Creme Brulee

Had a lonely day in the kitchen trying to use up leftover egg yolks from previous macaron making. There were a lot of recipes that required egg yolks but the one that sounded most appealing was creme brulee… plus it required little ingredients and I had most of them already :) me so lazy

Had 8 egg yolks total. So I did a recipe and a third… awkward

In their little ramekins in a water bath. bloop bloop

Torched with some sugarrr

And topped with blurrberrrers

Recipe was from Allrecipes

Ingredients

6 egg yolks
6 tablespoons white sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons brown sugar (I didn’t use this… just regular white sugar)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Beat egg yolks, 4 tablespoons sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl until thick and creamy.
  3. Pour cream into a saucepan and stir over low heat until it almost comes to boil. Remove the cream from heat immediately. Stir cream into the egg yolk mixture; beat until combined.
  4. Pour cream mixture into the top of a double boiler. Stir over simmering water until mixture lightly coats the back of a spoon; approximately 3 minutes. Remove mixture from heat immediately and pour into a shallow heat-proof dish.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or overnight.
  6. Preheat oven to broil.
  7. In a small bowl combine remaining 2 tablespoons white sugar and brown sugar. Sift this mixture evenly over custard. Place dish under broiler until sugar melts, about 2 minutes. Watch carefully so as not to burn.
  8. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Refrigerate until custard is set again.
