Crème brûlée – a delicious french classic

Standard

As a child this dessert seemed like the most decadent, most elegant thing in the world.. and I always wanted to have it 😉 well, now as an adult I can have it whenever I want, as it’s so easy to make! It takes hardly any time to prepare it, all it needs is plenty of resting time to set.. So.. let’s get started!

For 4 servings you will need:

4 egg yolks

4 tbsp of sugar

1 vanilla pod

200ml of whisking cream

100 ml of milk

Pinch of salt

4 ramekins

This is dead simple. Just mix the yolks with the sugar. Don’t whisk them too much, you just want to mix the sugar in, not airrate the batter too much. Heat up the milk and cream in a sauce pan, add the seeds of a vanilla pod. Once it’s hot,but not boiling, turn it off. Pour some into the yolks while whisking at all times, then add some more and more..gradually, until all your milk/cream is in the yolks. Once that’s done I mix it well, so all the sugar is disolved. I pour the mix into 4 ramekins. I put them into a deep tray and pour in some recently boiled water- until about half way up the ramekin. I put it into the oven for about an hour, 15-160C. they will come out wobbly, don’t worry. Let them cool completely in the water. Then cover with foil and put into the fridge for the night to set.

When you’re ready to serve, take a spoon of sugar, smooth over the top of the Crème brûlée and torch it until you have the desired colour on the caramel. I like to serve it with some fresh fruit 😉 enjoy!

 

P.S it should crack when you brak it open with your spoon!
