Vanilla Crème Brûlée

Ingredients

for 1 serving

  • 1 pod vanilla
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream (240 mL)
  • sugar, white and red

Preparation

  1. Remove the vanilla bean from the pod. With a small knife, cut down the middle and scrape out the beans.
  2. Add vanilla into a medium saucepan with the heavy cream.
  3. Bring it to a boil and set aside for 10 minutes for the vanilla to be infused.
  4. In a bowl, combine egg yolk and sugar. Whisk in the cream gradually.
  5. Place into a ramekin and sift out the pod.
  6. Fill the baking pan with hot water and bake for 25 minutes, or until the middle of the custard gives a jiggle.
  7. Set in the fridge for a few hours.
  8. Add spoonfuls of sugar on the top. Torch the sugar until it caramelizes and let it cool. Take your time to avoid burnt sugar.
  9. Using a metal cookie cutter place the shape on top of the hardened sugar. Carefully add colored sugar and torch until the sugar melts.
  10. Let it sit a few minutes before enjoying!
  11. Enjoy!
