Espresso Créme Brulée


 

I




Jane Austen moment in Persuasion

Chapter 7

Frederick Wentworth had used such words, or something like them, but without an idea that they would be carried round to her. He had thought her wretchedly altered, and in the first moment of appeal, had spoken as he felt. He had not forgiven Anne Elliot. She had used him ill, deserted and disappointed him; and worse, she had shewn a feebleness of character in doing so, which his own decided, confident temper could not endure. æShe had given him up to oblige others. It had been the effect of over-persuasion. It had been weakness and timidity.
He had been most warmly attached to her, and had never seen a woman since whom he thought her equal; but, except from some natural sensation of curiosity, he had no desire of meeting her again. Her power with him was gone for ever.







Espresso Créme Brulée

  1. Love this coffee influence. Haven't got a burner though would under the grill suffice?

    1. Thanks Magnolia. You can always place under the oven broiler to caramelize crust. I used to do that when I don't have a burner; It works perfectly too. Have a nice day! =)

  4. This looks delicious!! I don't think I've ever tried an espresso creme brulee before. I made a coffee custard which was delicious but I can imagine that this would taste much better especially with the crispy top :)

  12. This is my favourite dessert & your version looks quite easy to follow. You must have a big house & big garden where you can grow so many types of flowers there?

    I made some Lemon & Ginger Brulee Tarts recently which I haven't posted yet but the recipe that I used was rather strange. It didn't require to bake & not sure which parts that I had done wrong, my tarts didn't set well though I've refrigerated overnight. For all the creme brulee recipes that I've studied, they all require in baking. But this one doesn't, so I gave it a try but didn't work, what a shame. I was so looking forward to taste it. So at last, I put them in the freezer for a while b4 I ate them, hahaha!

  13. i guess coffee flavour must be good in creme brulee, maybe not as rich as the plain creme brulee cos i remember the last time i made cb, it was quite rich and filling. I wish my hands are long enough to reach your creme brulee and also the flowers!

  15. Very pretty flowers! You must be feeling "special" eating your delicious creme brulee with these pretty flowers.

  16. Kit, Créme brûlée is one of our favorite dessert. Almost all restaurants have this and I get no problem of eating a gluten free dessert.
    I think I can easily make this at home by looking at your recipe and coffee flavor is of course our favorite.

  17. Hi Kit, Your creme Brulee look awesome, very inviting. I'm sure it taste good with espresso, for me any coffee any time of the day no problem.

    Love the pink presentation, so lovely and sweet. As usual admire all your beautiful flowers and photography skill.

    My dear, I invited 2 Leng chais in my blog waiting for you. If you get HOT, HOT with the Leng Chais, never mind I got something refreshing to cool you down. But don't see Leng Chais and forget your husband name. LOL

    Have a nice day, regards.

  21. I love creme brûlée of any kind - and I recently tried a panna cotta with espresso which was delicious, so I'm sure this creme brûlée was marvelous with it's crispy, crunchy top. I'm so happy you decided to share with Made with Love Mondays!

  22. Creme brulee is something that I've never made at home, but I do think it is absolutely delicious. Yours looks tasty, as always - a lovely recipe and presentation!

  23. I'm not a fan of espresso or coffee, but I really like creme brulee. And your photos are beautiful... I found you when I was browsing Crunchy Creamy Sweet's blog.

    But I *love* Jane Austen! And the excerpts you include with each post. Persuasion is my second-favorite novel, a very close runner-up to Pride & Prejudice. I'm sharing your blog with my Austen in Boston book club.

  30. Simply wonderful! I popped by from Jutta's blog - congratulations on the award! I'm crazy about the Japanese Cherry Tree flowers (I've posted about them here: http://meehameeha.blogspot.com/2012/06/and-god-created-pom-poms.html) but I didn't know the name of the tree until now. Thank you!
