/24/12

  • There's a few details that might have been missed. I actually scalded 1%milk with 1/2 of the vanilla. I wisked the other 1/2 of the vanilla, sugar, and egg yolks. I then tempered the egg mixture with the milk. When filling the pan with water, use hot water. When done put only ramekins in fridge - 8/26/11

    The recipe helped me use up the egg yolks I had leftover from the apple pancake recipe. I used 3 cups soymilk creamer because that what I had on hand. It tasted good, but didn't set-up. Very runny and didn't look appetizing. I would only make it again if I had ranekin dishes to try it like it says. - 1/12/11

  • Julia Child once said that "you CAN make things without the cream and butter, but then, why bother???" This dish is a good way to enjoy French cooking without the added calories. I'd use less milk (to let it set more) - and I'm going to try to melt/caramelize the sugar in the microwave. Easier? - 1/14/10
