Creme Brulee

Preparation time, 4 hours. Cooking time, 45 mins.

Ingredients Yields 3 individual brulees

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 5 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 pod (split) vanilla
  • Extra caster sugar


Preheat the oven to 150c.
Pour the milk, cream, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons sugar into a saucepan. Heat gently over a low heat until close to boiling. Remove from the heat and let cool. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod into the milk and discard the pod.

In a bowl, beat the egg yolks with the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar until they are creamy and pale. Pour the milk over the egg yolks and mix well.

Pour the mixture into 3 individual ramekins. Place the ramekins in a roasting dish and pour boiling water into the dish until 2/3 of the way up the sides of the ramekins. Place in the oven and bake for 45-50 mins or until the custard is just set.
Cool to room temperature and then pop in the fridge for at least 3 hours.

Sprinkle the tops with a generous layer of caster sugar. Use a kitchen blowtorch to caramelize the sugar into a solid layer of golden toffee goodness. Serve and enjoy!
