creme brulee

ingredients :

  1. 3 eggs - slightly beaten

  2. 2 cups light cream

  3. 1/4 cup sugar

  4. 1/4 tsp salt

  5. 1/2 tsp vanilla

  6. 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Method :

  • In a heavy saucepan, combine eggs, cream, sugar and salt. Cook and stir over low heat, until mixture coats a metal spoon. Cooks 2 minutes more. Stir in vanilla. Pour into 6 ramekins (@ 6 oz). Chill.
  • Sift brown sugar equally among the 6 dishes and spread evenly on top. Using a torch melt the sugar and form a crispy top. Or if using oven, put the ramekins in a shallow pan of ice cubes and water (au bain marie), place it in the middle of rack and broil at 400 degree F for 4 to 5 minutes or until bubbly crust form.

  • Serve warm or chilled.
