Crème brûlée recipe

Creamy and delicious: Crème brûlée
Creamy and delicious: Crème brûlée
This classic dessert will impress any man if you serve this homemade creamy pud, (especially if you're wearing nothing but a pinny).

Ingredients:
 
500ml double cream
1 vanilla pod
100g caster sugar, plus extra for the topping
6 egg yolks

How to make:
1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 1/140°C. Pour the cream into a saucepan.

2. Split the vanilla pod lengthways and scrape the seeds into the cream.

3. Chop the empty pod and add to the cream. Bring to the boil then lower the heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes.

4. Beat together the sugar and egg yolks in a large heatproof bowl until pale and creamy. 

5. Bring the cream back to boiling point. Pour it over the egg mixture, whisking all the time until thickened – this indicates that the eggs have begun to cook slightly. Strain through a fine sieve into a large jug and then use this to fill six ramekins about two-thirds full.

6. Place the ramekins in a large roasting tray and pour in enough hot water to come halfway up their sides.

7. Place on the center shelf of the oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until the custards are just set. Remove from the water and allow the custards to cool to room temperature.

8. When ready to serve, sprinkle one level teaspoon of caster sugar evenly on the surface of each custard and caramelize with a mini blowtorch.

9. Leave the crème brûlées to cool for a couple of minutes and serve.
