Creme Brulee Recipe Ingredients
What you need for your Creme Brulee
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
Brown Sugar for the caramelised topping
Step 1 - To begin with you must heat the Heavy Cream until it is simmering
Step 2- Take the eggs and separate the yolks
Step 3 - Add the sugar and whisk the the egg yolks until they are smooth
Step 4 - We need to get the oven ready - so Preheat the oven to 250F
Step 5 - Pour about 1/3rd of the cream into the yolks and whisk gently. This is to temper the yolks so that they don't cook.
Step 6 - Pour all the remaining cream and whisk the mixture gently again while being careful not to create many air bubbles
Step 7 - Strain the mixture to remove any lumps that may have formed
Step 8 - Add the vanilla extract to the mixture for a distinct flavour
Step 9 -Place the ramekins in the baking tray and Pour the mixture into the ramekins and fill it almost to the brim. Next step is to get some boiling water.
Step 10 - The creme brulee will be cooked in a water bath. Pour boiling water in the tray to reach halfway through the sides of the ramekins
The ramekins will now be placed in the oven and allowed to cook for about half hour. You will know when its ready. It should jiggle a bit like jelly. Allow it to cool for about 4-5 hours. You will now move to the final and the most exciting step of Torching the Creme Brulee
