creme

I couldn’t remember where I got the recipe,  i think it’s from some magazine in a cafe.

Ingredients :

4 egg yolks

1/3 cup caster sugar + 4 tsp

500 ml cream

1/3 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract / vanilla paste from real vanilla bean (its worth it!)

  • break the egg yolks, and give it a little stir
  • put the cream in the mixing bowl, add sugar, microwave for 30 sec just to disolve the sugar, stir with fork
  • stir in the egg yolks, add vanilla and salt
  • divide in 4 ramekin cups, put the cups in a baking dish filled 1/2 with water, this to prevent the creme brulee from drying out
  • bake in 150 – 160 C oven for  1 hr
  • chill until set ( I skipped this part)
  • sprinkle the top with 1 tsp caster sugar
  • put under a hot griller for 2-3 min. until the sugar caramelized (be very careful, not to burn the sugar- like i did 😦 )

what goes well with creme brulee?
