French Vanilla Creme Brulee
*TIP: If you don't have a torch don't fret you can broil the tops under your oven broiler just until the sugar melts.
How to Make French Vanilla Creme Brulee
- Preheat oven to 300ºF. In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is thick and pale yellow.
- Add cream and french vanilla, and continue to whisk until well blended. Strain into a large bowl, skimming off any foam or bubbles.
- Divide mixture among 6 ramekins or custard cups. Place ramekins in a water bath (large pan filled with 1 or 2 inches of hot water) and bake until set around the edges, but still loose in the center, about 50 to 60 minutes.
- Carefully remove cups from water bath and chill for at least 2 hours, or up to 2 days. When ready to serve, sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of sugar over each custard. For best results, use a small, hand-held torch to melt sugar. If you don't have a torch, place under the broiler until sugar melts. Re-chill custards for a few minutes before serving.
