Indulge in the exquisite taste of France with our signature Crème Brûlée, a classic French dessert renowned for its rich custard base and caramelized sugar topping.

Served in traditional ramekins, the luscious custard is gently caramelized to perfection, creating a tantalizing contrast of crisp sweetness atop the smooth custard beneath. Perfect for any occasion, our French Crème Brûlée promises an unforgettable culinary experience that captures the essence of French decadence.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus extra for caramelizing

Instructions:

1- Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C).

2- In a saucepan, pour the heavy cream. If using a vanilla bean, split it lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add both the seeds and the pod to the cream. If using vanilla extract, you'll add it later.

3- Heat the cream over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it just starts to simmer. Remove from heat immediately. If you used a vanilla bean, remove the pod from the cream.

4- In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture becomes pale and slightly thickened.

5- Slowly pour the hot cream into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from curdling.

6- If you didn't use a vanilla bean, add the vanilla extract to the mixture and stir well.

7- Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any lumps or bits of cooked egg.

8- Divide the mixture evenly among your ramekins or oven-safe dishes.

9- Place the ramekins in a baking dish and carefully pour hot water into the baking dish, around the ramekins, until it reaches about halfway up the sides of the ramekins. This creates a water bath, which helps ensure gentle, even cooking.

10- Carefully transfer the baking dish to the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the edges are set but the centers still jiggle slightly when shaken.

11- Remove the ramekins from the water bath and let them cool to room temperature. Then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until thoroughly chilled and set.

12- Just before serving, sprinkle a thin, even layer of granulated sugar over the top of each custard. You can use a kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar until it forms a golden-brown crust, or you can place the ramekins under a broiler for a few minutes until the sugar caramelizes. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.

13- Allow the caramelized sugar to harden for a minute or two before serving.
