A tasty and different take on a dessert classic. The full version below is for a "dinner party" dessert -- in other words, it's very fancy and looks great but takes some time to put together. If you want to make it a bit simpler, just make the creme brulee base and then carmelise a bit of sugar on top. Still very tasty!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 140C or 275 degrees F.
  2. Make the brulée by warming the double cream, milk, coffee and half the sugar in a pan.
  3. Add the other half of the sugar to the egg yolks and whisk.
  4. Once the cream and milk are hot, pour onto the egg mixture and whisk well.
  5. Pour through a sieve to make sure it is smooth.
  6. Ladle the mixture into 4 coffee cups and place in an oven tray.
  7. Gently pour boiling water into the tray until it comes half way up the cups.
  8. Put them into the oven carefully for around 40 minutes until just set.
  9. Pour the milk into the cream, add the vanilla and whisk or blitz with a hand blender until frothy.
  10. Spoon on top of the coffee brulee.
  11. Sprinkle with cocoa or cinnamon and serve on a saucer with a spoon and two cubes of sugar coated fudge.
