Creme Brulee

Warm creme brulee that has crispy caramelised sugar layer on the top,
melt in the mouth creamy pudding-liked texture is definitely a great dessert for everyone.

Look at the caramelised sugar^^

Creamy and soft pudding!
Just taste awesome, perfect level of sweetness!
You will need :
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Castor sugar - 100g
Double cream - 375 ml
Egg yolk - 4

Mix the egg yolk with the sugar until thick and pale.

Just like this this, "ribbon stage"

Meanwhile wait for the cream to boil.

While whisking, pour the hot cream in the egg mixture, mix until well combined.
Then return to the stove and mix until its slightly thicken.

Pour the mixture into the ramekins.

In a deep tray, pour in boiling water until its half depth of the height of the ramekins.

Then, they are ready to go into the preheated oven at 150 degress celcius.
Bake for around 35 minutes until the top is firm and the middle is bit runny.

You can always serve it immediately or chill it in the fridge before the next step.
Caramelised step: sprinkle on some castor sugar.

Use a blowtorch and caramelised the sugar until its brown in colour.

Eating time @.@
You will find the the top is very crispy when you poke through the top layer with a spoon :)
Thats a good sign as the top is the main point of this dessert!
Remember to serve it while the top caramelised sugar is still crunchy!
No point of having a creme brulee that have softened top :)
