Crème BRûlée

"Crème brûlée, crème brûlée the love of my life, the love of my life. My love for custard is known and actually could say very easy that I can never, but never, refuse anything with custard. This dessert is a different level and what I like about crème brûlée is that it’s so easy to make, it taste so divine and it requires only five ingredients. Isn’t this just amazing? Whoever invented crème brûlée should be blessed forever!"

Notes• Crème brûlée can be made or quite ahead of time, even the day before so if you decide to make if ahead at step 6 you just place in the refrigerator for whenever needed.
• Since this recipe only uses egg yolks, keep the egg whites for later use and there are many things you can make with egg whites such as meringue, marshmallows or an omelette like this with some extra egg whites.
• if you don’t have a blowtorch (most people don’t own one but if you do I’m impressed) the oven grill will work perfectly. Set this on and place all the ramekins or the oven dish under the grill after sprinkling the sugar on top.
Keep an eye on it all but it should not take longer than 2 min. It’s all depends on how high the grill has been set to but also how close this are to the actual grill, I recommend a good 5 to 10 cm distance.Definitely keeping an eye on this it’s a great idea as the sugar does caramelise pretty quick.

Serves6

Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time40 min

Ingredients

  • 500 ml double cream
  • 1-2 vanilla pod I used 2 smaller ones
  • 80 g of sugar plus 40 extra for topping
  • 5 eggs yolks * see recipe notes
  • 1 pinch salt

Instruction

  1. Start by preheating the oven at 150°C or 300°F/.

  2. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites.

  3. Into a bowl beat the egg yolks with the sugar together until it’s nice and homogeneous. Set aside.

  4. Split the vanilla pod(s) with a sharp knife all the way down through the middle and scrape the seeds out with the blade of the knife. Cut the vanilla beans pods into chunks. Add to the cream.

  5. Place a pan over a medium heat and pour in the cream. Bring this to boiling point but do not allow it to boil.

  6. Pour the cream over the egg and sugar mixture. Whisk this together until it feels that the sugar has completely dissolved. Discard the vanilla pods at this point if you have used them.

  7. Pour the crème brûlée mixture into the dish or ladle the mixture into ramekins and put those into a deep baking tray into which you pour hot water until the water would reach halfway up the ramekins (submerging these or the one dish). This is called bain-marie. You may also choose to pour the water after placing the tray into the oven – it may be easier.

  8. Place the baking tray, very very steady and carefully, into the preheated oven. Bake these for about 35- 40 minutes until they are set firm but still with a little jiggle in the middle.

  9. Allow to cool and if you don’t serve them immediately refrigerate them right up until serving.

  10. Just before serving sprinkle over the rest of the sugar and use a blowtorch to caramelise the sugar into a thin top layer. * See recipe notes for tips on how to caramelise the sugar if you do not have a blowtorch.
