PLEASE NOTE: This recipe calls for the GRILLING or BROILING of food. In most countries of the world, the term "grilling" refers to heat coming from above the food source. Significantly, in North America, it signifies heat from below the food (such as barbecuing). In the United States and Canada, when the heat source for grilling comes from above, grilling is termed broiling, and the pan that holds the food is usually called a broiler pan.


How to Cook Raspberry and Caramel Crunch

  1. Place the caramelised biscuits into a blender and reduce to a coarse powder. Arrange the raspberries into ramekins (2 layers if necessary, depending on the size of your ramekins). Sprinkle the powdered biscuit over the raspberries.
  2. Mix well the eggs, cream and sugar in a bowl then pour over the raspberries and biscuit. Cook for 10 minutes in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 6 - 400°F - 200°C) for 10 minutes then under the oven grill for a further 2 or 3 minutes to make the top crisp. Be sure not to place them too close to the heating element. Serve immediately and wait for the round of applause!
  3. Lotus Original Caramelised BiscuitsSpeculoos are sold in many countries as Lotus Original Caramelised Biscuits. There are similar biscuits made by other manufacturers like Jules Destrooper

For maximum impact, retain 6 of the raspberries to decorate the finished dishes, and dust lightly with a little icing sugar.
GRAHAM'S WINE RECOMMENDATION: GrahamA lovely fresh Côtes de Bergerac which is a deeply smooth sweet white wine is the perfect accompaniment for this great dessert.

Please don't ever stop with the French-inspired recipes. A huge reason behind my obsession with your site (and your blog) is because you make even the most daunting of French desserts look so beautiful and simple. This was a total 110% success and I shall certainly be doing it again and again.
