Creme Brulee

62 comments

Creme Brulee is a classic French dessert consisting of a custard topped with caramelized sugar. Creme brulee means 'burnt cream' in French, as the caramelized sugar on top of the custard is characteristic of creme brulee. Besides chocolate, this dessert is also great to serve as Valentine's sweet treat




Creme Brulee


 Crème brûlée
      
      Ingredients: 
      1 large Egg
      3 Egg yolks
      40g Caster sugar
      120g Fresh milk
      250g Whipping cream
      1 Vanilla pod or vanilla extract
      

      Method:
  • Preheat oven to 150C.
  • Pour fresh milk and whipping cream into a sauce pot. Slice the vanilla pod and scrape the seeds into the cream. Chop the empty pod into small pieces, and add to the cream too.
  • Bring the cream mixture to boiling point, then lower the heat and simmer gently for 3 minutes.
  • Lightly beat the sugar and eggs together in a large bowl until pale and smooth.
  • Strain the cream mixture through a fine sieve and bring back to boil. Gradually add the cream to the eggs while whisking vigorously. This will temper the eggs so that they do not curdle. Once all of the the cream has been added into the eggs, strain again and pour the mixture into 7-8 ramekins depending on size.
  • Put the ramekins in a large cake pan or roasting pan and pour in enough hot water to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  • Cook on the centre shelf for about 30-40 minutes, or until the custards are just set and still a bit wobbly in the middle. Remove the ramekins from the water and allow to cool to room temperature and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or till next day.
  • Before ready to serve, sprinkle some caster sugar evenly over the custard, then caramelise with a blowtorch.

    1. Chris,

      This is actually custard egg. Quite easy to make and I've already reduced sugar that's why you can see the topping is not really dark in colour.

    Creme brulee is one of my favourite desserts as it is rather light and not too sweet. Beautiful touches on the heart shapes! Well done.
