It may be one of the most perfect desserts in existence. At its base, custard: what's not to like about a decadent combination of cream, eggs, sugar, and vanilla? The creamy, sumptuous taste and texture is the bedrock of sweets the world over. Next, a sprinkling of coarse sugar: add an open flame and you have a delicately crisp, caramelized crust that could bring even the most rational person to their knees with its startling depth of flavor.
It's safe to say the French know what they're doing in the kitchen--now you give it a try with a coffee-flavored version.
