This is the Easy Crème Brûlée recipe.
- Prep: 15 min
- Cooking: 5 min
- 2 1/4 cups (560 mL) 35% cream
- 1/3 cup (80 mL) sugar
- 1 egg
- 3 egg yolks
- 2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup (60 mL) brown sugar
- 6 strawberries or other small berries to garnish
In small saucepan heat cream over medium heat just until small bubbles begin to form around edges; remove from heat.
In medium bowl whisk sugar with egg, egg yolks and vanilla until well blended. Gradually whisk hot cream into egg mixture until blended.
Ladle into 6 lightly buttered (6 oz/175 mL) ovenproof custard cups. Place in baking dish filled with water so that it reaches halfway up sides of cups.
Bake in preheated 350 °F (180 °C) oven 30 to 35 min or until a knife inserted in center of custard comes out nearly clean (center will be jiggly). Remove from hot water; refrigerate until cold.
Just before serving, place custard cups on baking sheet. Sprinkle custard with brown sugar. Broil about 3 in (7.5 cm) from broiler for about 1 min, or until sugar melts and turns golden (watch carefully so sugar doesn't burn). Remove from oven, serve topped with strawberry.
