Simple Creme Brulee Dessert
Rich, creamy creme brulee should still be jiggly in the center when you pull it out of the oven.
- Serves: 2 persons
- 3tablespoons white sugar
- 1cup heavy cream
- 3egg yolks
- ¼teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2tablespoons white sugar, divided
Step 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 2Whisk 3 tablespoons sugar and cream in a microwave-safe bowl until well combined; heat the mixture in microwave until warm, 1 to 2 minutes, and whisk again to dissolve sugar. Whisk in egg yolks and vanilla extract until smooth.
Step 3Pour cream mixture into 2 ramekins. Set ramekins into a roasting pan and pour in enough hot water to reach halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
Step 4Bake in the preheated oven until creme desserts are set but still slightly jiggly when shaken, about 50 minutes. Remove ramekins from hot water and chill in refrigerator until cold, at least 2 hours.
Step 5Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar evenly over the top of each dessert. Use a kitchen torch to lightly toast and melt the sugar topping until brown and bubbly, about 30 seconds. Let the sugar topping cool before serving. To serve, use a spoon to crack the crisp sugar open to reveal the creamy dessert underneath.
