Crème Brulee instructions

  1. Score vanilla pods lengthways and remove seeds. Add milk, cream, vanilla seeds and pods to a pan and slowly bring to the boil..
  2. In a bowl, beat the yolks and sugar until light and fluffy. When the milk and cream are just about to boil, remove the vanilla pods and add little by little to the egg mixture, whisking continuously. Remove any froth or bubbles that surface..
  3. Add your fruit (optional) to the bottom of the dishes. Pour the creamy mixture over the fruit. (Ramekins will do but small clay cassoulet are more suited to this pudding as it should really be quite shallow). Bake in a shallow baking tray half filled with water for 25 minutes. (140 degrees centigrade). The custards should be set but wobbly in the middle. Let the custards cool, then chill in the refrigerator..
  4. Before serving, sprinkle the top of the custards with 2 - 3 teaspoons of sugar and gently shake the ramekin to spread it evenly. Use a mini blowtorch or grill to caramelise the sugar until it turns a dark amber colour. Not too dark though as it will taste bitter. DO NOT test whether it is hot with your finger! Remember to leave a moment before serving. (You don’t want any burnt tongues either). Sprinkle with a dusting of icing sugar and fruit of your choice..
