This is one of my family's favorite desserts. It is great for company because you fix it the day before.

Ingredients

  • 4 large
    egg yolks
  • 1/3 c
    granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp
    granulated sugar
  • 2 c
    heavy cream
  • 1
    vanilla bean, split lengthwise and scraped
  • 1/4 c
    light brown sugar, air dried (see note below)

How to Make Paul Bocuse's Creme Brulee

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 275ºF. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks with half of the granulated sugar. In a small saucepan, warm the cream with the vanilla scrapings and the remaining granulated sugar until steaming. Gradually whisk the hot cream into the egg yolks until blended. Strain the custard and pour it into 5-ounce ramekins or shallow gratin dishes.
  2. Set the ramekins in a small baking dish and add enough hot tap water to the dish to reach halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until just set. Let cool in the water bath for 10 minutes, then remove and let cool completely. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat the broiler. Sift a thin even layer of the air-dried brown sugar over each custard. Broil 1 ramekin at a time as close as possible to the heat source, until the sugar melts, forming a caramelized crust. Serve immediately.
  4. To air dry brown sugar, sift it onto a plate and leave it out, uncovered, for 1 day. If it's humid, the sifted sugar can also be dried in a 250ºF oven for 20 minutes.
