  • Preheat oven to 110C. Stir sugars and 1 tbsp water in a saucepan over medium heat until dissolved, then cook, without stirring, until caramel (5-6 minutes). Add 150ml water (be careful as hot caramel will spit) and stir over low heat until dissolved (2-3 minutes), then cool slightly.

Strain, then pour into eight 200ml ovenproof ramekins, place in a roasting pan lined with a tea towel, pour in enough hot water to come halfway up the sides, cover with foil and bake until just set (30-35 minutes). Cool, then refrigerate (1 hour).
