Hello Friday: Super Easy Creme Brulee

Happy Friday Everyone!  Here's a super easy one for the weekend...

I've never attempted to make Creme Brulee as I assumed it was too difficult.  But while browsing the Nigella Lawson website, I cam across this easy recipe.  Please note this was posted by a fan and is not Nigella's own recipe.

There are so few ingredients so its really cheap and it takes hardly any time.  I've seen some recipes that take up to 24 hours to complete.  I also assumed that you needed a blow torch to do the top but this recipe just calls for some sugar melted under the grill.   I love that you can make them in the ramekin dishes so are ideal for a dinner party.  This recipe will make six small puddings.



egg yolks
40 ml sugar
vanilla pod
250 ml cream
caster sugar (enough to sprinkle on top)

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Beat the egg yolks, add the sugar a little bit at a time. Beat until light colour and thick in mass.
Cut the vanilla pod open and scrape the seeds out with a sharp knife.
Mix the seeds and cream into the egg mixture. Now pour the mixture into ramekins. Put the ramekins in a large oven proof dish, poor cold water into the dish (about 3cm high). Bake the mixture for 30 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool. Now place in fridge for about 2 hours or over night.
Before serving, sprinkle castor sugar over each ramekin and caramelize either with a gas burner or under the grill.

Have fun!
