I recently got one of those fun miniature torches. I was so excited to use it so I made some creme brulee. I love the taste of french vanilla so I gave this old classic a twist and used french vanilla extract. I fell in love with the first bite! Impress your guess at your next dinner party and try this super easy dessert.

*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

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. Add cream and french vanilla, and continue to whisk until well blended. Strain into a large bowl, skimming off any foam or bubbles.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
