Cr�me Br�l�e

Stop everything right now and get your shit together and make these incredible homemade and delicious cr�me br�l�es.

Here�s what you will need:

  •     4 cups heavy cream
  •     2 tsp vanilla extract
  •     6 egg yolks
  •     1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup in mixture and 1/2 cup for crust


1. Heat heavy cream and vanilla extract in a sauce pan until hot, but not boiling.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks and 1/2 cup of sugar until well mixed. Pour in the hot cream gradually, mixing continually.

3. Place six (7 to 8-ounce) ramekins into a large roasting pan. Pour hot water into the pan to come roughly halfway up the sides of the ramekins.

4. Pour the egg mixture into the ramekins and bake at 325�F / 165�C for 45 - 50 minutes. The cr�me br�l�e should be set, but still a little jiggly in the middle. Remove the ramekins from the roasting pan, allow to cool to room temperature, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours and up to three days.

5. Remove the cr�me br�l�e from the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before browning the sugar on top. Spread a tablespoon of sugar on top of each cr�me br�l�e. Using a torch, melt the sugar to for a crispy top. If you don�t have a torch, you can broil the cr�me br�l�e to melt the sugar. Keep an eye on it, to make sure you don�t over cook it. Allow the cr�me br�l�e to sit for at least five minutes before serving.
