Creme Brulee

Creme brulee is one of the easiest and yet most decadent of the French desserts. This recipe almost felt like I was cheating ! Made only of heavy cream, egg yolks and sugar, with a little vanilla, it takes mere minutes to make. Here is a pic…

The custard is baked. There is a layer of caramelized sugar on the top of the custard that should give a satisfying crack when your spoon first enters the custard. I have heard of this caramelizing being done in the broiler, but this recipe called for a small blowtorch passed over the sugar sprinkled over the top. Unfortunately, my caramel layer got a little too thick, and too dark. Still delicious, but not as pleasing to look at. Here is how mine turned out….

I will definitely make this again , especially since I very seldom have an excuse to use my kitchen blow torch. A very rich and very fun recipe.
