How to Use Ramekins for More than Just Dessert

This sponsored post is part of my collaboration with eBay.

You might think that ramekins can only be used to create yummy desserts, however, they can actually be used for much, much more.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to be in my kitchen, creating all sorts of tasty dishes. I’m pretty sure that my love of cooking and baking stems from my mother. Why? Well, in addition to growing up on a farm, my mother was a high school Home Economics teacher for nearly 23 years.

Growing up on a farm meant we ate really, really well. Between our three gardens, we grew practically every fruit and vegetable you can imagine. We also raised livestock such as chickens, ducks, cattle, and pigs.

Besides gardening, my mother also taught me everything she knows about cooking and baking. I fondly remember mom teaching me how to cook all kinds of delicious foodstuff using a wide range of bakeware. I look back now and am so grateful to her for all of her coaching and the lessons she taught me.

As tradition goes… my daughter is also a good cook. One dessert she is famous for is her delicious homemade Crème Brulee. Wow! I can’t even begin to describe how exciting it is when she places a ramekin full of luscious, warm Crème Brulee in front of me. Yummy!

Ramekins are frequently associated with Crème Brulee, however, ramekins can also be used for much more than dessert.

A ramekin is a small glazed ceramic, porcelain, or glass bowl commonly used for preparing and serving individual portions. Ramekins are specifically designed and constructed to withstand high temperatures.

Classic ramekins are circular and white with a fluted exterior and a thin lip on the inside. Ramekins come in a variety of sizes, ranging anywhere from 3 to 6 inches wide and are usually wider than they are tall. The volume sizes range from 3 ounces, all the way up to 12 ounces.

Bread such as chocolate muffins, mini yeast rolls, cinnamon rolls, and monkey bread work best when made in 6-ounce ramekins.

7-ounce ramekins are the perfect size for serving a variety of snacks such as macaroni and cheese, popcorn, puppy chow, chips, and candies.
