Don’t let this recipe scare you - It is one of the easiest recipes you'll ever prepare and it will make you look like a star! I love creme brulee so much that it's almost always my choice for my birthday dessert. There are many variations and flavors that you can use but my favorite still remains this Classic Crème Brulee.

How to Make Classic Creme Brulee

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 300.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is thick and pale yellow.
  3. Add cream and vanilla, and continue to whisk until well blended.
  4. Strain into a large bowl, skimming off any foam or bubbles.
  5. Divide mixture among 6 ramekins or custard cups.
  6. Place in a water bath, and bake until set around the edges, but still loose in the center, about 40 to 50 minutes.
  7. Longer baking time will be required for larger, deeper ramekins.
  8. Remove from oven and leave in the water bath until cooled.
  9. Remove cups from water bath and chill for at least 2 hours, or up to 2 days.
  10. When ready to serve, sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of sugar over each custard.
  11. For best results, use a small, hand-held torch to melt sugar.
  12. If you don't have a torch, place under the broiler until sugar melts.
  13. Re-chill custards for a few minutes before serving.
