Crema de oua la cuptor / Egg cream in the oven


Ingrediente / ingredients:

- unt pentru uns forma de copt - butter to grease the baking form
- 1100 ml lapte - 1100 ml of milk
- 8 oua - 8 eggs
- 150 g zahar brun - 150 g of brown sugar
- esenta de vanilie - vanilla essence

Avem nevoie de 2 forme pentru cuptor. Una mare in care sa intre una mai mica. Ungem forma mai mica cu unt si o introducem in forma mai mare.

We need two forms for the oven. One big and a smaller one. Grease the smaller form with butter and put it in larger form.


Mixam ouale cu zaharul si esenta de vanilie. Incalzim laptele (sa nu fiarba) si il turnam treptat peste oua, amestecand continuu. Crema o turnam in forma unsa cu unt dupa ce o strecuram.

We mix eggs with sugar and vanilla essence. Heat the milk (do not boil) and gradually pour it over the eggs, stirring continuously.The cream is poured in butter-shaped form.


Introducem forma in cuptor, turnam apa rece in forma mai mare si o lasam la copt aprox o ora si jumatate.

Put the shape in the oven, pour cold water into the larger form and leave it to bake for about an hour and a half.


Se serveste calda dar este foarte buna si rece. Eu am presarat putin ness deasupra dar puteti adauga cacao, cocos, ciocolata, etc.

You can  served it warm but is very good cold too. I have sprinkled a little ness on top but you can add cocoa, coconut, chocolate, etc.

Bon appetit!
