My ABSOLUTE favorite dessert - Crème Brûlée.
6 egg yolks
1 vanilla stick
4 dl double cream
1 dl milk
1 dl sugar
extra sugar for the “coating”
Divide the eggs and put the egg yolks in a bowl. The whites can be saved and used for a different recipe, like meringue for example.
Split the vanilla stock, and scrape the seeds out. Put the stick and seeds in a pot.
Pour over cream, milk and sugar. Stir and bring to a bowl. Lower the heat and let simmer for 3-4 minutes.
Take the vanilla stick out of the pot.
Whisk the egg yolks lightly with a whisk.
Gently stir in the yolks to the warm mixture. Be gentle and slow with this step and make sure to stir and mix everything together nicely.
Divide into individual molds.
Put the molds in a big pan. Pour hot water in to the pan, about 2 cm up on the molds. Be careful so that the water doesn’t get into the créme brûlées.
Bake in 300 degrees in the oven for about 45 minutes, until the batter is firm and wobbly.
Take the molds out of the oven and let cool. After cooling off in room temerature, move them into the fridge.
Before serving: sprinkle a light coat of sugar on top of the créme brûlée, and burn with a burner.
I hope you liked my recipe of my favorite dessert! I used a burner to get the crispy sugar coat, but you can also do it in the oven!
