Crème Brulée

So easy to make and if you have left over egg yolks after you have had to use only the white for something else, it is the perfect dessert to attempt !

Here is the recipe :


4 Egg yolks
2 Cups of liquid cream
1/4 Cup of sugar
1 Tsp of vanilla beans
4-6 Tsp of sugar for topping


Heat oven at 350 Degrees F
Beat egg yolks with 1/4 cup of sugar until creamy and lemon in colour
Heat cream until just warm enough
Add a little of the warm cream to the egg mixture and whisk thoroughly to temper eggs (do not add all the cream at once as you could end up with scrambled eggs )
Once you have added all the cream slowly to the egg mixture , add the vanilla beans
Fill 4-6 ramekins with the mixture
Pour hot water in a tray , place the ramekins in the hot water bath
Bake in the oven for 25 - 30 mins
Remove from oven and allow to cool
Sprinkle sugar on top of each and using a blow torch caramelize the sugar on top. If you do not have a blow torch, this may be done in the oven under the broiler
Refrigerate and serve chilled with fresh fruits
