Crema cremada ( Crema catalana )

The dessert known in most of Spain as crema catalana ("Catalan cream"), but as crema cremada ("burnt cream") in Catalan cuisine, is similar to a crème brûlée; the desserts have been called "virtually identical", although crema catalana is made with milk, while crème brûlée is made with cream. Crema catalana is a custard made from egg yolks, milk, sugar, cornflour (in modern recipes), and aromatics, typically lemon zest, cinnamon, or vanilla, with a crisp caramel crust.
