The combination of cake and cremas is superb. Haitian Cremas (Kremas) is made without eggs but contain dairy products and alcohol. You can make it yourself or purchase a bottle at a Haitian bakery. Or, you may ask your best Haitian friend to make it for you.

Making this Butter Cake and Cremas Cup

What’s better than butter cake with fresh strawberries and cremas?

Cremas is usually served with cake, a tradition in Haitian culture. This tradition is common during the holidays. The cake can be plain or with icing. Some people would pour the cremas on top of the cake, and some prefer the dunking method. Whatever option, the treat is exceptionally good.

I took this dessert to another level by cutting a large piece of the butter cake into chunks, placing them into a dessert cup, and pouring the cremas over them. And since strawberries are a common ingredient when making dessert, why not use them as a topping? The dessert was a hit the first time I made it.

My likes and dislikes

Fruits: I tried different types of fresh fruit toppings, and my preferences are strawberry, pear, pineapple, cherries, pomegranate, kiwi, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. I liked them all.

Other types of toppings: Whipped cream was not my favorite. Ice cream, yes! Applesauce, no, but apple chunks, yes. A fruit sauce is not my favorite; too sweet and not appetizing. Chocolate pieces/shavings, oh yeah! Chocolate sauce, still getting used to it as it is also very sweet.

The Cake: I poured enough cremas in each cup just for each chunk of cake to get the coconut and alcohol flavor. Filling the cup with cremas to the top may not be a good idea, as you may want the pieces to retain their shapes. If you add too much cremas, the texture will be pasty and doughy.

Other types of cake: it is best to make this dessert with a plain cake, like yellow cake, vanilla cake, or chocolate cake, another decadent dessert. A cake with tons of flavor might still be good, depending on your preference. Don’t forget that any filling and icing will add a lot of sugar content. The simpler the dessert, the tastiest it will be.

Weird toppings: peanut butter, my sister Erika tried it and did not find the taste bad. Sandra tried hazelnut spread; it was too sweet for her. The whipped cream was a NO for all of us, even with other members of the family and friends. Bacon bits were just too weird for me, but other people liked the saltiness and sweet taste.
