Recipe: Melt 1/2 cup of white sugar in a pan until it is light brown, then add the brown sugar and melt it, too. Add about 1/3 cup of boiling water to the melted sugar and bring to a boil until you have dark brown, bubbling syrup. Pour the sugar syrup in eight ramekins. Beat the eggs with the remaining 1/2 cup white sugar and a pinch of salt, in a mixer at low to medium speed. Gradually add the warm milk and vanilla extract. Pour the mixture in the ramekins, place them in a hotel pan and pour hot water around them to little over the middle of the cups. Bake the Creme Caramel in a preheated oven at 300 F for about an hour or until the creme is set. Do not worry if there is a thin burnt flake on top of the Creme Caramel at the end - it will taste even better. Let the custard cups cool down and then refrigerate them until completely cold. Loosen the Creme Caramel from the cups with a small knife, if necessary, and serve it upside down. The caramelized sugar syrup should run over its sides into the serving plate.
