A Ramekin is a small, often white in colour, dish typically preferred for the preparation and serving of baked cheese recipes and deserts such as the classic Crème Brûlée.
The dish comes in a variety of sizes, however they are most always circular, often fluted sides on the exterior. It can be regarded as a vessel of the casserole variety, and similarly it is capable of withstanding the extreme heat of an oven, or, in the case of Crème Brûlée, the flare of a torch flame.
