Creme Brulee


  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

5 servings


2 cups heavy cream

4 egg yolks

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

10 teaspoons brown sugar, divided


Preheat oven to 325°F.

Scald cream using a double boiler, if available.

Whisk eggs, sugar and vanilla in a separate bowl. Temper the eggs by mixing 2 tablespoons of hot cream into the yolk mixture. Stir the tempered yolks into the cream. Strain cream and evenly divide the mixture between 5 broil-safe ramekins. Place
ramekins in a 1-inch water bath.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until set. Remove ramekins from water bath and cool on wire rack 10 minutes. Refrigerate a minimum of one hour.

Just before serving, sprinkle 2 teaspoons brown sugar evenly over each ramekin. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 2 to 5 minutes until sugar is melted. Serve immediately.

Note: For a crunchy topping, use a kitchen torch to brown the topping.
