Ramekin - Various Sizes

  • Sale
  • Regular price $1.95

The term is derived from the French ramequin, a cheese- or meat-based dish baked in a small mold. The French term is derived from early modern Flemish rammeken, which translated to 'toast' or 'roasted minced meat', itself apparently from ram 'battering ram' + -kin 'diminutive', but it is unclear why.

Traditionally circular with a fluted exterior, ramekins can also be found in novelty shapes like flowers, hearts, and stars.

Ramekins are usually designed to resist high temperatures, as they are frequently used in ovens or, in the case of crème brûlée, exposed to the flame of a cooking torch.
