Perfect Crème Brûlée Recipe

This simple to prepare Crème Brûlée recipe is a delicious baked custard  topped off with caramelized sugar for the perfect dessert.

Take it to the next level by serving it with fresh whipped cream and berries.


– vanilla beans – heavy whipping cream – egg yolks – sugar

Preheat the oven to 325°. Cut  the beans in half longways and scrape out all of the seeds using a  small knife. Transfer the seeds to a medium size sauce pot and  pour in the heavy cream.

Cook the pot over low heat until scalded. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs and sugar until combined. Add in a small amount of the scalded cream to the egg-sugar mixture and whisk gently.

Pour in the remaining hot cream and gently mix until combined. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a pouring bowl or a regular bowl.

Place 6 crème brulee ramekins into a cookie sheet tray and evenly pour the crème brulee batter into the ramekins.

Put  the tray onto the oven rack and pour in enough warm water to fill up  the tray to the ½ way mark on the crème brulee ramekins. Cook for 40 to  45 minutes or until firm in the center.
