This was certainly silky. I found it a little eggy and would possibly only use 8 yolks next time. I added a vanilla bean whilst simmering the cream and added vanilla extract to the eggs and sugar. I will certainly use this recipe again
I love creme brulee and made this over the weekend. Since I didnt have a kitchen blow torch, I used my boyfriends larger one. :) That was worth all the time in making it. My boyfriend loved the "nice little treat". I added a raspberry sauce on top just to try it and it was great.
Wonderful creamy recipe! My only changes to the recipe was to double the (homemade) vanilla (we love vanilla) and as I didn't have any superfine sugar I just ran regular granulated sugar through the food processor first. Sushiman bought me a blow torch last year and I got to play with it making the sugar crust. We had just as much fun blow-torching the recipe as we did eating it.
