A decadent, rich and creamy Creme Brulee married with a sweet & fragrant apple pie filling.
This was inspired by the delicious apple combo used in Dunked Apples by @silky, which is, by far, the best apple combo for use in swweet, bakery and tobacco style recipes.
The bruleee base is sompliments of my, well used, 1-2-3 brulee stone which encapsulates a Creme Brulee perfectly in every sense. I have been using this base for a very long time and tend to never bore of it. I occasionally have it ‘straight’, without any additional flavouring, to remind me of its magnificence! Simply put, it is decadent vanilla custard crowned with caramlised sugar.
FA Fuji is the undisputed king of apples and here, it does all the heavy lifting on the apple front. Sweet, crispy and uber realistic, FA Fuji précis a Fuji apple uncannily. The INW apple brings a sweet apple juice type vibe to the party and boosts the Fuji’s sweetness to create a stunning apple combo.
FLV apple filling is a McDonalds apple pie in a bottle and serves its purpose very accurately. It provides a bakery cinnamon flavour with a wonderfully rich, baked apple sweetness. Do not venture any higher here as the cinnamon will dominate but not as aggressively as FLV Rich Cinnamon. Used sparingly, this will add a new dimension to your bakeries and perhaps tobacco?
Gives this baby 5 days or so to settle in.
A warm, satured mango and peach catalan cream. Perfect rainy day vape.
I used a combo of Cap sweet mango and jf honey peach for the main profile. The combination of the juicy sunripened mango and the syrupy sweet honey peach creates a rich stone fruit layer.
For the custard base i wanted a rich and deep brulee-base (inw brulee and fa catalan creme) but with timid eggy tones courteousy of the Cap custard. Stole light carmalised sugar tones from the tfa caramel original and the soft, warm vanilla tones from the inw shisha vanilla.
I needed a light touch of sweetener to carry the profile.
I am half way through the bottle off the shake... I recon a moddest 3 day steep will help tame the mango and peach and allow It to settle in a bit
A delectable, rich and creamy creme brulee infused with fresh mango.
The 3-2-1 Creme Brulee has been my creamy custard stone for over a year now and it keeps on surprising me with its magnitude of uses. Here, I paired it with the 'in vogue' Mango by FE. This is nothing revolutionary, just the coming together of 2 things of beauty...
FE Mango continues to impress & I keep finding new uses for it. Here, it sits perfectly atop a luscious brulee, which allows it to shine by enhancing the inherent fruity creaminess of the mango. Feel free to drop the Creme Brulee to 1% for a less pronounced brulee
This is good to ago after 3 days, best after 6.
My V8 a year after trying Primative's Buttermilk Pie. While this is not an exact clone, to achieve a similar robust dessert vape requires a heavy hand and more than a few ingredients.
To start, I wanted a dense chess pie... and I like mine sweet. The Vanilla Custard with Sweet Cream are at the root of that, complimented by both Inw Creme Brûlée and FA Custard (Inw didn't give me enough of the caramelized top hence the brown sugar & vanilla).
You can do with less frosting (but it levels the mix nicely) or without the Super Sweet but at 0.75% & 0.5% why... this is a zero calorie extravagance.
The Rich Cinnamon, at just one drop per 30 m, is a must... two is fine, don't cry., it won't destroy things.
Another must is the 3:1 Whipped Cream & Golden Butter which are the buttermilk of the recipe.. This key combination was uncovered in 2016 at least.
For the crust I opted for a simple 2:1 which does this recipe justice.
Give it a taste before you dial it down, go back to the original and think, If you were to bake a chess pie, what would you want.
Graham Crackers and Custard are a match made in heaven. There are countless versions of this dynamic duo, but this one is mine. I'm very happy with how this turned out, and after many, MANY versions, this is the one I keep coming back to. We've got rich vanilla custard with cinnamon and subtle notes of caramelized brown sugar and honey. Then come in the crunchy cookie graham crackers. Thick and dense, these two partners make one hell of a team. The profile is simple for the most part, but I had a blast working in different concentrates to really fill this vape out into something I'm quite proud of. Most of these flavors you will find carry a dark sweetness that I am very fond of, and I think it helps fit the theme nicely.
I really like bending bakeries. I could never seem to get graham cracker right, though. I tried so many graham cracker combinations and they all fell short. I could never get that crunch that I wanted. I needed that texture. So I decided to invite FA Cookie to the party. This is a beast of a concentrate when you want that AP heavy crunch. It's kind of dry, but we are dropping those Graham Crackers into custard, right?
FA Cookie is a crunchy bakery 'cookie’ base that works very well to build our graham cracker off of. It's definitely AP heavy, and works well as a jump-off point because of its graininess and neutrality. It's dark, and mildly sweet, kind of like my Irish mother.
That's our foundation, folks. Let's start building that bad Larry up. I used two graham crackers in conjunction to the FA Cookie, both serving very different purposes. CAP Graham Cracker brings the cinnamon, and FW Graham Cracker brings some more crunch, with a touch honey.
CAP Graham Cracker has a decently strong bakery cinnamon sweetness, some people find it off-putting, but I personally love it once it settles down a bit. You are going to get some butter, and a slight graininess from this concentrate which is helpful to build on that cookie base. This thang tastes pretty authentic to me, almost like they were homemade and baked. These graham crackers came out of the oven, not out of a box. This concentrate needs help in the crunch department, and that's why we are also using FA Cookie and FW Graham Cracker.
FW Graham Cracker is hands down my favorite GC. If I had to only pick one, this is it. You ever had Honey Maid Graham Crackers? You know, the ones that come in sheets and you have to break apart? These are them. Definitely sweet, definitely cookie-like, and it packs that punchy crunchy. It also brings some honey, which is awesome in combination with CAP's offering. These 3 bakeries working together create our graham cracker cookie. It's tasty, and in my opinion a very clear representation of a solid graham cracker to crumble up into our custard.
Custard is so bomb. They are easily my favorite profile and I absolutely love tinkering with new ways to elevate them. This custard base seems pretty standard, but each ingredient was chosen very deliberately to help bolster our graham cracker. Let's start with the custard base, no surprise here, CAP Vanilla Custard.
CAP Vanilla Custard is universally accepted as a solid canvas to paint upon when it comes to developing a custard recipe, and there is no exception here. It's eggy. It's rich and buttery. It's thick, creamy and sweet. I didn't want to bring it too high, because that depth and intrigue was going to come from our cream and vanilla addition. I like taking a custard and accentuating it with the proper cream, and the proper vanilla. It just works.
DIYFS Holy Vanilla found it's home here because I decided I wanted to keep things dark. It's a superb vanilla. Malty and creamy with a tad of spice that leans towards extract. Crack them beans, baby. The rich vanilla sinks into the custard and thickens it up, all while bringing a maltiness that plays off not only the custard base, but the graham cracker. It helps bring dimension and clarity to the graham cracker which helps deliver a more accurate end product. Nothing too out of the box with this one, it just fits.
INW Creme Brulee is what sets this custard apart for me. I mean honestly, this is just another custard, but it has this delectable brown sugar note accompanied by creamy vanilla. It's not quite burnt but more of a bubbly caramelization of sugar. It again, not only brings depth to our custard, but our graham cracker as well. Brown sugar and custard? Sign me up. Sticky brown sugar graham crackers in a delicious vanilla custard? Put me in coach.
And there you have it. Crunchy, crumbly graham crackers and a robust vanilla custard sure to satisfy you bakery heads like me. Hope you enjoy.
Last year about this time I was working on a deep fried Cran-apple pie, but I never could create something I was happy with. Now that I got a few more flavors to work with I figured I'd give the profile another try.
FLV Apple Filling: Brings a delicious apple pie filling with a dash of cinnamon.
FA Apple pie & WF Deep Fried Dough: Make the crust of the fried pie.
FLV Cranberry: Can't really have a cran-apple pie without Cranberry. FLV is my preferred cranberry.
INW Creme Brulee: Adds some creaminess and some dark toasty sweetness.
FLV Sweetness: used to sweeten the whole thing up a bit and keep the cranberry from being to tart.
Best after a week steep
PLEASE RATE/REVIEW IF YOU MIX
Mixed for the mixen vixens the image this week looked to me to be a graham cracker base with a philly cream cheese filing and a banana flambe topping
On the inhale of the vape you get the dark sweet caramelized notes followed by the sweet vanilla cream cheese and slight cooked caramelized banana finish
FW Graham Cracker is a solid graham cracker with some vanilla butter notes - it creates the base for this mix along with JB biscut for some additional texture and butter notes
INW yes we can cheesecake and INW creme brulee work well together to create a creamy filling very similar to the philly cream cheese . It is more of a creamy vanilla then an authentic Italian cream cheese filling. The burnt sugar note of INW cream brulee is also used in this mix to support that flambe note .
The SA banana flambe is a sweet cooked banana, that initally can be a bit like candy but has a really nice full body. It is noticeable on the back end of the inhale but is light on the caramelized sugar and rum. To support the caramelized sugars and syrup I added Jamaican rum, golden syrup and smokey butterscotch FLV smoked butterscotch adds a woody warm note on the back end which is really unique., and build off of the rum. VT golden syrup is a darker sweet syrup that has a nice sticky mouth feel
NOTES/SUB: This is a sweet mix on its own so does not really need sweetner but if you want to add more would recommend FLV sweetness .50%
Banana Flambe can be subed with Molinberry soft banana or WF banana puree ( for a slightly brighter top banana) if you want more of a cake note then TPA banana nut bread has a solid banana note and could work here .
In other versions of this mix I have subed Smokey Butterscotch for FW butter pecan if you do not want that smokey note but you want more texture and swet nuttiness to the mix or WF Butterscotch cream pie for more cream and lighter butterscotch top note .
My take on Chef's Mexican Fried Ice Cream
A sweet vanilla ice-cream inhale and a cereal exhale with hints of cinnamon & almond, bringing all the flavours together with the added taste of coconut.
It's not exactly the same as the original but it's close. If you love that, you will love this one too. If you sub the rich cinnamon for flv cinnamon crunch at .3% and bump the AP a little bit it will be closer to the original. But I prefer it this way 😉
Ideal to bridge the period when Chef's one is out of stock. (which happens sometimes because it is so good and popular)
If you like this recipe, you should give Chef's one a try as well, you can find the oneshot over here
