Happy September everyone! It’s my favorite month of the year and to kick it off properly I made something extra delicious. Bruleed chai-spiced pots de creme – creamy, sweet and full of fall spice flavors.

My starting point for this recipe was Whole Food’s list of chai spices
(cinnamon, clove, ginger, black pepper corns and cardamom). I infused my custard with all this delicious goodness, then baked it and finished with a crunchy burned topping to add a bit of a campfire feel and flavor. Altogether this dessert is a ripper, hope you enjoy it! :)
