Perfect texture!! I used half and half instead of milk. I do prefer it a bit sweeter so I'll increase the sugar a bit. But it is super easy to make and everyone loved it. I did not find it too eggy and broiler was fine but I think I'll invest in a torch.
Very, very good recipe for Creme Brulee.........I've made it twice now, and have decreased the cream and milk down to one cup to make a more solid version.... But it definitely deserves 5 stars.....I too have ordered many creme brulee's at various restaurants and this is the closest to the best I've had....
Six eggs would have been sufficient. Other than that it is a basic recipe. Tastes good, just basic.
Yum! What a great way to use up leftover egg yolks from recipes that only take the whites! Sure, it's a little eggy tasting but the flavor is nice. I used the vanilla bean and I have a torch for the sugar on top. Fun! This was also the easiest creme brulee recipe I've ever made. That's a huge plus!
I consider myself a creme brulee "snob" and while this was tasty, it was VERY eggy--more like an egg custard than creme brulee. Thanks for posting!
I made this for dinner party Saturday and it was very easy and very good. I took reviewer Vontrottzu's suggestion and added 8 oz of melted chocolate to it and got a milk chocolate creme brulee. Next time think I will add more chocolate to get a darker chocolate creme brulee. No problems with it not setting up right, it was nice and firm but I used all cream instead of half cream and half milk. Excellent, thanks Colby's Mom.
Oh my this is so good, and easy!
Great taste, and very easy to make.Next time I make it, I am going to use Splenda instead of sugar.
I made this last week for my family and we all loved it. Cheers
My neighbor bought me a mini-torch/creme brulee set for my b-day. Wife and I spent the day outside doing planting, gardening, etc. Neighbor and her husband spent the day scraping and prepping their house to paint. I'd been wanting to try this recipe, and I figured everyone could use a treat after a long day of manual labor. This was easy (I mean EASY) to make and came out perfect. I substituted regular sugar for the caramelized top and it came out crispy and beautiful. A definite make again.
